Besides kayaking as often as possible, we enjoy visiting and identifying sites and events throughout DELMARVA. Our latest trip, while technically in PA, was to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. Various local publications reviewing the remodeled musical illuminated fountain show at Longwood Gardens give it high marks. […]
A nature lover who kayaks to explore the places others never see. After using books, web sites etc. to find kayaking locations it's time to share our information with others. Enjoy your time on the water!
There’s no mistaking the white head and tail. I saw a bald eagle swooping over my yard for the first time. I had seen them increasingly while driving across the Blackwater River and even passed three regulars almost every day on my commute to Salisbury, MD. Now they […]
