Havre de Grace - The Promenade

And interesting feature in Havre de Grace is the Promenade, a wooden boardwalk that travels a half mile along the waterfront. Along the way are a wetland bay cove, great views of the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay, and a great old stone hotel that was a prime meeting (and drinking) place during the Prohibition era. I'd walked it years ago and couldn't wait to visit again. There's a Decoy Museum (decoys being hand-carved wooden replicas made to resemble ducks and other waterfowl to lure them within the reach of hunters' guns) along the way as well, as the Chesapeake Bay area is recognized as the home of some of the best carvers in the world. I went in, but I didn't take any pictures, going on the assumption that museums really don't like you taking pictures of their exhibits; click on the link above to visit their website.

In any event, here are the best of the shots I took along the Havre de Grace Promenade. Enjoy!
