The Eastern Shore is where agriculture meets estuary meets the seashore. Itís where down-to-earth rural communities, bustling tourist meccas and a NASA portal to orbit all co-exist, sometimes quietly, but sometimes with a fair bit of fireworks. And thatís before we consider the explosive rocket launches.
Itís picturesque, itís challenging and itís your beat if youíre the next photographer/videographer for DelmarvaNow.com, the premiere news site covering the Delmarva Peninsula, including Delaware, Maryland and Virginia coastal and Chesapeake Bay communities.
