We Went To The Beach!

There are some state parks near us and Dad had promised us he would take us to one on Monday.  He chose one that has a beach.  Dogs are allowed on the beach after Labor Day, so that worked out for us.

The state park is called North Point State Park.  There is evidence that humans occupied the park 9,000 years ago.  During the War of 1812, British troops traveled through the area on their way to Baltimore.  In 1906, there was an amusement park in the park.  The park also served as a trolley stop for folks who traveled to and from Baltimore. 

Oh boy!  We are going to the beach!

There's the water. Where's the beach?


We made it!  We are not thrilled.



Scout decided to dip her feet in the water.


That's enough of the beach.
 Scout normally loves to run on sand, but not this time.


This is the trolly station.  It is now used for parties.


We walked all the way out here and then had to walk all the way back. There was nothing there but water.

Me and Dad leaving the girls in our dust.  BOL!

This tree was more impressive in person.



This fountain was put here when the amusement park was built.  It was turned off for the winter.

We were looking at Mom until we saw the camera.

Nope, we are not going to give her a good picture.
We had a nice time at the park.  It was pretty empty since it was a Monday.  People are supposed to pay to get in, but since it is off-season it is on the honor system.  We were paying and this car behind us honked at us to get out of the way.  So, not only were they rude to us, but they didn't pay to get in.  They probably thought we were fools for paying, but we felt it was the right thing to do.

I'm Back!

There is still not much going on, but I am pestering Mom today and she said maybe we should work on the blog.  They are cutting the gras...
