Lighthouses of the Chesapeake region

Lighthouses – St. Clements Island, also known through the years as Blackistone Island, now is home to a rebuilt lighthouse. The original was abandoned as a lighthouse and then vandalized prior to being demolished by the Navy as target practice. The island is now a park and the lighthouse is open several times a year for visitors. A beach and pier greet visitors every day. THE CHESAPEAKE TODAY photo

All around the Chesapeake – Croakers Busting Loose!

Concentrations of sea grass can be a place where croakers stay and feed. For the most part, they move and feed as a school, but some of the larger croakers may be found in more concentrated groups.

The Wicomico River near Quade’s Store in St. Mary’s County continues to be croaker central for much of the season, but so do other locations such as waters near the Ragged Point Bar on the Virginia side of the Potomac, Cornfield Harbor just inside Point Lookout and the Patuxent River near Benedict and Sandgates.

From Brick to Boat

“Well, I’ve been collecting bricks from all over the world to build a shrine for the Blessed Mother that overlooks St. Clements Island.” said Millie.
