Bay Weekly's 2003 Summer Gudie
101 Ways to Have Fun on the Bay
Welcome to the long-awaited Chesapeake Bay summer of 2003. Excesses of snow and rain have made us hungry for summer in the way kids are hungry for school to end. Now, at last, schools out and summers in. In all its bounty, Chesapeake Country is calling. Will the last one left inside please turn off the lights?
If youve got your copy of Bay Weeklys Indispensable Guide to Summer on the Bay that last one wont be you.
In our 101 Ways, youll find so many things to do and places to see that youll have plenty to do even if it rains. In Bay Weeklys 10th anniversary year, weve reprised and updated many of the favorite Ways of past years. Prime among this years collection are Ways that define Chesapeake summer. Collecting and creating these Ways has reminded us that you dont have to travel far or long to spend summer in paradise. Paradise is here, waiting for us.
Mixed in with those distinctive Chesapeake Ways are Ways as universal as summer itself. Theyll enrich your season even if youre unlucky enough to leave Chesapeake Country this summer.
Behind all these Ways are 10 categories of fun:
- Seize the Day; Share the Day
- Bay by Land and Sea
- Hunt and Gather
- Lively Up Yourself
- Discover the Artist in You
- 6. See What You Can See
- Wise Up
- Take a Walk on the Wild Side
- Finally, every 10th Way is Not Just for Kids. These are our all-time favorites, and in choosing them, weve sent our censor home. When youre feeling jaded, forget your age and choose one of these Ways to have fun.
We suggest you make a pact with yourself plus friends and family to try every Way in the book. We annotate our book each year, so we can assure you theres lots of fun to be had in keeping score.
This anniversary year, were offering a prize for the best used copy of 101 Ways. To be eligible, send us your well-worn copy or a letter detailing how you had 101 pleasures this summer. Entries will be judged on the Autumnal Equinox, September 22, with the winner announced the first issue of autumn, September 25.
Summer is in your hands now.
