We went geocaching Christmas Eve.

I picked this cache because I wanted to see the Bay and the Bay Bridge. So we took a road trip to Kent Island.

The park is called Terrapin Nature Area. It's a nice park, 74 acres I think. It's a marshy area and has lots of waterfowl viewing blinds.

It was about 45 degrees, overcast and very windy.

The trails are nice, some kinda mushy, luckily the ground was mostly frozen, so it wasn't very muddy.

We walked the beach trail which is nice. It had a lot of washed-up litter, but wasn't too bad. You can see in some pictures some concrete erosion barriers to help keep the beach from washing away.

The cache was tough to find. The cooridinates took us right to it ( about 3 feet away), but it was hidden well. After looking for about 10 minutes we almost gave up when my Wife said "Here!". She always finds 'em before me.

Afterwards we found a seafood place/microbrewery called Ram's Head Shore House. Great food, crab dip, crab cakes, burgers and beer. They are a microbrewery and their beer is really good.

Crossing the Bay Bridge is pretty wild. It's very long and narrow. It curves too, which is weird for a bridge.
