  • Photo of the Week: Palace Bar Reef

    November 7, 2017

    This was taken at Palace Bar Reef, a sanctuary oyster reef where CBF planted 300 reef balls between 2010 and 2012. It’s now become a favorite fishing spot on Virginia’s Piankatank River. The ripples you see in the photo are bait fish, which attract bigger fish.

  • Photo of the Week: Chesapeake Sunset

    October 31, 2017

    I am a volunteer for the Annapolis Maritime Museum and welcome visitors from all over the world who come to see the Chesapeake Bay, hear stories of watermen, and visit the Naval Academy. I am a Navy Sailor and wherever I travel, the Chesapeake Bay will always be home.

    I've been a Chesapeake Bay transplant for two years now and am lucky to not only own part of some protected land, but live close enough to enjoy the beach and all it has to offer.
