At Bar Harbor RV Park ~ Storm Coming

Pretty cool last eve watching a storm come up the bay from the south. The white caps grew on the water, moored boats strained their lines,  and you could see the sheet of rain work its way up on the water.
Today the open water is still, as we eat breakfast and ready to go hiking in Susquehanna State Park.
Storm coming just as we came in from our hike and shopping. Tide is quite high.

Enjoying the Chesapeake

The RoadAbode Crew had a great day touring Havre de Grace and Susquehanna State Park. Enjoyed checking in at the Lighthouse and will stop back to peruse the shopping district Friday or Saturday. After checking the camping area in Susquehanna, glad we couldn't get in, and opted to try out Bar Harbor. Coming back to our spot at Bar Harbor RV Park and Marina is absolutely restful. I enjoy watching the waterfowl gliding by and are more interesting to watch fishing than their human counterparts.

A New Neighbor at Bar Harbor RV Park in MD

A new neighbor pulled in at Bar Harbor RV Park. Stopped by to say hello and complement the paint scheme, and was gifted with some Jelly Bellies! Lucky couple gets to travel around the US, and give out Jelly Belly jellybeans at various festivals, concerts and other events. Have a matching VW as a toad. Quite cool!

On to the next campground

We have moved on from Cherry Hill RV Park, driven up 95 and 695, & are now settled in at Bar Harbor RV Park and Marina.  The view of the upper Chesapeake is beautiful,  with the occasional egret, heron, or duck flying past. Think we'll enjoy this new place.

Lunching @ National Portrait Gallery

Eating fancy sandwiches in the Courtyard.  A nice peaceful respite after the action and adventure of the Spy Museum, located right across the street.

Wet in Washington DC

Sunday, headed in early to see some monuments and memoriald before heading to the National Archives, American and Natural History Museums.  Plans were thwarted by a downpour as soon as we got off the Metro.  Ended up hanging out under the Archives massive front. Was still fun just talking with the girls. We made plans, and still got to see most of what we'd planned. Today, the Spy Museum and Portrait Gallery.

Evening in College Park, MD

Made it down 95 without a hitch to Cherry Hill RV Park. Had a late lunch in their great cafe, enjoyed a swim with the girls (even fit in a nap) and just relaxed and laughed for a good bit. Caught a photo of the girls playing with sparklers. Looking forward to touring a bit of DC tomorrow.
