burn notice

it has been so dry with stiff winds for a few weeks now, and fire warnings have been issued.
this brush fire in edgewater threatened the harbor, but the winds shifted and all were spared.

clean it up

since fishing doesnt start for a couple more weeks, do your part to help the bay by joining in one of many clean up efforts in and along one of its tributaries this saturday. the alliance for the chesapeake bay needs volunteers at 150 sites...there are over 300 sites in the potomac river watershed that need cleaning...and blackwater national wildlife refuge would be a great place to do a little debris gathering outside.

boats in the hood

my boat was at jett's for the majority of the "winter", so i needed to go pick it up. imagine my surprise when i arrived at the boat yard to find 'guilty as charged' backed in next to the marine police: oh, irony!

there were some great new deadrises...
this beautiful chris craft (visiting from detroit, i guess)...
some vintage boats like this '73 jester.
 a hand carved number...
a great mathews brothers...
