We've returned from our trip to St. Michaels!
The weather was a warm, comfortable temperature for the whole visit, but there were some wild thunderstorms and a little flooding. To be expected this close to the water, I suppose? Many of the roads had ditches cut beside them to hold excess water and runoff so the sidewalks and roads were in good shape again pretty quick.
Most of our time in St. Michaels was spent walking around town. There are a ton of cute shops (we saw one with handmade three-dimensional wooden maps of various coastlines around the world) and lots of places to eat. I was impressed that one of the restaurants, Ava's Pizzeria, even offered a vegan cheese and veggie pizza!
We spent a lot of time in the water too, since our B & B had a great pool. They also upgraded our room to a suite with a soaker tub next to the bed. It was awesome! I've never used one, but my pregnant self loved all the space and how light I felt. Super relaxing!
On our last day, we took a short ferry ride to the nearby town of Oxford to explore and eat lunch at the Robert Morris Inn. This is the oldest tavern still being used as a tavern in North America (so we were told - couldn't find that in writing anywhere) and interesting to look around. The tavern portion looked as you'd imagine - slate floors, lots of brick, and a big fireplace to huddle around in the winter. Cozy :)
While in Oxford, we visited the Scottish Highlands Creamery which came highly recommended. They only take cash and we had $6 between the two of us, so that made our decision easy since a Double is exactly $6! Plus a Double is actually four scoops of ice cream in one bowl - confused us too! - so we each selected two flavors and shared. Mr. G chose Red Raspberry Coconut and Birthday Cake and I picked Chocolate and Cookie Dough. It was the best ice cream I've ever had and came close for Mr. G - he gave it his #2 spot! We had a great view while we indulged.
And to cap it off, we're returning to work for a short week - since the 4th of July (Independence Day) is on Saturday, we have Friday off! Yippee :)
Had any good ice cream lately? Have you tried a supersize soaker tub?
