Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing about our little day trip to Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. This beautiful state park has so many things going for it. A hike, a beach, and fossils! It is only about an hour outside of D.C., and is great for families. For more info, check out the state park website.
There are several paths that you can take to the beach, with varying difficulties and distances. We chose the easiest and shortest path, and that one is the Red path - 1.8 miles. Our trusty wagon was very useful as our kids couldn't have done four miles on their little legs.
My sister flew out to see us the day her medical residency ended. She's an attending now! I can't believe it. I'm so grateful for her and her love for our kids - they love having her around.
I'm not sure what you call this - I think it's marshland? Is it a bog? Anyway, there was a lot of it getting to the beach.
A path to nowhere.
We finally got to the beach!
Calvert Cliffs is known for daily fossil deposits on its beach. We didn't find any megalodon teeth, but we did see someone who had found one on our day there. Parts of the beach are closed off to the public because of falling trees and rocks - its really beautiful.
You could bring your own beach toys, but there is a big crate with a lot of sieves and beach toys to share - so great!
There seems to be this innate desire in people around the world to stack things... or is that just my experience?
My husband and his whittling!
1.8 miles back - almost to our car!
