Wait, Wye?

A New Look

Wait! Please don’t leave – you are on the right website, but the new look is a result of my diligent efforts over the past couple of weeks to update this site so that it is easier to navigate and to insure that it appears correctly in all browsers. Please forgive me if you have encountered errors over the past few days as I tweaked the new template.  I hope to have all that behind me now. Please let me know if you have any problems with this new format and I will attempt to address them.  If you check out the new page top menu, you will see that under “Fun Places To Visit,” you can select posts by state to quickly discover if we have been somewhere in a particular state that you might want to learn about or visit.  I hope that by making these changes, your website experience here will be awesome!  I am also hoping to someday ascend to the lofty regions of webdom to which my friend and fellow Blogger, Jim Brown has recently been welcomed.  His website was named one of the top 100 RV blogs.  Congratulations, Jim!  Please help me join him by sharing my blog with anyone you think might enjoy it!

A Visit to Wye Island

20161116_112443Thankfully my time in Delaware is not exclusively devoted to working on my website.  Storm and I are honored to be the very special guests of Rufus and Captain Morgan for a couple of adventure filled days exploring their favorite day trips out of Seaford, DE. Storm and I struggle to keep up with their high energy hikes, but we hang in there because these two know how to have fun!  After screeching to a halt on the side of the road where a Bald Eagle is snacking on some road kill (no one got a picture, too surprised to react quickly), we cross the bridge over to Wye Island .  This Maryland Natural Resource Management Area is a peaceful, verdant place to stroll among the Osage Orange trees.  The tangled, thorn covered low growing branches of the Osage trees along the paths here provide a good demonstration of why these trees were used as natural fencing before barb wire was invented.  This tree is very effective at keeping Storm and me on the trail and though some might argue that I am no match mentally for cows or goats, even these wily animals were successfully corralled by this tenacious living barrier years ago.

      Glad you liked it! I can’t wait to get the Fort Miles video done – loved the photobomb and I did find some of the old pictures from when Storm’s dad was stationed there. They are awesome and I am working hard to share them here. Storm did do a great job with the selfie, of course he had wonderful material to work with.

  3. Great job. First class. Thanks for the time and energy you put into sharing your travels with us. Enjoying every one.
