A Tribute to Veterans

The actual Memorial Day is on May 30th, for fallen veterans of all wars who did not return home safely. This cap was placed by a family member at a nearby cemetery.

Calm Before the Storm

Last night brought rain, lightning, wind and thunder. This photo was the bright spot before it got nasty in Crisfield.

Skipper watch

My cat is on patrol, watching out for pigeons and birds. He is having such a good time.

My favorite

Oysters on the Half Shell. Yuuum!

Father and Son

It is nice to see a dad and son enjoying a day together. The young man in the red cap is a Marine and has recently returned from Iraq.

Painting of The Captain Woods Buy Boat

Here she is in her glory. In the day of old when the Buy Boats were plentiful along with the Skip Jacks, their presence meant long days on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Work boats would come along side of these wonderful vessels to off load their bountiful catch of the day, then go back to harvesting again.

Like the Skip Jacks, the Buy Boat can be found in just a few places with numbers less than a dozen. Seeing one is a treat to be remembered for a life time.

Buy Boat "The Delvin K."

Much to my surprise last week, there was another Buy boat anchored at the Crisfield County dock. I could not resist to get a shot of her before she steamed out into the Tangier Sound and off into the sunset.
