Tales of the Lost Ark »
In the days before internal combustion, it was impossible for Bay
watermen to commute to distant fishing grounds every day. So they
brought along their own small, homemade floating homes. Senior editor
Jody Argo Scroath takes us back to the days of the fishing ark, or ark
village, once a common sight on the shores of the Bay.
The Man Who Loved Gwynn's Island »
Smitten with Virginia's Gwynn's Island at an early age, naturalist and
author Gilbert Klingel made the island his home base for exploring and
writing about the Bay's natural wonders. In the 1960s he moved there
for good, says Lynn Teo Simarski, and made a name for himself in yet
another field: steel-hull boatbuilding.
From the Editor
Mr. Klingel » It's not on everyone's list of great books about the
Chesapeake, but it should be. We suggest that you run, not walk, to the
nearest library (or computer) and get yourself a copy of Gilbert C.
Klingel's 1951 gem, The Bay. Read this article »

only mere minutes from her own boat, White Point Marina was far enough
away for Jody Argo Schroath to take a well deserved breather from the
