Women Travel Better in Pairs - 48 Hour Episode
Developing with Marston Smith.Northern Neck-The Tides Inn Series
We welcome Marston Smith, development manager for the Tides Inn: Unique Family Ties
Marston is overseeing the extensive shoreline restoration – a $3.6M project in its first phase.
This is very rare for a hotel or resort to invest this much money into an environmental project and he may have a fresh face but he knows his stuff.
Marston is truly excited to bring a smile to work everyday and this job is an interesting "homecoming" for Marston as he shares with us his connection to this "special" place on the Northern Neck.
A massive environmental-giving-back revitalization.
Ecologist Will Smiley.Northern Neck-The Tides Inn Series
Say Hello to Will Smiley, Resort Ecologist: "Nature Makes Sense"
Will Smiley is the Tides Inn’s first resident ecologist!
As the resort restores its shoreline in spring and summer 2021, Smiley is bringing exciting programming to guests at the Inn. For example, you can canoe or kayak with him in a two-hour excursion to learn more about aquatic life – even casting a net to see what you catch. Also, in “Chesapeake Gold” tour, guests learn about oysters, pulling up oyster cages and sort these gems of the bay.
He has big plans for sustainability and stewardship for the resort. Plus this native Virginian doesn't mind chatting travel, survival and duck poop.
Will is fun to chat with no matter the topic!
