If the Imperial ground forces were to make their way up the Chesapeake Bay, we’d be out of luck. With AT-AT’s standing 74 feet tall and the average depth of the Bay being only 21 feet, they’d be able to get around! If a stormtrooper were 6 feet tall, they alone would be able to wade through more than 700,000 acres of the Bay and never get their helmet wet. BUT if we want to lure the AT-AT into a trap, we just have to get it southeast of Annapolis near Bloody Point, where “The Hole” and is 174 feet deep. Happy #StarWars Day everyone! #MayTheFourth be with you! #SaveTheBay

#swampwalk quarantine isolation day 417 (t-minus 3 days to antibodies)

Hot today, this morning it was feeling like the mid 80sF.

#bogsafari- saw WR bringing home another sweet short term corgi foster. We chatted at range for a few minutes. Other critters seen were a few distant pedestrians with dogs. Once in the swamp proper, there was a host of insects and songbirds. Hopefully the latter will keep the former in reasonable numbers. Leaf cover is dandy for shade but is to the point where it cuts wind considerably.

Looks like the pothead kids left some trash behind. I recognize the drink bottles and they are right where they were sitting last time I saw them. I should bring a garbage bag on my next walk, along with a nail on a stick. I am disappointed, not because they were smoking weed in the woods, but littering doesnt cut it. https://bit.ly/3nTVfc0 https://bit.ly/3nMQPTZ
