"Friends are the sunshine of life." ~ John Hay
Eastern Shore people are proud, hardworking people. But there is always time for going for a walk or drive at the end of the day, or taking a moment to speak to a friend - even a stranger. Yes, we work hard, but we know how to enjoy those precious parcels of time that life leaves us around like little Easter Eggs waiting to be found. Some people never see them. Around here, we know where to look.
A boater from Tangier Islands spends a few moments chatting from his boat docked at the Crisfield City dock.
We love to wave around these parts.
Ray Peterson, an employee at MeTompkin Bay Oyster Company in Crisfield, takes a break from walking his dog Bronco so that Bronco can watch a biker go by. The two were out for a leisurely afternoon stroll on the city dock. I chatted with Ray and Bronco after I had taken their photos. Bronco was sooo sweet. Even our dogs are friendly!
BTW, MeTompin has been in business since the early 1800's.
Oh, and all this friendly talk has reminded me to remind you that Crisfield's 2010, 17th annual Soft Shell Spring Fair is coming up. Won't you join us?
Admission is free - hours: 12 noon - 5 pm; Sunday, May 30. At the city dock, course.
