With two children in Scouting, I’m blessed to have excuses to get outdoors and explore our beautiful world.  Today we had gorgeous fall weather and lots of Girl Scouts who wanted to be outside and in the water.  We visited the Chesapeake Exploration Center – an unusual cross between visitors’ center and museum – and Terrapin Nature Park on the Eastern Shore of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay.  Look for details in a few days.

Today was also a wonderful day for looking at airplanes.  Read about D. C.-area aircraft observation spots at today’s travel Hub.  In our family, plane spotting is a tradition.  Why not give it a try?
