Now You See It, Now You Don’t

Dear Bay Weekly:

How time flies by. Nothing shows the passage of time like physical changes. 

I read that the last house on Holland Island has fallen into the Bay. This was the same island we used as the stopping-off location for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation kayak trips with Don Baugh and Tom Horton. It was my first trip into the Bay, and I also wrote about my experiences Up Close and Personal for my first Bay Weekly story [Aug. 16, 2001].

Now I am amazed to see the whole island gone. Nothing but the debris of the old house is left. The time we spent there and memories of the history of that island are now like a dream. What a clear indicator of change!
