Conowingo Dam on the Susquehana River in Maryland before it becomes the Cheasapeake Bay.

When the dam is generating power lots of fish sucked through the generators provide relatively easy feeding for lots of birds.

There is a big expanse of river below the dam and one has to be patient while waiting for action to happen within range or for a fly-over to occur.

Over-cast chill and dampish the morning  of these images.

Next stops: Bombay Hook and Prime Hook NWRs on the coast of Delaware Bay.

One knows when you have crossed the Mason-Dixon Line by the appearance of roadside Waffle Houses, never seen one beyond the Mason-Dixon Line.

Route 13 running south through Delaware has become one continuous strip mall down to well below Dover. It was always more developed once you hit Dover going north but almost 40 years has made a huge difference.Interesting mix of peoples, interesting mix of old and new and in-between establishments. Below Dover, long about Felton and Harrington the open spaces and farmland start to stretch out some.

We left Delaware long ago because the flat land hurt our eyes.
