Upon our return from a few days of SC family time, we were greeted back in MD with furnace-like temperatures. The setting sun continued to blaze as we exited our plane at BWI. Let's hope this flaming sky does not portend another round of wicked weather. We have had our share.

Delivering our baby oysters to the Magothy River oyster reef. We were not in any hurry this year since none of the baby oysters survived the year hanging off of our dock. The storms that drenched the area last year - Irene and Lee - inundated the upper Chesapeake Bay with fresh water and polluted runoff, and as a result, the oyster population north of the Bay Bridge was decimated.
We were asked to deliver our host oyster shells to the designated location anyway to help establish the reef. We were happy to oblige with a quick ride out to the red buoy. These guys are now sitting at the bottom of the Magothy waiting for our Bay oysters to recover.

We enjoyed some really spectacular fireworks tonight in South Carolina, but the most amazing thing we saw was the full moon rising over the Atlantic across the inlet. I have to believe it was just as stunning in Cape St. Claire.
Happy 4th of July, Capers. Thinking about all my neighbors who are still without power. Wishing you cool breezes and a July 5th with electricity.
