"Summer afternoon--summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language." --Henry James
We tend to agree with James--summer is one of our favorite seasons, too. It's a time of watching your kids play in the water until the sun goes down, waking up at dawn to go fishing, and feasting on steamed crabs while sipping lemonade at water's edge. Summer on the Bay is all these things and more.
And so in honor of our last gasp of the season this Labor Day weekend, we've put together some of our favorite Chesapeake summer moments and wanted to share them with you.
A special thanks to the many of you who contributed your own images and thoughts about the summer season to the album. And for those of you who didn't, there's still time to submit your photos if you have any you'd like to share. Just follow the instructions on the album to learn more.
We know that you share our love of the Bay and its rivers and streams, and we enjoy seeing the photos that they inspire--it reaffirms all that we do to restore and protect the waters we love for you and for future generations.
