Taken away with the Dragon Run
imageI push off from shore, breaking gravity’s grip. A thin layer of water floats me away from reality and into a magical world that humans can only visit. The instant my kayak floats, I know I am “there.” It‘s a feeling of freedom from the land and the problems that stay on shore. The lazy river takes over. I fall under the spell of the Dragon Run.

Welcome to Deltaville
imageIn 1909 the U.S. Postal Service accepted a local recommendation to change the name of a Chesapeake Bay community, and Sandy Bottom became Deltaville. Deltaville’s history, however, goes back much further than 100 years. In 1608, the year after Jamestown was settled, a group of English explorers led by Captain John Smith came upon the community while exploring the tributaries of the Bay.


History on the loose: Washington’s birthplace
imageLore holds that, at the age of 26, George Washington’s great-grandfather John Washington washed up on the shores of the Northern Neck after a merchant ship he was on foundered in the Potomac River in 1657. He was taken in by wealthy planter Nathanial Pope.
