It's official: Blog Fest 2010 will be held from Thursday, July 15, through Sunday morning, July 18th.

What: Blog Fest 2010, a weekend of
When: Thursday, July 15 - Sunday, July 18
Where: Mathews County, Virginia. Chesapeake Bay Woman's house is
Who: Anyone is invited. If we receive an overwhelming response, which I do not anticipate, we will establish a limit. This is highly unlikely, though.
What to expect: I don't know. Anything. Everything. Nothing at all. Last year, we toured Mathews' beaches; meandered around the village; ate at some local restaurants; went on a work boat tour of the lighthouse; and spent a magical evening on a Gwynn's Island beach.
I am open to suggestions on activities but think we will kick off the same as last year with a cookout at my house Thursday night. The other two days will likely include some sight seeing, a boat ride, perhaps a trip to the Gwynn's Island Museum, perhaps a tour of a local historic home, and free time - especially for those who attended last year and have seen many of the key sights already.
As Big Hair Envy--my co-host and partner in crime--and I iron out the details, we'll let you know. Until then, you can e-mail me with any questions @ ChesapeakeBayWoman@gmail.com.
If you are interested in attending, please leave a comment and send me an e-mail. Include your name, where you're coming from, mode of transportation and any other relevant information. I can send you information on lodging, although there is plenty of room at my house and in my yard (for campers). Because commercial lodging is very limited, the sooner you make your reservations the better.
For detailed information about Mathews County, visit the county tourism site by clicking here. There you'll find links to things to do and places to stay. Last year, one group stayed at a B&B and another group booked a cottage on the North River. Everyone else stayed at my house.
There are no hotels or motels in the county. No Starbucks either. We do have fiddler crabs, jungle-like humidity and lots of crazy characters running around here, present company included.
Looking forward to another fun-filled event. Hope to see you there.
