Photo of the Week: Pure Joy

This is a photo of my daughter on Labor Day, 2014. We were on the South River, at the neighborhood beach, enjoying the last evening of summer. My neighbor, Lori, snapped this with her cell phone, and I love it!

This picture reminds me why we should all work to Save the Bay. I want my kids to be able to continue to play in the rivers and dig in the mud. I love the look of pure joy on her face.
