Mallow Bay, The Ships Graveyard…

Growing up on the Potomac River, I never knew about this beautiful and historic spot. This beautiful park is located along the Potomac River in Charles County, Maryland is the final resting place of many abandoned ships. Many of them were built during WWI for the US military, however the order was finished way to late and many were poorly built. So they were laid to rest. Today the bay is a popular fishing spot. The park contains a walking trail along the river and through the surrounding wooded area as well as a small boat launch. Majority of the graveyard is best viewed via kayak or canoe, but enough can be seen from the water’s edge for a fun and relaxing afternoon taking pictures.
