This is perhaps the best sunset photo I took last year, and I take them every time they are in front of my eyes.
We have a condo at this very spot in Crisfield, Maryland. This is the southern tip of Janes Island, marked by the standing chimney from a burnt down fish-rendering fertilizer factory that was there once upon a time, way off on the distant shore.
Our time on land and water since buying this condo five years ago, has been so enriching and joyful. Between the two of us, husband and wife, we have checked off the boxes of shallow water fishing the area as well as bird watching and beach combing discoveries.
This area is truly the jewel of the Chesapeake Bay.
Ensure that Maggie and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights and places like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint—the plan to Save the Bay and its waters!
