I’m Jim Duffy. The lady in the picture here is my wife, Jill Jasuta. We love living on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and somewhere along the line we got the notion that maybe we could help other folks to try and make the most of their time on the Delmarva Peninsula, too.
We each put our skills to use. I am a writer by trade, and so I wrote a book titled Eastern Shore Road Trips: 27 One-Day Adventures on Delmarva. That was a really fun project. Readers seemed to like it a whole lot. It did pretty darn well in sales, if I do say so myself.
And so I got to work on a second book. This one is called Tubman Travels: 32 Underground Railroad Journeys on Delmarva. There will be a third book soon, and then a fourth one … God willing.
Jill is a photographer and graphic designer, and so she set out in search of images that capture not just the beauty of the Eastern Shore, but also the spirit of the place. It’s easier to show you what I mean than to explain.
This is one of my favorites:
Here is another of my favorites:
All we’re doing, really, is trying to use our gifts to shout from the proverbial rooftop about how gorgeous this place is and how many incredible stories it has to tell and how much we love living here and wandering around. Here on this site, we share lots of pictures and stories for free. We also sell books and photo prints and greeting cards and other fun stuff.
So go ahead and roam around. Maybe you’ll run into a little story that inspires you to get out and discover something new. Maybe you’ll decide one of my books is worth a shot. Or maybe you’ll stumble into something of Jill’s–whether a big canvas photo print or a perfect little greeting card–that helps you celebrate your love for this one-of-a-kind place.
That what Secrets of the Eastern Shore is all about. Happy wandering!
