I took this photo on a nesting island just over the Virginia border south of Tylerton, Smith Island. [It serves as] a nesting ground for seagulls, cormorants, and pelicans. To me, the Chesapeake Bay is an ever-changing wonderland, rich in wildlife, history, and pride among the people that call it home. The Bay sustains life, despite the storms that challenge it each year. The Bay is one of my favorite places in the world!
Ensure that Brooke and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights like these. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint!
