Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow…  
Back to my home, I dare not go… 

That children’s jingle may have been the first song you ever sang (and we use that word loosely) about the bay. And now here we are, in the middle of another Maryland winter wishing we were cruising on our boat and singing about the bay.  

While we’re huddled indoors instead, the team at Atlantic Marinas has been reminiscing about our boating playlists. So, we thought it would be fun to pull together and share our favorite songs that remind us of summer days, the Chesapeake Bay, fishing, and boating. Did we miss any of your favorites?
