Camping in Maryland

Hubby and I went camping in Maryland last week for 3 nights.  We had so much fun!  We stayed at Pocomoke River State Park and visited Ocean City, MD, Assateague Island,  and Chincoteague Island.  I grew up going to Ocean City with my family, plus hubby and I camped 8 years in a row at…

Meadow Hike

Tuscarora State Park is beautiful ~ I feel happy and rejuvenated after a hike through this lush forest full of amazing natural wonders to pause and look at…. <3<3<3 “Keep your spirits high; let the little things excite you. Small joys prepare us for the big ones.”

Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park

Paterson, NJ is known for the first planned industrial city and was centered around the Great Falls of the Passaic River.   This is fragrant sumac and it’s not poisonous.
