A Chesapeake Waterman in Southern Maryland

WatermanDeep in Southern Maryland where the only jobs until the recent housing boom of the past decade were farming and fishing is a reminder of the past. This statue of A Chesapeake Waterman seeking crabs and oysters is a reminder of the old days.

The statue is part of Annemarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center in Solomons, Md. Basically, follow Rt. 4 (Pennsylvania Ave. East) until you nearly reach the water and on the left is this 30-acre oasis dedicated to the arts amid the tall pines. They teach and inspire about any type of art imaginable. One of these days I’m going to take a stained glass class.

Meanwhile, the waterman reminds us of the past.
