Shawn bought a poster that showed the locations of all the shipwrecks in the Chesapeake Bay at Kent Island Days.

He couldn't wait to use his new-found knowledge to play with his side-scan sonar.

This is sonar image of the Herbert D. Maxwell, a schooner that collided with a steamer in 1910 and sank not far from Sandy Point. Shawn writes about it here on his website. Definitely worth a read.

Os vs. Nats

Shawn went to see the Nats play the O's this afternoon in Baltimore. Thanks to Rich, he had primo seats! Too bad the Nats lost.

What the Festival-Goers Saw...

.... when they walked down East Main Street on the way to Kent Island Days.

Shawn and I worked overtime to get our yard in shape for Kent Island's big day.

Kent Island Days

Crockett meets another Chessie at Kent Island Days & has something to say about it!

The other puppy was not impressed.

Kent Island Days takes over "downtown" Stevensville.

They close the streets and let the Historical Society, vendors, reenactors, authors, food carts, singers, dancers, and pretty much anyone who asks, set up a table.

We've learned a lot about the history of the Eastern Shore, Kent Island, Stevensville, and our house at this festival.

All the old-timers have stories, and when they find out that we live in "Number 4" on the walking tour, they can't wait to share another historical tidbit with us.

One of these days, we'll join the society, dress up in Colonial garb, and man our own booth at Kent Island Days!

Kent Island Days Parade

And the 2011 parade season in downtown Stevensville has begun - today was the parade in honor of Kent Island Days. We watched from the front porch.

Ducks at the Metro

Shawn took the Metro into work today, and was greeted by a family of ducks at the New Carrolton Station.
