Four Seasons On Brick Kiln Road: hidden joys of a quiet place in Maryland

Patrick Costello sez,

Brick Kiln Road in Crisfield in Maryland is one of those quiet places that you can drive by a thousand times without noticing. The short stretch of road is home to a small fishing boat harbor, a public beach and not much else of consequence - but, like most small quiet places in the world, if you take the time to get to know the place there are wonders to be found.

Four Seasons on Brick Kiln Road is my humble attempt to capture the beauty of this small corner of the Chesapeake Bay. The final draft is being made freely available in the hopes of introducing people to the natural beauty of one small corner of the Chesapeake Bay.

  1. This area was one of my Grand dad’s favorite spots to fish. He took me there nearly 50 years ago a few times when I was young. The blue crabs and oysters were a real delicacy to be enjoyed. It was a sort of insular place back then but somehow my Grand dad got in with them and they accepted him as a native. It was also the home of the Ward brothers who carved birds from wood having started making duck decoys for hunters when young. Check out the The Ward Museum to see some of their amazing work. My Grand dad and the Wards were  friends and he used to visit them regularly.

      1.  But those crabs are tasty cockroaches. At least they used to be but eating stuff from the bay today is probably very dangerous due to pollutants. I even gave up shellfish along with meat many years ago for that very reason. It’s a shame the Chesapeake Bay used to be heaven on earth IMHO.
