Sunset from Virginia Beach's First Landing State Park. Photo by Jeannie Winters.
"The Chesapeake Bay is a place I escape to, and I always find it to be beautiful from the beach in Cape Story by the Sea, regardless of the weather. I always have my camera with me whether walking or kayaking and the sunsets, seagulls, sandpipers, pelicans, and osprey keep me busy snapping away. Oh, and the beach dogs, and ships, and pound nets, and the fish and rays and turtles you see (unfortunately) in them, the goldfinches, and yellow crowned night herons in the dune grass, and of course the dolphins, and our amazing skies! The shells, the pebbles, the ghost crabs, and horse shoe crabs along the shoreline... I guess you can tell that being around the Chesapeake Bay feeds my soul.
Ensure that Jeannie and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights like these. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint!
