Having pristine places to visit should always be a priority for the states nestled along the Chesapeake Bay. I'm always pleased that a couple of my favorite places in Northumberland County, Virginia, are rather free of human effects over many visits spanning the 3 years since I discovered them. Not spotless, but honestly, something is going right with keeping our Bay clean. One mile of shoreline yesterday had only 5 pieces of trash flotsam to pick up. Some beautiful new driftwood additions and the gorgeous healthy sand dunes should encourage you to go visit sometime soon.
Ensure that Bob 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!
