I took the “Road-trip” thing quite seriously.
The other day, we decided to go find this road by the canal, under and between the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal Bridge and the St. George Bridge. It was a really nice area, you could actually walk by the water.
This is the bridge you will have to take from Newark, New Castle, (The Northern part of Delaware) if you want to go towards the Beaches (Down South)
They are many beautiful birds around the area. Partly because it’s the Chesapeake Bay.
If you wonder what this Bay is, here a map and some details:
“The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States. It lies off the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded byMaryland and Virginia. The Chesapeake Bay’s drainage basin covers 64,299 square miles (166,534 km2) in the District of Columbia and parts of six states: New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. More than 150 rivers and streams drain into the Bay, and it comprises 64,000 square miles (170,000 km2) of bays, marshes and rivers” (Thank you Wikipedia)
“Marsh”… the key word. Who says marshes and rivers, says birds :)
It was the first time I saw a Vulture. I have seen many beautiful birds in Delaware. But this one was pretty nice, he didn’t want to leave, I tried to make him fly away, but he just liked to pose like a model. I got him from pretty close.
