Patapsco Valley State Park Trip, Day 5


Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge

Patapsco Valley State Park & Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge, Wednesday, July 28, 2021

We drove to the Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge to meet Karin, Valerie & Zoe, my daughter & granddaughters.  They will be visiting the park tomorrow, and today we decided to meet half way between the park and their house.

There is a Visitor Center that had a number of displays, and a very informative desk attendant that handed out maps, etc.  The girls enjoyed a live display of the various stages between eggs to butterfly, although no butterflies were ready today.  Sorry for the order of the photos, but for what ever reason, Google isn't letting me change them.

We took a short hike around a pond, and Karin & all headed off to summer camp drop offs.

After that we stopped at Anne's cousin's, then all headed to lunch.  I had one of the specials - A chicken fried steak sandwich, very different from most - it included a fried egg, chorizo sausage, cheese and fried onions.  While it sounds a bit overdone, it was actually pretty good!

After that we went back to Bill & Deidre's to relax, then headed back to the campground.  No dinner, all of us were still full from lunch.  I did bake a blueberry pie to share with Karin & family tomorrow.  Glad to have the air conditioning.  While the oven does add lots of heat to the trailer, the AC can handle it.
