Mid-Week Getaway: Day 2 – Aitch and Trough Creek State Park
The morning of Wednesday, March 23, we did some sightseeing. Our first stop was at Aitch, where an old railroad bed has been transformed into a fishing pier. We parked in the parking area and walked across the fishing pier.
I read that Aitch is a great place for birdwatching. We saw only seagulls.
Our second stop was at Copperas Rock in Trough Creek State Park. Copperas Rock is a large overhang along the Great Trough Creek. These rocks are located directly adjacent to the park road.
Our next stop was at the Balanced Rock Trail.
We walked over the Great Trough Creek, via a suspension bridge that moves as you walk across it.
It started to rain. We walked back over the bridge and returned to the car.
We plan to make a return trip to the park tomorrow. The forecast is for better weather tomorrow morning and for most of the afternoon.
We left the park via forest roads and made our way to Mamie’s Cafe and Bakery in Martinsburg.
Mamie’s Cafe was recommended to us by our Airbnb hosts. Bob ordered a toasted Reuben sandwich; I had a toasted ham and cheese sandwich. Both sandwiches were served with a pickle and chips. We walked out of the cafe with homemade no bake cookies. This was a good recommendation. The food and service were excellent.
After lunch we returned to our Airbnb rental, where we stayed for rest of the afternoon and evening. How did we spend our afternoon and evening? Bob took a nap. I uploaded a few pictures to Facebook. I started reading a book on my Kindle. For dinner we ate leftover fried chicken, pasta salad and potato salad.

That is a really nice picture of you standing with Balanced Rock in the background.
Wonderful photos from your trip, the park looks beautiful. Great shot of you. The cafe sounds nice, I like the mural too. Take care, enjoy your day and week ahead.
