My friends and I recently took two short road trips. On the first day we visited Solomon’s Island and Maryland’s only remaining cypress swamp. At Solomons, we visited the Calvert Marine Museum, the Oyster Museum, and strolled the island a bit. At the Swamp, we walked along the boardwalk, explored the museum, and hiked to an abandoned house and an old tobacco barn on the property.
On another day we went to Smith Island, a place that is slowly sinking. We rented golf carts to explore the tiny island. There are few cars. It was Sunday and we arrived just as people were walking from church to the local restaurants. It was a great day for the 1 1/2 hour boat ride to the island and then back.
Both road trips were great.
