Experience first light in scientist cliffs, maryland… as I saw it a few days ago… I was staying up on the cliffs about 200 feet above the beach… the sun rises up over the bay, slowly, calmly, the waves are beneath, waiting… put it full screen and breath… and then click to look…

I am by no means a morning person, heck, look at my post times, but that said I made a point to wake up and crawl out into the cold (OK, only 40s), but it was an effort, this just shows me everything, it encompasses everything, it is the why I return to this spot every year, if only for a week, I do consider myself lucky to be able to do so, sure there are tropical paradises all over the world, but this is a mere 4 hour drive from me… and besides that I firmly believe in finding beauty wherever you may go

If you like my posts, let me know, engage and enrage… or post something nice, maybe you don’t blog, or maybe you do ?   I would love to hear from you.  thanks … in advance and if you don’t react, well… I forgive you (just this once ya know)…

So I do not (generally) write too much while visiting Scientist Cliffs MD but I found an exception from some work back in 2016.  I also have some short videos on my nascent YouTube account if you want to get a feel for the area. I have a go-pro now so next time I will get better video (from my kayak). Anyway… to the words!



untitled 11/2016” scientist cliffs, md

the cliffs of calvert

stone work wrought by tireless wash

lulled by wind and waves

left to ponder and erode


grottoes caverns and tiny holes

and with time and weight

tide circulates

never ceasing march

on winter or spring

or storms lashing or calm pause

thunder to crash

dawn and gentle lapse

all in and all out

all in and all out

and then back again

never ending


rocks to sand.
