I went to this town for the first time and discovered a place I will certainly return to for a few reasons. It had very good food. It had wonderful sights. It looked like an interesting community as we drove through it’s many side streets. It has a great resort hotel in the Hyatt and I hear also some good bed and breakfast spots. It has friendly people. It’s easy to get to and and get around in.
It is the past struggling to move into the future. It’s the present trying to preserve its past. It’s one of the jewels of the Eastern Shore. And it seems to be a secret. Because this was a beautiful fall weekend and there were some significant events and it wasn’t crowded at all.
I love the mixture of boatyards and old main street stores.
It has both Age.
And it has youth. Who have their own modes of transportation.
The Hyatt resort was a wonderful place to stay. Not that I can afford to do that regularly or for any long period of time.
It has two hour parking on allot of streets but the merchants told me it wasn’t enforced.
It has a few old church’s that were photogenic.
I used to know allot of wonderful people who worked at the Star Democrat.
There are a number of good places to eat. We choose Jimmy and Sook’s for our first meal and it was very good. Service was great and the food was very tasty.
So motor on down to High Street and walk the brick street.
Keep your eyes open or you might just pass an interesting alley without seeing a treasure.
I wish I didn’t see as many empty store fronts as I did.
Open windows and a beer/ale, what’s not to love.
With the breeze off the river its a great spot to fly a kite.
I was impressed with the artistic galleries and craft stores. Make sure you pay them all a visit and find your personal treasures to take home.
