Unsurprisingly, after the past couple of years, I’ve been feeling a little rusty.  I’m out of practice with every element of what I do.  The camera work, the blogging, the travel, the hiking…and apparently remembering to apply bug spray.

Last week, on an absolutely stunning day,  my camera and I explored Delaware for the day.  I visited a couple of favorite locations, then wandered through a few new locations, finding new trails.  I went hiking through woods and fields.  It was a perfect day.  Almost.

It WOULD have been perfect, had I remembered to apply bug repellent and not hiked through a nest of baby ticks.  I won’t go into detail.  Suffice it to say that that particular part of the day was NOT awesome.

So here’s my little Public Service Announcement: Ticks in Maryland and Delaware are especially numerous this year.  Wear bug spray.

I’ve read a few articles saying that catnip is effective against mosquitoes. I wonder if it works the same on ticks.  Anyone know?
