We enjoyed a visit to the SERC this week while on a short week's cruise. The Rhode is a favorite spot we have visited for all the years we have had vessels.

We used to visit an interesting family friend who lived on Corn Island. They had a very large family and a colorful past so spending time with them was a treat. Ernie Corey had fought in the 10th Mountain Division in WWII and he always had a good story. He had deeded his home to the Smithsonian with ability to live there for his (and his lovely wife, Ann) remaining days.

Their large home sits up in the trees overlooking Big Island. They are sadly gone and the SERC counts it in their 2000 some acres.

You can visit the center via boat if you come by dink or car. There are many walking trails. Clearly school children visit and learn about this amazing estuary. The Reed education Center is open for learning about the flora and fauna of the area.

They are open 9 to 4:30 daily Tuesday thru Saturday. There may be a shorter schedule for Sundays. If you enjoy a variety of activities consider a stop at the center.

We were just there on Tuesday morning ourselves. The Rhode is one of or favorite western shore anchorages and SERC is always a must see shore side destination. It's one of the better kept secrets of the Chesapeake.
