Following the success of the award winning documentary “Journey on the Chesapeake”, and after requests from PBS and the public for more of the series, we are now in the planning stages of the next episode. This time we will be focusing on the area from the York River down to the James River and featuring Poquoson, Buckroe, Hampton, and even a little bit of the Williamsburg culinary scene as it pertains to using local seafood from the Chesapeake Bay. 

                We are now beginning the process of securing sponsors / underwriters for the film, so if you are interested in being a part of this film, please send an email to : We are also going to be looking at potential site locations in the area, so if you live there and now of something or someone that has something to do with seafood, cuisine, or history that we should include to tell the story of the area, please email and let me  know. We want to capture what this area is all about, and you all are the experts!
