Back from mini-vacation

Well, Heather and I just got back a little while ago from our mini-vacation. We spent Friday and Saturday night at a bed in breakfast in a small town called St. Michael's near the coast of the Chesapeake Bay. It was sooooooo relaxing. It was a very sleepy little town. There is a main street with lots of shops and tourist traps. There were a number of restaurants, but nothing fantastic. Most of them were seafood restaurants, so Heather and I had to look around for someplace that served chicken and pork chops. We did find a place, but the food was ehhhhh... The desserts were fantastic, though! Warm chocolate cake and chocolate mousse. Mmmmm...

There really wasn't much to do, so we spent a lot of time relaxing and taking it easy. We toured the entire downtown in a few hours on Friday evening. Then Saturday, we went to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. We didn't have too much time to see stuff because we booked a boat ride up through one of the rivers. It was very much like the Lake Geneva boat rides we went to in Wisconsin. There was some narration explaining the nearby towns, and identifying some of the expensive houses lining the shore.

This picture of Heather is at the Robert Morris Inn, former home of Robert Morris, one of the major financiers of the US Revolution. He was also one of only two people to sign the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, and the Articles of Confederation. Unfortunately, the burgers at his inn did not live up to his name. They were greasy and untasty. Ah well...
