One Response to Chesapeake

    Dear Al and Julie, It looks as though you two should get home soon. Al (I assume that is Al in the red striped attire) is wasting away. Before you leave you should have a crab meal and look up where Chars family is from. Maybe you could experience a crabing adventure. Again I look forward to hearing about your adventures. I don’t think I have been in the Chesapeake area. (Sounds like a road trip in my future.) Bye for now and have a great Memorial Day.
