On Location Series #11–Fort Washington Park

This was a delightful day.  My little one and I explore Fort Washington Park which was the namesake of its location in Fort Washington, MD.    Fort Washington, established near the community of Fort Washington, Maryland, was for many decades the only defensive fort protecting Washington D.C. The original fort, overlooking the Potomac River, was built in 1809.  It was originally called  Fort Warburton but was renamed in 1808.  During the War of 1812, the fort was demolished by its own garrison during a British advance.

As of today, this historic fort is maintained by the National Park Service.  It was initially constructed in 1824. It is a stone structure with a reliable cannon directed down the Potomac River. The fort was largely remodeled in the 1840s and 1890s. The Fort was turned over to the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1946 after its last military personnel left.

Now with that bit of history out of the way, here are some videos and pictures of our time in the park.  Our visit took place on November 3, 2018.  I hope you will enjoy this brief On Location Series—

oh again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

On Location Series #8–Rosaryville State Park

Rosaryville State Park, a hidden gem in Clinton, MD.  This August 18, 2018, On Location venture, started off a little dissuading at first.  The upkeep of the park was less desirable as portions showed overgrown grass and much-needed parking lots repair.  The nuance of well-kept picnic grounds compared to other places showed greatly that certain areas were much cared for than others.

It was also the location of Mount Airy Manson which was elegant.  The grounds were splendid to the eye as I saw greenhouses and ground root cellars for vegetation purpose.  The history of the park was apparent to the owners of the mansion and the numerous items scattered throughout the landscape (It is one of the oldest Maryland mansions connected to the Calvert family, the Lords Proprietor of colonial Maryland).  A tobacco barn, an old cannon cart I discovered through my trek in the woods.  This was a huge park and it kept so much mystery that I will allow you guys, to journey through my pictures and videos.  Even some pictures that held a hidden, even darker meaning behind them.

Just a show of what is among us in the least of places, closets to our homesteads as it allows the heart to dance in sync with the mind.  Now that I got your attention for understanding…,

It is time to commence.
