I know this is a Crisfield blog, but I thought I would add a few non-Crisfield photos from my little road trip. Be sure and click on photos to enlarge. Best viewed at 1280x1024 or higher.
I saw this father and daughter walking along the railroad tracks in Princess Anne. I love to see people walking on railroad tracks, especially when the light is right.
No road trip could be complete without seeing old motel signs and reminiscing about the old days. I saw this while passing through Seaford, and liked it so much I did a little mini-essay for you.
Ah, the good old days.
On the way home, we stopped to visit our chicken friends, and pick up some eggs.
We have been vegetarians for almost 30 years, and for almost that long we have been seeking out someone who had free roaming chickens, with the stipulation that they did not eat their chickens.
About two months ago, we found a wonderful couple who keep a few chickens as pets. We grilled them (no pun intended) for about twenty minutes, and satisfied that their chickens were indeed pets that had names, we went away with two dozen brown eggs. I teased them that I knew the faces of each chicken and the rooster, and expected to see the same faces each time we returned for our booty.
This is the nice little house our chickens live in. There are also two ducks, also pets, so we have been enjoying duck eggs as well. You can see the ducks in the the back by the fence, on the left side.
Road trip over, I arrived home to find a package from my new blogger friend in China. I had my husband carefully unwrap the package, taking pictures of the beautiful paper.
Two weeks ago I received some wonderful jam from Reggie Girl, another blogger friend I met shortly after starting up my blog.
Isn't it nice that people from all over the world can come together and share ideas and gifts through the Internet?
Speaking of ideas, this Friday is "My Town Shoot Out" day. We featured churches last week. This Friday, it is the people who make our towns a wonderful place to live.
It is nice to be back in Crisfield. No hassles, no traffic, and we can still see the stars at night!
