The little things

Marsh periwinkle

If we were having coffee: Salmagundi edition

Crisfield dock.
If you’ve got something to crab about, cross the line and do it there.  I’ll be happy to join you.  The view is amazing, and usually the only crabbing I do around that sort of view involves dropping a line in the water and throwing back whatever I catch.

In the quiet times we know that we are blessed
And we will not be alone

~ Dar Williams
