It’s been a cold, windy and rainy day today. But it didn’t stop my friend and I to head over to the Eastern Shore of Maryland to Kent Island
A small island that is crossed by many traveling to the beach and is quickly missed. An island that was completely immersed during Hurricane Isabel in 2003 with boats flung from the high winds onto the roads. An island important in history, founded in 1631 and is the third oldest English settlement in the United States.
Because of its location on the Chesapeake Bay. Kent Narrows is a resting point for many Chesapeake Bay watermen. Their boats docked due to foul weather. All the ready to be taken out on a slightly better day. There were still a few brave souls that were seen traveling on the water, fighting the wind and the rain.
Stopping at the marina to capture a few images, the rain was relentless rain drops landing on my lens quickly chasing me back into my warm car.
Alas, as I’ve been doing so much bird photography, and the settings are completely different from my other shooting, I discovered that the 19-point autofocus system is still on the fritz. Another trip to the Canon doctor is in order.
Hope your day was better than mine. Happy Memorial Weekend!
