Kent Island

Kent Island Marina

I've had a long running love affair with the open waters of the Mid Atlantic Region, and everywhere for that matter. It's one of my favorite pastimes and a place I can often be found during the Spring and Summer seasons. Practically every river or creek in this area leads out to the Chesapeake Bay and it's 64,000 square miles of salt water that empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Okay, you get the idea, I'm a bit of a salty dog. :-)

Today I'll share a small corner of this water world, the northwest corner of a marina on Kent Island. This is a hot spot for fisherman, crabbers and watermen who earn their living on the bounty of the sea.

Enjoy!

In today's post we have a look at a repurposed boat, now resting in a decorative landscape scene complete with buoy. I nearly passed up this shot since it was such a gray, drab day but was encouraged by the colorful Crepe Myrtles, flowers and ornamental grass. I came upon this on Kent Island, the largest island on the Chesapeake Bay. Having taken a look inside the boat, I can attest that it would sink faster than an anchor were it ever to be placed back into the water. :-) It's and old wooden boat that likely has lots of memories attached.

Enjoy and thank for visiting!
