Day 132 - Easton, Maryland

Bartlett Pear Inn
Mabel's Bakery
I'm on a road trip!  My friend Norma and I headed for the Eastern Shore of Maryland, knowing that the weather today was supposed to be quite mild.

We made our first stop in Easton at the Amish Market.  That is the place I would shop if I wanted good meats and fresh produce.  Great stuff!

Then we walked in downtown Easton, which is the county seat of Talbot, finding first a farmer's market, where we worked on macro shots of water droplets on cabbages.  Norma recently bought the same camera I have, so I was giving her some tips on using it.

We walked along the streets, finding quaint shops and historic buildings, then headed for the courthouse area to find lunch.  We ate at the Washington Street Pub -- I highly recommend the shrimp corn chowder.  In the lobby of the pub was a chandelier and mirrors, so I worked long at getting a good repeating shot without having myself in the photo.

After lunch we walked back to the farmer's market, then drove to Cambridge to tour the Blackwater Refuge.  The area was extremely foggy, despite the sun blazing overhead.  It just could not burn off the mist.  It made for perfect light!  I've shared one of those photos here, since technically it was not part of my walk.

Tomorrow we'll be in Chestertown for a morning walk, when the temps promise to be in the 60's.  I love a good road trip!
