Well, as you can tell we survived the Maryland Lighthouse Challenge. It took 2 days and 650 driving miles. Friday night, the Sheraton Inner Harbor was nice though the staff needs courtesy lessons. We were off the next morning


Cheaspeake Lightship


Seven Foot Knoll (old pic)


Fort Washington Light (Sorry, Frani chopped off the top).


Piney Point Light


Summer taking a walk along Piney Point's beach.


Point Lookout (old pic - The light is on a National Park and in this section dogs are not allowed out of their vehicles.)


Drum Point Light


Cove Point Light

That was all the lights we could make on day one. By this time Summer and Murphy were REALLY tired... of getting their pictures taken.

We spent the night at the Tilghman Island Inn. A very nice inn that is VERY dog friendly. We had dinner in the bar with Summer & Murphy. The house dog (a standard black poodle names Jasmine) visited, then fell asleep on one of the lounge chairs while another lady brought in her Maltese to have a drink at the bar. We were off and running the next morning.


Hooper Strait Light


Turkey Point Light - Summer & Murphy like the mile long hike through the woods to get to the light.


Corcord Point Light - the last light on the challenge.

After all these lights and a badly misinformed GPS unit, we actually finished second at this light, and we didn't even try.

Well, next month is the New Jersey Lighthouse Challenge. Summer & Murphy are old hat with this one. They have done it twice before.

I think those beagles have been to more attractions than I have! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I'd love to do that one day, take some beagles (by the time we do it, it won't be our current beagles) on a trip around Australia and take their photo at all the sites.

Great pictures, and Summer and Murphy sure do look like they enjoyed themselves!

Great fotos! What a fun family activity. We just got a GPS but it will probably be quite a while before I figure out how to use it!! Thanks for sharing. Julie

Those are such beautiful pictures! I am jealous. Wish I could go see all those in person. Murphy and Summer look exhausted but like they had fun!

The way Murphy is sitting at Drum Point is the way he normally sits since his injury 8 years ago, its from being partially paralyzed. We have noticed Summer sitting like that from time to time since her back surgery.

As for the GPS, do not trust it completely. When we were going to Fort Washington Light, I entered the longitude and latitude coordinates. You would think since it is set to "car/motorcycle" it would stick to roads. Instead of staying in Maryland, it took us into Virginia and we went south along the western side of the Potomac river. Once it got as close to the coordinates as it could, it said "TURN LEFT", not "TURN LEFT ON such and such STREET" Just "TURN LEFT". A left turn at that moment would make us drve through a median, across on coming traffic, down an embankment, into the Potomac river. I guess it assumed my Subaru can float as well. It took an hour and I needed a paper map to re-rout myself back on course, luckily I had one. And yes, I called Garmin and explained to them the error or their unit. The service rep. thought is was funny too.

The moral is: Always know where you are going ahead of time and never completely trust technology.

Beautiful pictures!
Did you do a search on lighthouses on line and started your journey?
Some day I would like to do that with my husband.
Agree with you with the GPS, I usually print out a direction from mapquest along with the GPS. At times the GPS would say a different street name than the map said, even scarier, the street name on the freeway exit sign is different from what it's telling you! My guess is we just need a update on the GPS the info is old, all we need is to purchase a upgrade disk from them and install the info back on. But I just purchase the darn GPS couple of months ago!
