Title: Day hikes on the DelMarVa peninsula
Post by: silenthunterstudios on July 25, 2014, 08:25:43 AM
After work this Saturday I'll be heading to Ocean City MD for a week spent with family in the bustling resort town.  I believe it is just nostalgia that keeps me coming back, but traveling to areas outside OC help.  I've got plans of visiting Chincoteague VA and the rest of the lower VA portion of the DelMarVa, the small town of Crisfield MD, and my brother in law wants to go over to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge further inland to the Chesapeake Bay.  I also plan on checking out the Delaware seashore, from Lewes to Fenwick Island, lots of beach trails and a small park near the Lewes ferry.  I am a fat guy getting out there, no expert by any means.  These days hikes are pretty much what I am limited to right now, with the issues from a broken back and leg sustained in an accident I was in a couple years ago contributing to my limited mobility.  I have been doing a lot better, and hiked a small portion of the Appalachian Trail several weeks ago (it was only about 50 yards, but I can say I hiked the AT ;), after I visited Washington Monument State Park). 

I've gotta say that living in Maryland I am blessed to live in this state.  The ocean a three hour drive away, the mountains a three hour drive away, and the Bay an hour drive away.  Beautiful country side and some great parks just outside my door.  I will post pics using Tapatalk from my iPhone.

Best rehab is the outdoors. You got to get out there and do it before it works. Go have fun and come back and share your accomplishments.

Nothing refreshes ones mind any better than a good walk in good country.
