Gwynn’s Island is an island located in the Chesapeake Bay on Virginia’s Middle Peninsula. Just drive over this drawbridge and you are there.
Hopefully, you’ve seen my post Fresh From the Bay. This small community lives and loves the marine life. I’ve included this photo (credit the Gwynn’s Island Museum) because it offers such a great view of the island.
The Chesapeake Bay is a fragile economy and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the largest conservation organization dedicated solely to saving the Chesapeake Bay, has a mission to reduce pollution, improve fisheries, and to protect and restore natural resources such as wetlands, forests, and underwater grasses.
Before heading off to the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and to Delaware, I wanted to share a few more images from 3 lovely days on this Island.
I hope you’ll find time to visit the Middle Peninsula someday … it really is worth the trip!
(You may be wondering why some of these images are watermarked and others are not … just a little Lightroom trouble today)
