What can I expect weather-wise in later October in Crisfield?
It is fall. Sometimes the weather is quite warm and sunny (Indian Summer), but it can be cold and sunny or cold and rainy. We live right across the bay from there, and we have an Oyster Festival the third weekend in October. I'd bet on the weather being good but maybe windy. Here's the averages
Avg. High 69.0° F
Avg. Low 53.0° F
Rec. High 90.0° F(10/01/1986)
Rec. Low 30.0° F (10/28/1976)

Although Annapolis is "Crab Town" in CB lingo, the real crab town in Maryland is Crisfield.
The street signs in Crisfield all have an outline of a crab on them. This one was on the corner next to The Cove Restaurant. I don't know the significance of Charles Adams Corner.
