We saw horses along Chaptico Road on our way to the first rest stop.

After Walt's route separated we went down Bayside to Compton, where we saw that spring had definitely arrived: the portolets were back at Back Road Inn Stadium, and folks were practicing on the ball field.

Heading towards Newtowne Neck - one of the earliest settlements in Maryland.

Breton Bay, seen at the entrance to the park.

The Navigator's Prayer  Oh God, where am I?

What a great ride!
