The first half of my vacation is over but the memories of the Middle Peninsula on the Chesapeake Bay, the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and the beaches of Delaware keep me smiling. There is much I want to share with you but since I leave for Kentucky in the morning, I thought I would share just a few photos from our fresh crab and tuna steak shopping trip.
Aren’t the colors of those crabs vibrant? These photos are unedited; the color is true.
The fisherman working that day, saw my camera and offered to let me walk out onto this fairly rickety dock. From that vantage point I was able to photograph some of the surrounding docks.
The weather those first three days was what some might consider less than “beachy”, but for me and my friends, it did not matter.
We were happy just to be together and to explore the culture, marine life, and food that the Middle Peninsula of Virginia offers.
What an incredible place!
More photos from the coastline of Virginia and Delaware after I get back from my time on the bike! Next stop … Kentucky!
So glad you had a nice time! Now be super safe on the next leg of your journey!
Thanks Robyn. I am home safely from the second part of the vacation and am so happy to say that the “wreck monkey” is off my bike! Oh what a feeling!
Thanks a lot! Land-locked and here I am salivating at these photos! Ah well, one day I’ll get back to the east coast to partake in some great seafood!
Yes! And be sure to let me know when you head back this way and we’ll meet up for yummy food and conversation!
Gorgeous! Hope the sky brightened up a little for you, looks a little dim and rainy?
Enjoy yourself and be safe on the next half. xx
I never really did see the sun, whether on the coast or in the mountains, but I had a great time anyway!
Somehow, grey suits the coast. I’m glad you had fun without sunny skies. Those crabs are beautiful, but mostly they just make me hungry. 😉
When I was in Delaware, my friend’s son managed to catch a few crabs and they made for such a yummy appetizer 🙂 It was cloudy through out my vacation, both on the coast and in the mountains, but it was great anyway. So much fun! and I thought of you a few times … More about that later 🙂
I’m so happy you included a map! The crabs looked wonderful! Yes, be super safe on the next part of your trip.
I’m back from the biking part if the trip and am happy to say that the “wreck monkey” is off my bike! Phew! I’m also glad you liked the map; I always want to know where I am, or where others are, when traveling. I’ll include maps on the next few posts, too
Wow! Interesting to see current methods. Good to see you last night. We’re off to Charlotte tomorrow AM. Hopefully, our landline will be working when we get back Saturday night.
Best wishes to you.
Oh my … I hope that land line is working as well! So good to see you and Chuck the other night 🙂
Beautiful photos and you’ve had such nice weather! We live so close to this area and I haven’t explored much of it. Will have to get that way more often.
I am in love with the Middle Peninsula … and if it weren’t for missing the mountains, I could easily move there! The culture and history are just fascinating!
Love your photos, Laurie, xo LMA
Thank you, LMA! It’s always so great to hear from you!
Oh my, these pictures bring me back to my Broad Channel days!! Fun in the sun and great eating!!
Yes indeed! I am in love with this part of the Virginia!
Nice selection of shots. Enjoy the rest of your break.
Thank you! It’s hard to believe that my vacation is over already … but it’s been wonderful!
Yum, what else can i say 🙂
I just loved this post. Marine life is so dear to me and Tarzan. Great captures here my friend.
Thank you, Laurie!
NOW to find the time to work through all the rest of the photo 🙂
Love seeing these photos. I have no doubt we’ll spend more time on the Middle Peninsula. We were smitten! Now I see you’re in the mountains of Kentucky! Did I know this? Can’t wait to see more photos and hear all about it!
We have so much to catch up on, Ruth!! Time to get together 🙂
Great shots Laurie and those crabs look awesome 🙂
