Photos on Friday: Terrapin Nature Park in Maryland

In August we took a trip up to Long Beach Island in New Jersey. A wonderful and beautiful place. Instead of taking I-95 north, we decided to go the long way by driving east through Maryland. Our original intention was to take the Cape May-Lewes Ferry into New Jersey, but that didn't work out due to timing. You see, we drove straight through the heart of Washington D.C. into Maryland with the intentions of crossing through Kent Island to continue east. I've always wanted to visit Kent Island...

Once we crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, we decided to stop for a bit. We discovered the wonderful Terrapin Nature Park in Stevensville (right off the bridge) and decided this is where we'd spend our time. Needless to say, by the time we were ready to buy our ferry tickets, many of the times were sold out. Next time!

Here are some photos I'd taken while at Terrapin Nature Park.
Had a grand time watching these lovelies off in the distance

Spotted this guy, which I believe is a type of blue heron, hanging out off to the side and tried to zoom in

A rare type of photo for me. Dragonflies are always so elusive for me to catch (but does happen on occasion!) Not to mention I don't see red ones often

Views of the bridge from the Terrapin beach were stunning


  1. What a beautiful place, I am not at all surprised that you stopped to take pictures and lost track of time, just lovely.

    1. Well, there was that :).
      But really we also misjudged how long the trail we took was. There were three loops on the map and we missed the "exit" on the shortest.
      It was totally worth it though, a great adventure in the end! Thanks for reading and commenting
