Another City by The Bay (trip to Maryland's Eastern Shore)

We're headed up to Maryland's Eastern Shore this weekend to visit Mr. Southern's parents. I love going up there- it is such a relaxing getaway. And having grown up for a good chunk of my life in Maryland- I definitely feel a sense of pride in the Chesapeake Bay.

Appropriately, my latest Vineyard Vines catalog arrived yesterday and the entire catalog, I believe, was shot along the Eastern shore.  One of their stops was St. Michaels- just over the bridge from Tilghman Island (where we'll be staying).  

St. Michaels, in addition to beautiful bay views, offers lots of great shopping and dining options. I hope to offer you more photos over the weekend!

Meanwhile, this will be our view in the morning, out of the back of the house- with hopefully a brighter sky.  And minus the Shallop of course (boat on the left).  The Shallop and its crew stopped by 2 years ago to retrace Captain John Smith's 1608 expedition.

Have a beautiful day!



  1. Beautiful photos!

  2. I can't wait to see you this weekend!!!! Yay for visit:)

  3. Take some time to go up to Chestertown! They are selling T-shirts with one of my illos at the Farmer's Market on Saturday! Another naked lady!
    Have fun!

  4. Jean- I love it! Need to figure out how far that is- I was thinking of you and the Chestertown Spy. Did you know that the state of Alabama has banned the wine Cycles Gladiator because of the nude nymph on the label? Turns out it's been great PR for the wine.

    Sarah- so excited to see you too!!

  5. have fun, safe travels this weekend!

  6. Oh, I love this part of the country. My family used to live in Annapolis so these are all old stomping grounds of mine. Have a great time!

  7. The Eastern Shore is beautiful and full of all kinds of birds. So many people don't even know that the Shore exists. I used to live on the VA end of for six years and didn't want to leave. My two oldest friends live there.

    I enjoyed the visit :)

  8. Ohhh looks so beautiful... ANd fun! x

  9. Oh I envy you! The Eastern Shore is wonderful! The east coast is fantastic, and any shore anywhere wins me over! Have fun!
