Eastern Neck Island
in the Winter
|Saturday January 7. 2005
|On this cold day in the month of January, with temperatures in the low thirties, fifteen kayakers arrived by ones and twos at Bogles Wharf on Eastern Neck Island. I am amazed that in this great nation of ours so many deranged people are still allowed to roam free, walk the streets and drive cars without proper supervision. To think that these people think it is perfectly normal to risk life and limb on the frigid waters of the Bay in January. Someone should report these people to the proper authorities so they can receive the care the so desperately need. As lady luck would have it, on this bright and beautiful sunny day these cold but cheerful paddlers launched into the frigid waters of the Chester River. Then headed south towards the bay with every intention of circumnavigating the Island.|

about the Island and it's wildlife.
