|I am just saying (yo digo nomas)……
Wishing everyone the best on Valentine’s Day.
|Winter weather in the Washington area is not what it used to be anymore and this past Saturday the thermometer climbed past 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius) providing a perfect excuse to get out of the house and visit a park, this time Elk Neck State Park near Northeast, MD, – about 80 miles from the Washington area, a quaint, busy little town which is the gateway to the park; lots of interesting shops and good food along main street. This park has great many amenities and one cannot take the whole thing in one day so I visited the lighthouse at Turkey Point and walked the trail loop bordering the Chesapeake Bay side of the park. A lot of work has been done to arrest erosion and one can walk on the rocks bordering the water, below the cliff. Over the years one can see how much erosion there has been and even today, there are areas where one has to be very careful not to step too close to the cliff because it is hard to assess if where one is standing there is support underneath; not safe for children, teens and fearless young people, I’d think.The lighthouse access trail passes by a small beach where many shells and driftwood collect. Further along the trail there is a great vine that climbs all the way to the top of the tree. A closer look around shows many vines and some seem to have suffocated and killed the host tree. The picture on the left is an attempt to capture the height and gird of one vine which, compared to the tree trunk, is quite impressive.A little too far to take clients for a photo-shoot but there are many places around the Washington Area where you’d look perfect. Just tell me when.Ernesto,
