This leisurely journey around an island along the Eastern Shore presents the opportunity to see bald eagles, osprey, blue herons, and turtles. For years I’ve wanted to do the Wye Island Regatta, a 13.1-mile race around the beautiful Wye Island. Wye Island is located off Maryland’s Eastern Shore and is made up primarily of the Wye Island Natural Resources Management Area. Finally, after several years of schedule conflicts on race weekend, I decided to just go ahead and not do the race, instead circumnavigating the island with my husband. Wye Island is located about 25 minutes south of the Bay Bridge, near Wye Mills.
