Tied to the Water

The trip starts near the southern tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, which points directly toward Virginia Beach. The Chesapeake Bay laps the land's west-side marshes, while the Atlantic rushes its east-side beaches. Up and down this skinny strip, small villages are anchored by mom-and-pop marinas, and the landscape features a patchwork of marsh grasses. The people here swear by the stretch of the shore.
