Bits and pieces from around the region

In St. Michaels, one of my favorite towns on Delmarva, we stopped at the Crab Claw to eat a few hardshells. Tied up along the waterfront was this rig - a first for me.  About 24 feet long with four 300-HP Mercs bolted to the stern.  A crew member told me the runabout was a tender vessel for a 140-foot yacht that stayed behind in Annapolis.  "How long did it take you guys to get here," I asked.  "About 20 minutes," he said.  (It took us 90 minutes.) "How fast were you going?"  "We sat right on 40."  I didn't ask the next question which would have been:  "How much fuel?"  Exxon loves these people. BY DENNIS FORNEY

I keep a collection of photographs going until I can write a blog about them or put them together for a poo poo platter of images.  These are from the past few weeks.  Some of them were made while we were touring the upper Chesapeake Bay in mid-August.  Others came from wanderings around Delaware's Cape Region.
