Chesapeake discovery

Not sure how this impacts your sailing, but since we have so many sailnetters on the Chesapeake I thought you all should know.

At least while you are out their you can contemplate the historical significance of the region.

Re: Chesapeake discovery

Some of the water here on the southern bay/elizabeth river looks older than that!

Re: Chesapeake discovery

There is a plaque in Cape Charles describing the impact crater.

This book is an interesting read on this crater, others, and the history of the Bay. I got it through the Fairfax Library.

Re: Chesapeake discovery

In my 20's I visited a friend's house in deltaville, VA. The ground well water was horribly irony and hard.
That crater/impact explains a lot about the remaining landscape & hydrology.

Re: Chesapeake discovery

why? Why?? WHY?!? to I torture myself with reading the comments below any news article?

Seriously though, that is a very interesting thought. I had never considered water getting trapped by the impact and being left to stew in it's own juices - so to say
