Geography Flutecake style

I have been so busy, no time to post here, lately! Well, I will try to do better!

Talking to blog pals AAP, I was trying to describe things geographically around here. I came up with this web site..

The C & D canal

The Chesapeake & Delaware Canal runs 14 miles long, 450 feet wide and 35 feet deep across Maryland and Delaware, connecting the Delaware River with the Chesapeake Bay and the Port of Baltimore. It was opened for traffic back in 1829. Now, it carries about 40% of the container ship traffic into the Port of Baltimore.

Here's the real fun page that shows near real time traffic on the canal! Very fun!
