Day trip...



a group of us from work took a day trip to Tangier Island. The island is located 12 miles off of the coast of Virginia...right out in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. We took the ferry from Reedsville, VA....a 1 1/2 hr ferry ride. Most of the residents make their living crabbing.....
The island is 1 1/2 miles wide and 5 miles long....most of which is marshland. They have 2 grocery stores, a post office, a few places to eat and even a bed and breakfast inn. They are currently building a new medical center...and the doctor flys in once per week. The island is only accessible by plane and boat. They currently have 500 residents.









I just loved these little crab shanties!
It was a fun trip, great weather with great friends!

later......
