This Is Why I Live On The Chesapeake Bay In Stevensville Maryland - July 2011
On Monday August 1 2011 the temperature felt like it broke another record only to just barely crest 91 degrees. By early evening conditions were just right for sever thundershowers. Bearing down from Baltimore, crossing the Chesapeake Bay, storms approached Stevensville Maryland. On either side of Thompson Creek storm cells passed with little rain falling between them. The sun set in the West-northwest sky. Clouds turned from blue-grey to yellow-orange. The temperature fell from 90-something to 70-something bringing welcome relief. It was a spectacular sunset on Thompson Creek in Stevensville Maryland. Rocky and I lingered on the pier catching the very last rays of the final minutes of sunset.
Fewer boats launched this year probably with gas prices being what they are and economic conditions less than stellar. Thompson Creek is shallow with 3 feet or so with more to the middle, better for small power boats than deep draft sailboats. Summer is now more than half over. The Maryland Blue Crabs have been plentiful this season while the jelly fish have been scarce. There is still plenty of time to boat, fish and swim along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, from Annapolis Maryland on the Western Shore to Stevensville Maryland on the Eastern Shore.
This is why I live on the water. This is why I call the Chesapeake Bay home. And you can too.
