To celebrate this exciting engagement season of Erin & James’ life, we all met at Greenwell State Park to capture a very familiar activity: walking their pup Barkley. At least once a week, Erin & James pile in their car with Barkley & come to this park that’s only 10 minutes from their home in Southern Maryland. And this time I got to hop in & be a part of it! Barkley had me laughing so hard with his mega-athletic shenanigans attempting to steal a pepperoni treat LOL. But I can’t blame him, I’d do that for a pepperoni pizza. We first explored the yards of the historic 1880’s Rosedale Manor with its teeny tiny chapel in the front yard, then walked by the stables of goats & horses down to the rocky shoreline. Erin’s favorite part of the park, the nearly infinite dock that extends deep into the Patuxent River, made the perfect runway for Barkley. And after making sure Barkley didn’t spontaneously jump off the dock, they took his leash off along with their own boots & ran around their well-known beach nestled in tall grasses. This park really has it all – and what a perfect way to welcome the fall season :).
