Fall Foliage, Day 59 - Felton, Delaware, to Greenbelt, Maryland + Silver Springs, MD

My early bed-time worked out well as Alfie once again started moving around at about 7:30. I respect a dog with a schedule :)

We went for a quick potty walk, and on our return I started cleaning the inside of Harvey to get ready to go today. Alfie supervised from his bed/the beanbag alternately. He didn’t eat much of his breakfast, but did finish his meds (not hard since they’re stuffed inside hot dog pieces).

More cleaning, dish-washing, and catching up on blog posts before Christian woke up and we started moving out.

Alfie settled right down - the width of the RV means there’s just enough space for his bed in between our chairs.

We got to cross the Bay Bridge - it was gorgeous! This was one of the shortest drives we’ve had (just under 2 hours, almost entirely on highways) and Greenbelt Park was super easy to find.

Once we chose our spot and figured out how to pay (half-price thanks to our America the Beautiful Annual Pass), we unpacked and relaxed a little. There are lots of unseen little critters rustling around in the brush by our spot, so Alfie was on high alert, at least until dinner time.

After dog dinner, we made a stop at Petsmart for a jacket for Alfie since it would be getting down around freezing while we were out. Then we all drove to downtown Silver Springs, specifically a sort of outdoor food court, for human dinner at Lebanese Taverna. I decided that shawarma is not a replacement for gyros - the texture was too different.

There happened to be an event in the square we were in that night.

We posed for a family picture, had a few samples, and then watched the tree lighting - complete with confetti/streamer cannons!

After a little warming up at a restaurant’s outdoor fireplace, we headed back to the car to kill time until Thomas (our local friend and delivery-address-loaner) was back home. Once he was, we caught up a little, shared some banana bread, and loved on Alfie.

After a little package wrangling to get everything in the car, we headed back to the campground for bed. Alfie finally has an actual crate instead of a chair barricade!
