I could get used to living here. •••
Today was the best! A nice  paddle down Tuckahoe Creek checking wood duck boxes. We recorded the amount of hatched, partially hatched, and unhatched chicks from last year while replacing bedding for this year. One momma duck did so well we left her a note telling her so(mom's like to hear they are doing a good job!). Wood ducks will be back soon and their boxes are ready for them! #tuckahoestatepark #ilovemyjob #woodducks

Pinxter Flower (Rhododendron periclymenoides) photo by Bill Hubick. Maryland Biodiversity Project and the Maryland Plant Atlas are pleased to partner with our friends at @adkinsarboretum in Caroline Co., Maryland. Adkins Arboretum is a beautiful place with rich and varied habitats adjacent to Tuckahoe SP. Its visitor center and trail system make it an especially family-friendly destination for nature enthusiasts. It should be on any naturalist's radar for future visits, whether for birds, butterflies, or native plants (or all three and much more, of course!). As part of our support, we have created web services from Maryland Biodiversity Project (which shares its database with the Maryland Plant Atlas) to allow mapping all species to the MBP/MPA species pages. We also created a tag look-up service so they can re-use our mapping of RTE (Rare, Threatened, Endangered) status, native vs. non-native, and so on. We're also pleased to note that MBP already has over 675 species documented for Adkins Arboretum! #marylandbiodiversityproject #adkinsarboretum #carolinecountymd #easternshoremd #conservation #nature #natureenthusiast #tuckahoestatepark #birds #butterflies #nativespecies #pinxterflower #rhododendren #takeahike #walkinnature #naturetime #exploringnature #marylandnature
A northern pine snake at Tuckahoe State Park in Caroline County, Md., is a representative of a species that unfortunately is considered to be extirpated from western Maryland and West Virginia and in decline across its northeastern range. It can be found in patches of habitat from New Jersey to Florida.

Just thinking a bunch and enjoying my last few days home. No matter how much we want things to stay the same, life is all about change. Sometimes change is for the better, and sometimes its not. But no matter why things are changing, we need to be able to let go and move on. Whether it’s the death of a loved one, a painful breakup, a business failure, or a treacherous betrayal, holding onto pass pain and resentment will only hold you back.  Luke 9:62 Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” Big changes coming my way!
Playing with some time lapse photography gave me some time to think and gave me a higher perspective on things.  Philippians 1:21 says, “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Most people focus on the second part of the verse, “to die is gain,” and contemplate the joys of heaven. But we should not overlook what comes before. The importance of the phrase “to live is Christ” cannot be overstated. In all honesty, this phrase should be central to every Christian’s life. “To live is Christ” means that Christ is our focus, our goal, and our chief desire. Christ is the center point of our mind, heart, body and soul. Everything that we do, we do for Christ’s glory. As we run the “race marked out for us,” we lay aside the entangling sin and worldly distractions, “fixing our eyes on Jesus” (Hebrews 12:1-2). He is our life.
This is Tuckahoe Creek after a sand quarry (swipe right) decided to drain their holding lagoon into the nearby “ditch,” polluting up to seven miles of the Tuchakoe (photo taken in 2015). Because of a citizen complaint we were able to quickly respond to the threat, contact the appropriate agencies, and eliminate the source of discharge. Consider this a public service announcement for anyone that sees our waterways being polluted to contact us at @shorerivers or your local riverkeeper and remember to #protectwhatyoulove
#soul #spirit for #navigatingthroughnovember .  The way the setting sun glows orange-red, the wind plays shushing percussion on the pine trees, the reservoir surface mirrors the sky, and my son is a self-appointed protector of the wooly bear caterpillar on the dirt path to this lookout point. .  I adore this season of the year so much that I ache. My soul says yes to the turning inward. My spirit soars with the hawk above and converses with the murder of crows. Every detail clings to my eyes fighting to stay like the last berries on these barren bushes at the water's edge. .  Hoping you all have a joyous gracious Thanksgiving holiday and your gratitude spills from your heart, your soul, and your eyes and lands where it is needed. .  #taleswithfriends #wonderfull #getoutside #autumn #storyofmyday #tuckahoestatepark #motherearth #mindfulness #connecttonature #bepresent #mywisdomlessons #nature #ordinaryadventures #mywisdomlessons
