Photo of the Week: The Bay in Winter

I've grown up seeing the Bay every day of my life. Whether I'm swimming in it, sailing on it, or just walking along its shores, I've always felt the most comfortable around the water, and I can't imagine living somewhere without water nearby. To me, the Bay means home, and I think looking out over the Chesapeake and watching the sun rise over the horizon have helped put my world into perspective. The Bay makes me feel limitless, just like the seemingly endless expanse of water I see every morning.
