Eastern Shore

We decided to adventure across the Bay Bridge and into...or would that be onto?  the Eastern Shore!
The Bay Bridge is huge...looks like several bridges sewn together to me.  Anyway, if you go be sure to bring your $4 for the toll!
The weather was sunny and bright...but COLD!

We stopped in Easton first.  The drive didn't take very long and it was so pretty.  There are so many farms and open land...very nice.  

The yarn shop in Easton was closed (after all it was a holiday...and a monday).

 I'd like to return to see the inside...but I won't rush to get here at!
 We then drove to St. Michaels to check it out.  It's only another 5 miles or so from Easton.  It was make a lovely bike ride in warmer weather. 
Lo and behold: an ice cream shop called Justine's! 
 I promised Justine we'd return when the weather improves.
 And....the yarn shop in St. Michaels was open!  The shop was very nice...warm and friendly.  There were tons of knitted items on display which was so nice.  I saw several shawls (patterns I know from Ravelry) that had beads.  Oh boy!

 I bought a skein of sock yarn from a company in PA called Crabapple.
 After lunch at Margaritaville, we drove home.


  1. It looks like a fantastic area! Lots of great shops too. I love the sign that says they open "around" 12:30. I've love to be able to have those hours (and survive)!

  2. So happy to see that you and the fam are living it up, up north. I sure do miss you down south...Love your new sweater!! Hugs coming your way!
