Welcome to Borrow Pit Adventures!

There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line:


Taking a look at life, literature, and little things for your reading and viewing pleasure.  Maryland is our base camp but the world is our home.

I know, corny.

The Great Blue Heron

We see them often in the Chesapeake Bay estuary. A magnificent bird in flight or when peeking along the shallows for fish and frogs.

A hidden inlet on Assawoman Bay

Yes, the name of this beautiful cove is unusual, believed to be of Native American  origin. (Note that some prefer "First Nations" to identify those who were here before Western "discovery".)

Becky's Mini Cooper Countryman

Parked along the Blackwater River at the Refuge.  Love this manual, AWD hatchback, but Ken thinks it's too bumpy.  Personally, I like to feel the road underneath!
