After our fun weekend in the city, we made an attempt to spend the remainder of the week at Greenbelt Park. But then the rain started, the already slow Internet connection became almost unbearable, and we knew we had to get out of there. So on Tuesday afternoon we broke free and drove an hour away to a lovely Maryland state park on the eastern side of the Chesapeake.
Tuckahoe State Park resides in a slice of dense forest smack in the middle of some fine Maryland farmland. The sites are arranged in two loops – one with electric hook-ups and one without. After more than a week of relying on generator power in our shady spot at Greenbelt, we decided to splurge, and for $33/night got us some of that sweet, sweet electricity. It was a good decision since it rained for most of our stay.
By the looks of this dense forest I doubt we could have generated much solar power even if the sun had come out.
We managed to get out one afternoon for a bike ride during a break in the rain. We rode down to the lake and over to the arboretum. It rained on us nearly the whole way back, but the thick tree cover keep us mostly dry.
The park was almost empty, making for a very pleasant, if brief, stay. After a short two days of we continued onto Delaware for a fun filled family camping weekend. Stay tuned…
