Locally-sourced adventures

When a colleague goes up to Baltimore for work on a Saturday, there is nothing to prohibit a wanderlust-afflicted friend from jumping into the passenger seat of a zipcar and zipping along to “that place on the map”, a place chosen by pointing an indiscriminate finger at a peninsula north east of the city, invitingly shaded over with green and surrounded -as a peninsula should be- with blue.

And so it is I found myself discovering North East, MD, and Elk Neck State Park on a cloudy yet beautiful Saturday afternoon.

Surprised to discover that the ‘cliffs’ were actually quite jagged
