The morning of Saturday, October 31, 2020 started off quite well. We woke up early and walked out to the beach, in the cold, to watch the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean.
After checking out of the hotel we found some breakfast at one of the many Fractured Prune donut shops in the area. They specialize in cake donuts with different crazy toppings, something we are not used to seeing in Kentucky.
As you can see, we ate a few before I decided to finally take a picture. They were just that good!
Our first stop for the day was the Assateague Island National Seashore.
After exploring the visitor center we took a trail from the visitor center that led to a house that had been in the area for a few hundred years.
Then we went into the park and immediately came across some wild horses.
We took a forest trail.
We also took the dunes trail.
We walked a marsh trail as well.
After the park we stopped for lunch in nearby Berlin, Maryland. It was a quaint little town with lots of shops and eateries in the downtown area. There were multiple antique places, clothing stores, a toy store, and a candy shop.
We ate lunch at Rayne’s Reef. I can’t remember exactly what I had to eat but they did have some good milkshakes.
We just had to pick up some candy too.
Our last fun stop for the day was the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historic Park in Church Creek, Maryland.
The park opened in 2013 as a National Monument and was made a National Historic Park the next year. The park includes different sites all around the area but we only went to the visitor center. The visitor center gives a good history on the life of Harriet Tubman and many of the slaves she helped guide to freedom.
We ended the night at a hotel near the airport outside of Baltimore. It had a restaurant conveniently next door, a Chili’s. Now, that’s not somewhere we would normally eat at, but the food was pretty good.
We still have one more day of adventure in Baltimore to go before the end of our trip!
