Memorial Day at the Shore!

As soon as the "school bell" let out on Friday, Kern and I were in the car headed to the Shore to celebrate Memorial Day weekend.  The first day we were there, we experienced wind like I've never known!  It was too cold and windy to do much outside...so we went to downtown Cambridge, stopped in at the local produce stand and spent time cooking, reading and watching baseball on TV.


I never get tired of watching the sun set here!


Sunday was sunnier and the wind finally slowed down enough for us to take a two hour bike ride then spend the afternoon and evening in St. Michael's.

Our first stop was Eastern Shore Brewing where we sampled the local beers while watching the foot traffic on South Talbot Street.



I love walking up and down the historic town streets - intermingled in the ice cream shops and modern retails stores are reminders of early American history.


"I'll take one of each, please..."




We ended the evening at St. Michael's Crab and Steak House for dinner and watched the end of the sunset. 



Monday was even nicer and proved perfect for yet another bike ride through the countryside exploring the "Neck District."  There is something about an open field that just makes me feel happy.


We paused for a water stop and to watch the fishermen on the spillway.


And in closing: please do not forget to thank those in your life who have served (or who are serving) our country.  It is because of them that we have the freedoms we so cherish.
