Where The Wild Still Is.

With three days of pretty good weather I headed out to visit some places that have been on my "get to" list in the Chesapeake. All of these places are relatively wild and remote stretches of marsh and sand. My access to these places is limited by work, weather, and opportunity. One of the reasons these places will stay wild is the viciousness of the insect life in the warmer months.

Sand bars and beaches shift with the seasons storms.

Look closely. I landed, the bird walked over, looked around on the boat,
was unimpressed, and left. Then I got out of the boat.

Heading down wind I heard heavy breathing behind me,
and was overtaken by a group of about thirty porpoises.
