Continuing Down the Road


So, where was I.....Oh yes, back in the Baltimore area...... at Jackie's house... ;)
We decided to go into Annapolis on Tuesday. I had never been to this historic town. I am in love with old buildings, roads & the ability to bridge time by being in the same place as our ancestors.
We had a great lunch by the water & a great *walkabout* in town.



The streets were narrow and I could almost see ladies walking with their baskets over their arms and bonnets on.
This is "Shiplap House"....built in the 1700s...use to be an old tavern....where our Forefather's ate, drank and told jokes.




Here I am at the MD state house...where George Washington held council....pretty cool huh!! It's the oldest state capitol still in use....and quite beautiful. I love that it was built using only wooden pegs!! Imagine.
The lightening rod was designed by Benjamin Franklin.....Woo...history!

Then Jackie took me down a passage way that lead from one street to the next....If these bricks could talk...
Or....If I could look this good after 400 years ;)


Soon enough it was time to head back to Jackie's house & to get ready for the next morning's 6am flight.

I had an amazing trip back East!!
I will look forward to next year and more adventures....but for now, it's out to the workshop for me....Orders Await....Gratefully!
Check out these Sweet Peas...and pea pods....Jack in the Beanstalk....for sure!!

I love the history that you so easily run into back there. (But then, it IS home...) Glad you enjoyed your trip, and your daughter looks smashing in that scarf!

Well, Missy, it looks like you've had one amazing journey and have had some most excellent times. I'd be envious, if I weren't so happy for you. Thanks for the journey!

I love Annapolis! My husband went to school there and he gave me the walking tour. :)
