I took this photo from my dock, at the point where the Corrotoman River empties into the Rappahannock this past Saturday evening.
The Bay is alive, and on any given day her temperament can be docile for hours, followed without any warning by a swift change in mood as the tides turn, evoking turbulent waters, churning with rays and menhaden.
For us the Bay evokes a deep respect, and serves as a daily reminder that life is fluid and unpredictable, and above all, to be enjoyed.
Ensure that Amber and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint—the federal/state plan to Save the Bay!
