Photo of the Week: Winter on the Chesapeake695x352

McDaniel, Maryland, on January 7. 

The Bay has always been a part of who I am. I grew up on boats and have been to many marinas. I love interacting with the Bay through fishing, crabbing, boating, kayaking, and just observing wildlife and the environment around me.
