This is the third post in my series on the necks of Somerset county.

Crisfield MD is located at the end of the Southern neck of Somerset county. Initially a small fishing village called Annemessex Neck. Later renamed Somers Cove and then about 1866, John W. Crisfield brought the Pennsylvania Railroad to Somers Cove and the quiet little fishing village began to grow. Today, Crisfield is known as the Seafood Capital of the World and it is also a major gateway to both Smith Island and Tangier Island. 

Before I arrived in Crisfield I had already visited both Deal Island and Rumbley earlier that morning so I was starting to get hungry and looking for a restaurant. As I drove through town and parked at the docks I found the Water's Edge Café which served up an outstanding breakfast. Now I was ready to grab my camera and walk around town capturing some great images of the buildings and local watermen and their workboats.
