We took advantage of the wonderful weather today and drove down to Calvert Cliffs. For some reason, I had it in my head that it was super far away. It only took us about an hour and twenty minutes to get there this morning! I had a tip that a regular stroller might be a bit tough to manuever on the trail, so not having a jog stroller, I learned just how much that zipper pocket on our Ergo would hold. I was suitably impressed. I fit a sippy cup of water, two fruit bars, two cheese sticks, a baggie of wipes, two diapers, a change of baby clothes, two plastic bags (one for trash and one for shells and fossils), and my wallet/key chain. WOW. Jillian rode in the backpack for the 1.8 mile trek to the beach and again on the way back. I got a good workout.
The trail was a little mucky in places and was peppered with tree roots, but overall it was a nice walk. Tons of wildlife.
When we arrived at the beach, we encountered a couple that was leaving, and had the beach to ourselves for about an hour!
We collected some shells and fossils, but no shark teeth. I didn't think about taking something with which to sift through the silt! Oh well. We're definitely going back, so we'll find some shark teeth next time!
