CHESAPEAKE

A ship, like a human being, moves best when is slightly athwart the wind, when it has to keep its sails tight and attend its course. Ships, like men, do poorly when the wind is directly behind, pushing them sloppily on their way so that no care is required in steering or in the management of sails; the wind seems favorable, for it blows in the direction one is heading, but actually it is destructive because it induces a relaxation in tension and skill. What is needed is a wind slightly opposed to the ship, for then tension can be maintained, and juices flow and ideas can germinate, for ships, like men, respond to challenge. James Michener’s “Chesapeake”

CHESAPEAKE BAY ~ ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST TREASURED NATURAL WATERWAYS.

Chesapeake Bay – Approximately 800 miles north of the Florida coast and an equal distance south of Casco Bay, Maine, lays one of the largest watershed basins in the United States: the Chesapeake Bay, child of the “mother of waters”. The bay is 200 miles long and its watershed includes six states. With over 5,600 miles of shoreline, 46 principle rivers, and countless creeks, the Chesapeake Bay is the largest inland body of water on the East Coast. Snug harbors and cozy coves provide vast opportunities for exploration and adventure. For the mariner searching for a boater’s paradise, where the seasons are long and the weather mild, the Chesapeake Bay should be at the top of the list. The water provides a center for travel, commerce and leisure, home to many species of wildlife, and a great natural resource. Captain John Smith described the Chesapeake Bay - “a faire bay…heaven and earth never agreed better to frame a place for man’s habitation”.

MARYLAND’S EASTERN SHORE LIFESTYLE
Full Time ~ Part Time ~ Any Time

The Upscale Lifestyle of Eastern Shore Living is here when you want it, but it’s just one small part of the story. Give or take the opening of a fancy new restaurant or boutique or art gallery a short walk from the old hardware store ~ most of us go to Chesapeake Country for the same reasons people have been going to “The Shore” for a century.

Because it’s several degrees cooler, and the scent of salt is in the air. Because a walk along shore, a boat ride on the creek, a great sunrise can turn around a bad mood. Because the dogs look forward to running free all week. Because every year the waterfowl raise their broods in full view on local waters, while we watch and fret for months whether they’ll all make it to adulthood. In the early morning, when the sky lightens to lavender and pink, enjoy your coffee and read your paper ~ at dusk, watch herds of deer wander along the river. Because you can lose yourself in cooking a meal for an entire day, and it’s always a thrill to buy fresh produce at a farm stand, seafood from the locals, or pick you own home grown spices and flowers.

Because there’s no better place to make memories for a child. A place of the heart where family bonds are strengthed and deepened. Where parents teach daughters and sons to fish and read the stars. Where life’s lessons are passed from one generation to the next. The Eastern Shore and family go together. They are one and the same. Works of nature. Created from love. And made to last forever.

Because The Eastern Shore is simple, uncomplicated joy. Of holding hands. Of sharing stories. Of watching sunlight dance on water. Where the spirit of nature reaches into our souls and makes us whole. A world where we rediscover our profound love for one another. It's a sanctuary from everyday life and a return to what we were meant to be. But most of all, because we all feel looser and more creative and more like our “real” selves out there. That is what Shore Life or Chesapeake Lifestyle is all about.


CHESAPEAKE BAY ~ "GREAT SHELLFISH BAY"


“And so, in the middle of the Chesapeake…he turned his log canoe not to the turbulent western shore…but to the quieter eastern shore, and that simple choice made all the difference.” James A. Michener, Chesapeake

ITS THE LIFESTYLE










THE SHORE
Whether coming from the western shore in Virginia or Maryland or from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other northern points there is usually some geographic marker where you breathe a sigh of relief thereby announcing you are at "the Shore". You can see it with the deep breathes fellow travelers take when they cross the Bay Bridge or Delaware Memorial Bridge. There is literally a physical reaction many of us have when the brackish scent of the Bay or the combination of sea and salt fills our nostrils. We relax, our muscles loosen, our smiles come easier and memories are made. So what prompts these physical reactions and contribute to the memories.
But Lifestyle can be an all-encompassing phrase. It covers not just how we live in our homes and with our families but the level of services, recreation and amenities we require and desire and the ease of access and affordability of all of the above. While the ready-made recreation offers at the Shore establishes the foundation of the Lifestyle we desire, the recent growth in local retail and services builds on the basics. Full time living at the Shore is no longer a dream but an easy reality.

THE SEASONS OF THE EASTERN SHORE ~ WINTER ~ SPRING ~ SUMMER ~ FALL
























WINTER ~ I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show. Andrew Wyeth
















SPRING ~ It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! Mark Twain
















SUMMER ~ Then followed that beautiful season.............. Summer....filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
















FALL ~ Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. Albert Camus
