Our tour of eastern Maryland began in Virginia. We bumpity-bumped over cobblestones down to…
…the mighty Potomac, with the ice-whittled remains of a wharf.
Finally in Maryland, we found Mattawoman Creek, spelled Mataughquamend by Captain John Smith back in about 1608.
This is Back Creek, just off the Patauxent.
And this is the Severn River. Now that’s an assortment of interesting names and places.
