Last House on Holland Island, May 2010

    Newer Older

    The winter storms early in 2010 took a severe toll on this proud remnant of another century and another way of life. The brick skirting around the foundation has been washed away and the entire foundation on the right (south) side is gone. Both nor'easters, which can raise the bay level by two feet and kick up waves of five feet, and extreme spring tides will flood the first floor.

      Oh, I just love this photograph. The birds look strangely out of proportion, or maybe it's the house. I just read in the Baltimore Sun that this house has finally washed away too.
