Places we did and did not go
As always, there was a big plan for the day, but our goal was the boardwalk at Patuxent River Park. There was some confusion about whether this was Jackson landing and I think it turns out that that is on the other side of the water.
When we arrived this magnificent tower greeted us.
We followed the Brown Trail to the right, then caught up with the blue trail, which promised a viewing area that turned out to be a dead end. At the bottom of the stairs we should have turned right to land us on a return boardwalk, but we wandered left and took a disappearing path that brought us back to the porta potty where we started. w e doubled back and took the correct boardwalk and had a lovely walk through the swamp.
Miller farm, a total disappointment. A great place I suppose if you live in the neighborhood, but certainly not a place to head to for a good time.
Rolling rib part 2 – we were the only white people to come and go during our time here. We ordered a great fried fish- whiting I think and sat at the picnic tables on the side with that, which was fabulous, some average brisket, some disappointing Mac and cheese, a couple of very good corn muffins and some great bbq fries. We would definitely come back, but we need to plan better where to eat become the picnic tables, though clean and comfortable seemed to attract flies, which was pretty distracting when you are trying to eat.
And then all the things we did not do and places we did not go.
Heavens Bakery. Linden Butter Crunch Cookies – we didn’t make it
saved for another day….
Chesapeake Beach Railway Trail –
The Chesapeake Railway trail spans almost two miles is bike and wheelchair accessible offering views of Fishing Creek and wildlife. The trail utilizes the old railroad line that brought the Town into existence.
Enjoy the numerous songbirds and wildlife that inhabit the waterway as the trail is a journey across nature. In addition, there are exhibits along the trail courtesy of the Chesapeake Beach Oyster Culitivation Society (CBOCS). CBOCS has also installed opsrey platforms, created educational gardens teaching residents how to combat the local mosquito and installed bat boxes and purple martin houses.
Parking to access the trail is available in the Kellam’s complex parkingl lot on Gordon Stinnett Boulevard at the trail’s northern endpoint. Dogs are welcome on the trail, but must be on a leash and the owners must pick up after their pets to keep our trail healthy and beautiful.
