“Schaefer's Canal House is within a very short walk from the cottage... it is also our favorite restaurant in Chesapeake City. The cottage is also where the Schaefer family used to make their famous crab cakes. The recipe was top-secret with only family allowed in the cottage while they were made. ”

Premise
“The Turkey Point Light is a historic lighthouse at the head of the Chesapeake Bay. Although only a 35-foot (11 m) tower, the 100-foot (30 m) height of the bluffs on which it stands makes it the third highest light off the water in the bay. It is also known for the large number of women who served as lightkeeper: four of the ten known keepers, serving 89 of the 115 years the light was manned”
