Welcome to my Cape St. Claire blog! I thought I'd play around with posting my thoughts, musings and observations on life in one of the Chesapeake Bay's finest communities.  We are just north of the Bay Bridge on a peninsula of land bordered by the Little Magothy River, the Chesapeake Bay, the Magothy River and Deep Creek.  My husband and I have lived here since we married in 1993 and bought our first home near Broadneck High School. In 2000, we moved a mile down the road to a place on Deep Creek.  After 17 years of married life in the Cape, we have two kids (Henry-11 and Kathryn-12 yrs), two dogs (Maggie - a 6-year old Great Dane and Laika - a 4 month-old Australian Shepherd), a cat called Dinky, and some fish to show for our time here.  To say this community is "water privileged" is a tremendous understatement.  We are fortunate to have three marinas, one boat ramp, and two lovely beaches at our disposal.  I've yet to see a community with such terrific access to the Bay.  We are truly delighted to be raising our family in such a wonderful place.

Thank you, Louise! This is exactly what I'm hoping for - that Capers will use this blog as a place to tell us what they love and would like to improve in the Cape. Send any pictures in .jpg format to You can also post them on the Cape Blogger Facebook page. I think I would be able to access them from there. Hope to see you tonight!

Unfortunately, Christy, after working in the yard all afternoon trying to clean up those damn acorns (we filled up 2 wheel barrels), I overdid it and was too exhausted to attend the meeting. I hope it was successful and a lot of Cape residents attended.

I was impressed with the Forum. I stayed through the first 3 sets of candidates. I hope to write a blog post about it in the next day or two. Rest up from the acorn gathering!
