Today was a dreary kinda rainy day, but we did not want to spend the day in the house. We decided to head East over the Potomac River Bridge at Dalgren Naval Station. So we left this morning and brought an extra passenger with us. Petey the dog has been howling horribly when we leave for longer periods of time... so we brought him along. He loves to ride in the truck...so he had a good time with us.
Two summers ago when we vacationed in Solomon's Island Maryland, we noticed that there is a ferry that runs off Point Lookout State Park. This was a important fort during the Civil War, as it was the point at which the Potomac River branches off of the Chesapeake Bay. There is an old prisoner of war camp there from the Civil War, as well as a light house. Having never been down that direction we made tracks. We are really never ones to be daunted by the weather, it was actually not very cold at all, just drizzly and very windy out on Lookout Point. There was a high tide warning as the high tide was expected to be much higher than normal because of the weather system that is punching through.
Carson wanted to ride on the buggy's that the Amish use. It was raining very hard, and I took this through the front windshield of the truck...so kinda blurry.One of the Amish farms we passed.It was a fun day.....we are hoping to head up to the mountains tomorrow...the leaves are supposed to be at near peak Fall colors.
