On the Water 4

Boats of all sorts.  Big and small.  Short and tall.

On the Water 3

We explored the creek in Jim's boat over on 9/6.  I enjoyed stopping to see lots of birds and we visited lots of coves.  These were my favorite shots.

Church Point Restoration

This post was so popular on Facebook that I thought I should share it on my blog as well.

Recently, work was completed at Church Point in St. Mary's City, MD to protect the large cross and stop the erosion from reducing the shoreline.    Many people both from Trinity Episcopal Church and elsewhere, assisted in reaching this goal.  A grant was written, workers hired, politicians, businesses and students helped.  

Recently,  sea grass was planted there by volunteers, including hundreds of St. Mary's College of MD students.

Church Point is on the property of Trinity Episcopal Church in St. Mary's City, MD and has long been popular for fishing, picnicing and walking.

Here are a few before and after photos.
