The South River flows for 10 miles before entering Maryland’s treasured Chesapeake Bay. Along the way, the gentle waves of the tributary lap against its sandy shores. The subtle sounds of tumbling sand and tiny bursting bubbles shape these moments on a sunny afternoon in a park called Quiet Waters.

Thank you for sharing in these sounds of the South River with me.

What defines the South River as a tributary? According to National Geographic, “A tributary is a freshwater stream that feeds into a larger stream, river or other body of water. The larger, or parent, river is called the mainstem,” which is the Chesapeake Bay in this case.

Have you heard about the lost colonial town of the South River? Wikipedia reveals “a ‘lost town’ called London Town (also known as Londontowne or Londontown) [that] was established on the south shore of the river in 1683, and was once the county seat and a major port.” The site is now the home of the Historic London Town and Gardens, “a twenty-three acre park featuring history, archaeology, and horticulture on the South River.”

Do you love your waterways? Are you local to the Chesapeake Bay? Consider joining the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay for one or more of their Project Clean Stream events, or volunteer to love your planet with an organization near you.
