"Founded in 1957 to protect the view from Mount Vernon across the Potomac River, the Accokeek Foundation, an educational nonprofit, became one of the nation's first land trusts. Today, the Foundation stewards 200 hundred acres of Piscataway National Park in Accokeek, MD, where visitors can hike a network of trails winding through wetlands, visit a native tree arboretum, and observe an award-wining forest restoration project. The newly reconstructed boat dock offers stunning views of Mount Vernon and allows visitors to arrive by passenger boat and kayakers to access the Potomac via newly installed kayak launches The Foundation also runs the National Colonial Farm, a living history museum that depicts a Maryland middle-class family farm" ((for more info please see here: https://www.nps.gov/pisc/planyourvisit/ncf.htm))

Hey there, look ya there ...a friendly pig, or hungry one? So cute!! I am not an expert on critters, but those horned cows, I am sure there is a more proper name for them? Maybe u know??! ... were very warm, they were seeking shade behind the barn and it made you wonder what they were thinking? Do animals understand WHY we humans talk to them??! WHAT? makes you wonder??! RIGHT?! I know were were warm, guess they need a bigger barn for bigger shade? Hope you are well. Thanks, for stopping by today!! Take Care, Beth ( ;

The horns looked odd to me too. Maybe it is an uncommon breed? The pig looks lonely. :(

I have no name for those cows, but I know that I would not want to get too close to those horns.

The cows are different from what you'd normally expect.
Rose said…
This is a place I would like to visit...as are most of the place you show. Oh, well, this will not happen. I don't know what kind of cows those are...

I'd like to go there too. Years ago I visited with an archaeology group but the park was not fully developed yet.

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
