I went camping over Labor Day weekend with Aron, Alex, Dave, and Colleen at Janes Island State Park* in Crisfield, MD. It's way down the Chesapeake side of Maryland's Eastern Shore, about 3.5 hours from DC.
It was a great trip -- the park has canoe and kayak rentals, with miles of water trails through the marshlands. Even better, you can paddle out to a really nice beach on the Chesapeake with almost nobody on it. The whole gang was there for two days, and Aron and I stayed through Tuesday to do some cycling on the flat and empty roads of the Eastern Shore. The whole area feels (culturally) like it's about 500 miles further south than it actually is.

* The lack of an apostrophe makes me twitch every time, but that's how the name is spelled. I guess there were several Janes on this particular island.
