"I took the photo of the floats in July of this year as I walked around Ewell, Smith Island. I was in the process of adding to my inventory of photos for an upcoming Chesapeake Bay photography book and knew that I had to capture them. I'd come across floats for 40 years, but never in a pile of this size.
I've been away from the Bay now for a few months (moved recently to South Carolina), and I keep having pangs of withdrawal as I run into pictures of the Bay from time to time. I plan to visit at least once a year as we still have good friends in Tilghman, Maryland."
