An Eastport Moment - No.1

Wind power, motor power, or muscle power…take your pick.

All seem to be enjoying themselves on this splendid sunny Sunday afternoon in early autumn.

    If only I weren‘t such a geographical idiot.... which state is this? Maryland or Maine?
    The sea is a wonderful colour but probably too cool for a dip.

      Hello, Lucy, and thanks for your comment. Happy to answer your question - This Eastport is in Maryland. It was once a separate town, across Spa Creek from Annapolis, but later became part of that city, the capital of Maryland. While I can't tell you just how chilly the water was on this autumn-perfect afternoon, I can tell you the view, across the broad Severn River into Chesapeake Bay was limitless. I'll post some other photos from this vantage point that show not only sailboats and other pleasure craft, but even a huge bulk carrier heading down the Bay from the Port of Baltimore toward open seas. Alles Gute. Steve
