Jug Bay railroad bed

We went on a spring hike at Jug Bay Wetlands with a naturalist. She was great. We have been to Jug Bay numerous times but learned a lot and went on some different trails today.

There are three different thoughts as to how Jug Bay got its name. The first one is the bay is shaped like a jug, the second one is Indians settled there and lots of pottery has been discovered and the last one is that English sailors did a lot of drinking and thru the jugs overboard when they were finished

Part of the hike was on an old railroad bed. At one time the railroad ran from Washington, D.C. to Chesapeake Beach.Chesapeake Beach was the site of many slot machines in the early twentieth century as part of the “Little Nevada” area of southern Maryland.
Bet this is absolutely gorgeous in the spring. ( Like guess #3 for its name.) It's sounding like you're having some better weather finally.
