The long-awaited website promoting Cape Charles as a tourist destination went live Thursday at http://www.capecharlesbythebay.com.
The $15,000 website was funded by the Cape Charles “Our Town” project through grants and contributions.
The website banner proclaims “Cape Charles by the Bay – Harbor for the Arts.” A visitor to the website sees a succession of five billboard presentations, each for three seconds.
First is “Love Your Harbor (Relax in Cape Charles),” with a photo of a sunset over the Bay. (Curiously, the Town Harbor is not shown.)
Second is “Love Your Sweet Dreams (Stay in Cape Charles),” with a close-up of rocking chairs on the porch at the Town’s oldest B&B, Sea Gate, owned by Vice-Mayor Chris Bannon.
