Photo of the Week: Quiet Corners of the Bay

Winter in Worton

I took this picture [mid-February] when I went to check on our boat in the water of Worton Creek. I liked how the snow had covered individual dock boards, and how the black and white image portrayed a cold winter's day on the iced-over creek. 

I have sailed on and enjoyed the Chesapeake Bay since 1975. I look forward to my time on the Bay for its natural beauty, the seafood, of course, and the pace of life to be found there. Long Reach was built in Oxford and is at home on the Bay. We hope to enjoy her for many years, seeking out those quiet corners of the Bay that we have not yet experienced.
