Now in the Patapsco Valley State Park in Ellicott City, MD. We are only a few miles from Phyllis' house so much closer than the Ramblin Pines campground that we use to use with the trailers. That was about a 20+ miles drive in to visit and now only a few minutes.
After getting the camper settled in the campground we went in to visit with Phyllis and Tammy (her best friend and our claimed second daughter), In the past several years we have visited here in the month of June because of Phyllis' birthday. In those past years, June is when Tammy would take some of her vacation time and we didn't get to visit with her. Now since it is May we have enjoyed our time with both ladies. This evening the ladies took us to a nice local seafood restaurant for a Mother's Day celebration. We know that Sunday will be almost impossible to get into a restaurant because of that special day.
Another advantage in a May visit to this area is that the spring flowers are simply gorgeous, especially the azaleas and dogwood.
