This was a great program if you are interested in lighthouses and seeing them on the Chesaapeake Bay. Some we saw from the land and some we saw from the bay on two boat rides. Diane, the program leader shared her love of the lights and the Calvert Marine Museum was a great base for our program. At the end of the week we took a sailboat ride on the Bay.

If you like lighthouses, this is the trip for you! We visited about a dozen lighthouses, going into a few, ate at great restaurants, behind the scenes museum tours, and exploring beautiful Chesapeake Bay! I highly recommend it!!

We found chasing lighthouses and eating wonderful seafood while becoming acquainted with this part of the Chesapeake Bay area to be a super five day break...good weather most of the time helped, too!

The light house tour of the Chesapeake Bay and our leaders were more than I had anticipated. The biggest treat was the two plus days on the water. We also had the short sail on a Skipjack, a type of crabber used in the Bay. Volunteers from our group heaving to hoist the sails. We also had the opportunity to approach the Chesapeake Bat Bridge from the water to get an astounding view. One of our leaders, Diane, taught the group to "pick" a crab to find the sweetest meat. This trip was a winner.

If you like lighthouses, being on the water (2 full days on Chesapeake Bay), and great seafood, you'll love this program. Beautifully run, and small group of 20 makes it easy to get to know and interact with other participants. An in-depth tour of the Maryland Archeological Conservation Laboratory is a special treat. Highly recommend, and would do again.
