We had big plans today. After all, it’s Saturday. There was a pretty good chance of rain, but we decided to be optimistic. We loaded up the kayaks in a light rain. Then we drove in a moderate rain. Then a heavy rain. By the time we reached the Eastern Shore, it was clear that we would not be kayaking. So, we made a brief stop at an Outlet Mall. Then we had a nice lunch at *gasp* a Chain restaurant. Our next stop was a Quilt Store! After all, I am collecting Row by Row patterns, and time is almost up. Quilt Vine in Trappe, MD is an adorable little shop. They have loads of samples made up, and the shop is nice and bright as they specialize in modern quilts. I was very tempted by a few of their patterns, but I’m still on a fabric diet, so I resisted temptation. Stop in when you’re on the way to Ocean City.
We also had to make an emergency trip to Wal Mart of all places. I had packed my crocheting as my project for the trip, and I failed to include the crochet hook. Then we checked into our hotel, changed clothes, and headed in the direction of our dinner reservation. We took a side trip to Tilghman Island, to kill some time, and to make sure we knew where we need to be early tomorrow morning. We’re taking a little Lighthouse Cruise out on the Bay!
The picture above shows the lovely skies we had today. And if you click on the lower picture, and get out a magnifying glass, you can see a lighthouse. I took this with my best lens, but I didn’t crop it for a reason. We’ll be getting up close and personal with that lighthouse tomorrow. It’s been leaning for several years, and experts predict that after another hard winter or two, it will fall over.
This is as close as the boats got to water today. We knew we were taking a risk, but we figured if we came down without them, the sun would shine all day and we would have regrets.
The sky was starting to clear up after dinner, and the prediction for tomorrow is a pretty, sunny day.
We had a fantastic dinner at Bistro St. Michaels. It was a bit of a splurge, but oh so worth it!
Now I must go try out my new crochet hook for a few minutes, and then get some sleep. We need to be up early tomorrow for our adventure!

P.S. I can’t remember when I’ve seen gas this cheap!
