"I took the photo on Lower Hooper's Island on the Eastern Shore. I was actually out scouting paddling sites for CBF's (now-defunct) Maryland Canoe Program for an Eastern Shore Chesapeake Classroom's trip I was getting ready to lead. We saw the terrapin in the road and before we moved it to the side, I laid down in the road to take the picture . . . To me, the Chesapeake Bay is an incredible resource for so many people-- from recreational fisherman to professional watermen, to families paddling and sailing on the Bay and its many tributaries. Because everyone relies on [the Bay] in one way or another, we are all responsible for taking care of it . . ."
--Jeff Allenby (as told to Emmy Nicklin)
