omeday, I’d like to visit Tangier Island.”
We CBF staffers hear that sentiment
frequently as we travel around the
Chesapeake. A decade into the twenty-first century, people are still fascinated by
the concept of a Virginia town with modern
facilities and conveniences on an offshore
island, accessible only by boat or airplane.
Indeed, the students at the island’s excellent
K- 12 school are just as computer-savvy as folks
on the Eastern Shore’s mainland, and most of
its watermen depend on high-tech marine electronics to navigate the Bay safely and harvest
a living from it.
