Weekend in Maryland

I love this picture. It’s a reverse painting on glass. The weekend after Thanksgiving, tadalafil Bill and I went to stay in a lovely place called The Inn at Perry Cabin. It’s in St. Michaels, MD. The inn was so charming, and this was one of the pictures that hung in one of the sitting rooms. There were a lot of really wonderful antique paintings hanging in the inn. I’ll show you a couple more later. We were there to celebrate a special anniversary with old friends, and the setting couldn’t have been more beautiful. The inn sits along side of the Miles River.

I can’t imagine how beautiful it must be in the summer. There is a lot of history to this little town. Land grants in the early to mid 17th century established much of the outskirts of the town. The Miles River, and probably the town of St. Michaels, were known by those names before 1658. Later in 1813, during the revolutionary war, in the dark morning hours, the British planned an attack on the tiny town, but the residents being forwarned, hoisted lanterns on the tops masts of their ships and trees, causing the British to over shoot their cannons. The first “blackout” was effective and only one cannonball penetrated the roof of one home, and rolled down the staircase as Mrs. Merchant carried her infant daughter to safety downstairs. This house still exhists and is now a private residence. These are just a couple of things I learned about the town. There is lots more, but too much to write. If you would like to read a little more, here’s a link

The dining room was so pretty. I loved the way they decorated above the mantel. The flag on the right side is the Maryland flag. I took this before dinner, before anyone was around. I didn’t want to look like a tourist, and I wanted to hurry and get all my pictures taken. This photo shows the stairway to the second floor of the inn.

I love staying at an inn. They are so different then a hotel. It’s just a homier feeling. Doesn’t this look like a corner of someone’s living room? This was in the entryway as you came in the front door to the lobby.

After we checked, we went into town. The men stopped at the pub while the woman shopped.

Love the sign that says, jewelry takes people’s minds off your wrinkles.

Now I am going to bed! I went antiquing in New Jersey today. Lots of new shops, and I got some new things for Caroles Country Store. Wonderful shops, but that’s for another day.
Happy day
Carole
