SWF>>>>Sunset on the bay

For my Skywatch Friday I have sunset photos from our cruise to Bermuda. We enjoyed the sunset on the Chesapeake Bay on the first night of the cruise from Baltimore to Bermuda.




The Cheseapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States and approximately 200 miles long. It lies off the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by Maryland and Virginia. Noted for its beauty it does have environmental issues like over fishing and crabbing.






I hope you enjoyed my sunset on the Chesapeake Bay and
 to see more beautiful skies from around the world please visit Skywatch Friday.  Thanks to the hosting group: Sylvia, Wren, Sandy and Klaus.

Also, thanks for stopping by to visit with me and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
