Photo of the Week: The Chesapeake Is Home

IMG_2059I took this photo of the Choptank River lighthouse at sunset on October 30, 2015. The Chesapeake is home to me.  I used to work on a workboat oystering  with my husband years ago. I still fish during the spring and summer off the shores of the Bay. I learned as a young person to respect and love the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay. I love to watch the wildlife, especially the majestic bald eagles. I volunteer at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge helping to save our wildlife and waterways of the Chesapeake Bay.
