The Old Stone Barn

The stone barn – Frederick, Maryland

One of the treats to visit around Frederick, Maryland, is the Monocacy National Battlefield that is located just to the southeast of town. On the grounds of the working farms located within the battlefield can be found some original structures like this old stone barn, which is made from locally sourced materials. Sadly, the battlefield has I-270 completely cutting it in half, which can be seen in the far distance.

Pillars of the Earth

Washington National Cathedral – Washington, DC

With apologies to Ken Follett, but every time I go into a huge religious structure I immediately think of his book by the same title. The Washington National Cathedral is no exception, and is a place I like to revisit every so often to see new details and aspects that I missed on prior visits – in this case, some of the beautiful arch work in the exterior side hallways.

Day is Done

Smith Point – Ridge, Maryland

Sunsets on the water can be really hit or miss, depending on a variety of factors – weather, sea state, sky conditions, humidity, etc. But when everything is perfect, sunsets on the water can just be spectacular. This is one of the many sunsets we enjoyed at the place where we kept our sailboat – Point Lookout Marina – in Ridge, Maryland.
