We are in a scenic small private sub division that is a mere 200 yard walk to Wenona harbor which is equipped with modern docks and double boat ramp maintained by Somerset County.
Wenona is a tiny old charm fishing village located on the southern tip of Deal Island. Home to 35 boat captains . Main catch are crab and oysters. Also, charter fishing trips. This is Tangier Sound country. Not a tourist destination. This is where you truly get away from it all.
Also home to Arby's. A half general store and half bar-n-grill. A must visit.
WHAT to do:
Hmmm. Well that is up to you. Activity feedback from prior guests varies.
Some guests read, others walk, maybe birdwatch or bike. Of course fishing, motor boating, kayak paddling, canoe paddling, crabbing and waterfowl hunting are main staples of activity as well as enjoying some quality time sunbathing and sea shell collecting on Deal Island beach.
The owners top 3 activities.
1. Short 5 minute kayak paddle to the back side of Little Deal Island where I harvest a couple dozen muscles that 5 to 6 hrs later will be the main ingredient of my wife's linguine dish in a red sauce. Yummy!
2. Walking over to Arby's Bar-n-Grill on the harbor before sunrise. "Arb" always has coffee on and serve up a variety of breakfast sandwiches The sunrise from Arby's picture window is awesome. spend time talking with the boat captains and locals .
3. A great destination for Eastern Shore Bird watching. Ospreys and eagles are supreme, that said; my favorite bird activity..watching.the belted kingfisher beak snag his fish meal of the day!
ABOUT Deal Island, Maryland:
