If you are like me you enjoy a good hike through one of the Peninsula’s many captivating trails or heading down to the beach on a clam dig day. With Earth Day happening this Wednesday we all should take some time to celebrate the wonders of the great outdoors. It’s also a reminder that we've got some work to do.

And, after several weeks in DC, it’s a nice change of pace.
