As much of the country battles the latest polar vortex brought on by a blast of Arctic air, it’s easy to daydream about summer’s inevitable arrival. Maryland’s sprawling, peaceful Chesapeake Bay is, of course, best known for its many marinas and sailing communities. Thus, the Osprey Point team would like to shine a light on three Maryland sailing charters, all of which are located right here in Rock Hall, the “Pearl of the Chesapeake.”
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Where did the time go? We couldn’t think of a better reason to get away and wholly celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend than the fact that we just endured 2020. There has never been a better time to embrace winter’s arrival than today, especially for those who aren’t afraid of a little snowfall. After all, “the month of love” wouldn’t be the same without a healthy dose of outdoor exploration amid a winter wonderland, such as Maryland’s 2,300-acre Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge.
