Tangier Island

Located in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, it is rich in the history of the watermen.









 Home to some 500 persons speaking a very distinct dialect, with narrow fence lined streets ...




...and even narrower watery passages. 



And to visit the graves of the dearly departed, one need only to step into the backyard.




Or the front yard...

Now, I am jealous of you and your trip. I have never been here, but have always wanted to go. Now I really want to go. Love the cemetery scene. It is definitely one of a kind. Your pictures really tell the story well. genie
