From Dawn 'til Dusk

The eastern shore of Maryland, Delaware and Virginia is an amazing place to visit...steeped in history that extends back to the edge of time as we understand it, waning and waxing in prosperity as the tides of Chesapeake Bay ebb and flow. The light at this time of year is diffused with softness, as summer draws to an end, and autumn begins to glow.

The morning sky over Rehoboth Beach draws me down to the water.




And I'm still there ten hours later, to see the sun set over Chesapeake Bay, as the beach which is softly cloaked in a pastel wash gradually turns to molten bronze.









A time and a place when it is right to use epic words like grandeur and magnificent and inspiring.

Chincoteague is my hangout around Delmarva. No more beautiful place to watch the sunrise and set. Very nice.
