Deep Water, Deep Past (November 05)
Deep, dark and still mysterious, the Chickahominy River reveals itself as a beautiful and isolated tributary of the James River. No wonder John Smith liked it.

In the Company of Pirates (May 06)
In which our heroes, in the guise of bawdy balladeers, advance on Hampton, Va., in time to witness the defeat of nefarious and sundry pirates, buy T-shirts and crash one helluva a dock party.

Land's End (Feb. 05)
There's more water than land on the point that marks the northern tip of Virginia's Mobjack Bay, and that's just how the folks who live there like it.

It was billed as a holiday tour of homes on the Little Wicomico River, but just cruising on the boats that

Luck of the Irish (August 06)
It's easy to visit Kinsale; but beware, this little town on Virginia's Yeocomico River is the kind that makes you want to stay for good.

Magothy in the Middle (June 04)
Wedged between the controlled chaos of Baltimore and Annapolis, this river isn't the most chic, the most scenic . . . or the most anything. It's just a lot of good things to a lot of good people.

The Eastern Shore retreats of Betterton and Tolchester Beach rose and fell with the Bay’s steamboats. One survived and one didn’t.

Yorktown by the Sea (June 06)
A jazzed up waterfront "village" and a spiffy new transient marina offer boaters a chance to get up close and personal with the town that ended a war and began a nation.
