Write Up:

We had a great time hiking through the wetlands and marshes that border the Chesapeake Bay. Although the bugs were biting at first, they backed off once we got moving. We explored an abandoned power station, checked out an old pier, and strolled through the visitor's center. A few of us also went for a swim at the beach.

After the hike, a group met at the Bay Cafe for lunch and a great view of the Baltimore harbor.

It was a gorgeous day with lots of sunshine and low humidity.
Thanks, Matt, for taking us to that place.
We loved the trails, the bugs loved us. and the view at the water was wide and open.
A few of us went swimming, it would be a great family event (as demonstrated by the three little boys that came with one couple).
