Experiencing Calvert Cliffs

The Baltimore Sun’s The Darkroom section has a great post on Calvert Cliffs State Park with 30 photos and a short video. From the post:

“The Calvert Cliffs, which rise over 100 feet along 30 miles of the Calvert County eastern coastline, are eroding at a pace of nearly three feet a year, spilling secrets from their clay-rich soil of the world, as it was 15 million years ago during the Miocene era.”

150th Annual Calvert County Jousting Tournament (August 27th)

Ring JoustingI did a post about ring jousting in Maryland. Well, the people of Calvert County are serious about jousting so mark your calendars! The 150th Annual Calvert County Jousting Tournament takes place at noon on Saturday, August 27th, 2016 in Port Republic, MD. More information can be found on the tournament’s Facebook page or from the Maryland Jousting Tournament Association.

The event is being held at the Christ Church and includes a day of activities before and after the tournament. There will be a church bazaar, an indoor concert and their Annual Country Supper (details here). Good sport, good food and good music all in one place!
