Manhattan Meets Mathews
This past weekend, a very diverse group of women--most of whom had never seen each other IRL (in real life) --met in Mathews County for 3 days of activities.
The photo above was from Saturday, my favorite day of Blog Fest.
It all started with a ride on a work boat from Davis Creek out to the New Point Comfort lighthouse. Ann Marie and her husband so generously provided this tour and even arranged for porpoises to frolic right along side the boat at the mouth of the creek.
The paying job will demand my focus and attention for the next several days but I'll share pictures and stories about our incredible gathering as time permits throughout the week.
In the mean time, please click on the links below which belong to some of the most talented writers, photographers and human beings I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.
To the lovely ladies below, thank you for visiting Mathews, and please don't be a stranger. You know the way now, so you have to come back.

To Anonymous Mathews Native and her family - Thanks so very much not only for the ham biscuits but for sharing a lady who is overflowing with knowledge and stories about the way Mathews used to be.
Thanks to everyone else who attended and/or otherwise supported this incredible event. It takes a village, or in this case a county.
