We are taking you to southern Maryland. You have your choice ...
Horse & buggy ... or ...
this hot classic beauty. Ready? Let's go ...
I love crossing this bridge. It spans so beautifully across the bay ...
The girls are all greeting us on the pier
Love this beautiful Victorian home nestled
amongst the small sea village scape.
You see the briars, brambles &
bushes surrounding quaint homes ...
tucked here & there ...
amongst the trees ...
& fields ...
where the farms are still alive ...
but quiet for winter's rest ...
the terrain is relatively flat compared to our 'mountainous' region ...
These are the birthday cupcakes we brought with us for a very special loved lady ...
Marie we met nearly 20 years ago. Our daughter has a lawn service, doing some work for Marie. We fell in love with this sweet lady, becoming fast friends forever.
Marie moved to Florida for awhile. We went to see her there, taking Joshua with us.
Her birthday was this week so the trip was perfect.
Marie hence moved back to Maryland. A few times we wished to go see her health issues for us, or her, hindered this.
We had the most wonderful visit. Love her to pieces.
She looks gorgeous.
The countryside is filled with wonderful
sights, structures & skies.
We wondered if these barns were live stock or tobacco barns. Tobacco was a major crop in southern Maryland.
Some of the farms look abandoned, the overgrowth gives way to beautiful scenes.
Love the patriotism on this wee barn.
Now you KNOW we had to stop & view these canons for Harold.
These canons are many thousands of $$$ if authentic, which Harold said they are.
This is an awesome view about 2 blocks from Marie's home.
Very picturesque marina against the evening sky.
The Christmas tree in the gazebo didn't come out well but pretty with the sunset approaching on the left.
A beautiful church nestled in the middle of town.
Sunset at another marina
Slowly dusk approaches this inlet
As peace settles over the earth
Gently filling the sky
Rich sunlight tucked sweetly behind the
cloud filled sky
As God richly paints the most elegant of skies as the sun gently shadows in each color (center screen you can see soft yellow circle reflections)
