Fresh from the Bay

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!

    • 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!

    • 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 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

  1. 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.

    • 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!

  2. 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!
