Drum point lighthouse and museum-Solomans Island

Located in Calvert county Md..   The grandchildren enjoyed the museum so much.   They got to touch a sea turtle, starfish and fish.    They really liked the otters.

never want to see one of these in person

I had to get a quick shot of them here.  Seemed like as soon as they hopped in the boat and put on their hats, they were back out again ready to see something else. 

Looks cozy,  but took a lot of work to make it feel that way I'm sure.

Drum Point lighthouse was constructed in 1883 to mark the entrance to the Patuxent river.   This screw style cottage type light is one of only three that remain of 45, that at the beginning of the 20th century served the Chesapeake bay. Decommissioned in 1962, it has been beautifully restored.
We took a walk along the beach looking for sea glass.  I found a couple pieces,  very pretty place.
