Sitting on the Dock of the Bay

Dear Bay Weekly:


In “What’s with That” on January 13, Diana Beechener writes “it’s too cold for even a native Marylander to sit on a pier right now.” I beg to differ. After our afternoon walk, which usually lasts for an hour to an hour and a half, my dog and I go out on the pier, where he enjoys several treats while I have a beer and contemplate the universe. We live just south of Holland Point where Herring Bay meets the Chesapeake. Rain is about the only thing that disrupts our pier sitting.
