Meet Pete and Pam Wright, Founders of Wrightslaw

Pete & Pam: Up Close and Personal

Camelot Our Home

Pete and Pam Wright live on Stingray Point, on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. 2 miles east of Deltaville, Virginia.

During the early 1600s, Captain John Smith explored the Chesapeake Bay. He wrote about discovering a world of ancient forests, strong, proud people, and water teeming with life in this “goodly bay” and its rivers.

While fishing in shallow waters on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, Captain Smith was stung by a ray and nearly died. After he recovered, he named the peninsula Stingray Point.
You can follow Captain Smith's explorations on the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, America's first national water trail.

Pete & Pam on the beach at homeThe village of
Deltaville is located on Virginia's coastal plan, at the eastern end of the Middle Peninsula. The mouth of Rappahanock River is a few hundred feet north of our house. The mouth of the Piankatank River is less than a mile to the south. The Eastern Shore lies seventeen miles to the east, across the Chesapeake Bay.

Our Family

We have two sons, a daughter, two daughters-in-law, and six beautiful grandkids.

Life on Stingray Point

Pam, Pete and Kubota

We love to sail, windsurf, fish, kayak, explore, and have adventures. We are amateur radio operators (Pete is AD4VI, Pam is KF4LCU).

A wise farmer once told us, "If you have a tractor, you'll use it everyday." He was right. Pam is using the Kubota to clear land for a tree reforestation project. Pete uses it to pull stumps, logs and other heavy stuff. We take turns cutting the grass.
Stingray Point Light

After Bill Lohmann of The Richmond Times-Dispatch visited us, he wrote Paradise at end of the road - Champion of special-ed children still doing good while having more fun.

The image on the left is an exact replica of the original Stingray Point Lighthouse (circa 1928) at Stingray Point Marina
