Point Lookout State Park is located at the southern tip of St. Mary's county in Maryland. It is a peninsula formed by the confluence of the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River. It's a popular summer destination for fishing, camping, and cooling off in the river (although not everywhere as seen above).
During the Civil War, Point Lookout was a Union Prison of War camp. Over 50,000 Confederate soldiers were held there, and according to Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources close to 4,000 soldiers died at the POW camp.

Annemarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center is very cool places to visit in Calvert County, Maryland (about and hour and half from Washington DC). It includes a walking tour with lots of sculptures (some on loan from the Smithsonian in DC) and this summer thru September 25th, they have a special exhibit called "Fairies in the Garden" in the memory of local artist who apparently was a big contributor to Annemarie center. For more information checkout their web site: http://www.annmariegarden.org/

Kicked off the 4th of July weekend with a day trip to Rehoboth Beach Delaware. The traffic getting there wasn't great, but the beach and weather was nice! This cool dog on the main drag was my favorite photo of the day!
