Contemporary Residences Along an Eastport Shoreline

Back Creek Shoreline Houses on a Cloudy Morning in Annapolis Maryland June 15th 2017

It seems that when I find myself walking along the shorelines of Eastport these days I often catch sight of a new contemporary house having been erected, or that a 50 or 60 year old frame cottage has been transformed, read demolished, into a proverbial McMansion with Hardie Plank siding. Alas Annapolis is no exception to the fact that waterfront property is a scarce commodity that commands a high price as well.

I was paddling my kayak back and forth along the creek earlier in an attempt to arrive at the best spot in which to photograph these two shoreline contemporary houses. As I was doing so I began thinking how years ago this was for the most part an unimproved shoreline, sans rip rap and recreational boat lifts, although with perhaps a small frame house no larger than a shed. It was also here along the shoreline where locals would crab, oyster and fish, in some cases in boats that they built themselves. Also back then the nearby McNasby Seafood and Oyster Company operated as a vibrant part of the then Eastport economic triad while hard working locals made their seasonal lively hood from the waters both here on Back Creek and the close by Severn River.

Over times things change, which is inevitable, however that itself does not make it progress by any means.

Have a pleasant day,

Glenn
