Let's take a trip!


AH! So blogger works on husbands computer! Let's see how long this works! I realized I didn’t do an update on our weekend in Easton! It was husbands Spring Break and we decided to take a mini vacay to the Easter Shore of Maryland. Luckily, it is only about an hour and a half drive away so we could go to church, have a nice lunch, and leisurely make our way to Easton. But of course we had to stop at the outlets first! What’s a vacation without some new duds huh?! We got Mister a whole new outfit plus a couple extras and I got a pretty green dress and white textured jacket. Chris thinks it’s so funny that I love a bargain. I mean who doesn’t!? (We got 40% extra off our purchase!) Then we made our way to the Tidewater Inn in Easton.
We found it, and it was SO cute! Chris was relieved since I had been pretty sparse on the details. We ate across the street at Banning’s Tavern for dinner, Mister had the Sheppard’s Pie and I had some good ole clam chowder. After a few after dinner drinks we were ready to climb into our luxurious king bed.
The next day we hopped on our bikes (provided) and pedaled our way to St. Michaels. Oh wait, no, no we didn’t. We pedaled all the way to Oxford. Lo and behold our brochures told us the ferry was open in March. Nope, that baby is closed till April! AH!  



So we biked 10 miles just to turn around and drive our tired tushes to St. Michaels for a wine tasting. At least we got a really good work out! We were also expecting some scenic views but we were definitely biking down a highway! Oh well! The wine tasting was totally worth it though! We went to St. Michaels Winery and we got two free tastings and every additional was only $1! We ended up buying 4 bottles of wine, one for our good friend in Belgium. (Who I heard through the grapevine (ha!) was bringing us something back!) Then we walked around and went through every little shop that was open and then found some late lunch sushi.
We went back and had ourselves a little nap! That’s what a 20 mile bike ride, wine and food will do to a girl! We then went to grab some delicious BBQ from The BBQ Joint. I had the pulled pork (natch) and Mister had ribs. Both were so good! Not exactly like back home but a good contender!
The next day we walked around then packed up and headed home. All that eating out made me homesick and ready for some of my own food. I forgot! Our breakfast was included and we both had eggs Benedict, pancakes or an omelet both mornings! All in all it was a great break from the norm and so nice to get away with just the Mister! Happy Travels!
