St. Michaels

Gerred's family is visiting Maryland for the next two weeks for his graduation. So while Gerred's busy with commissioning week duties, I've been taking everyone around Maryland to sight see. On Sunday, Mom, Majella and Gerome traveled across the Bay Bridge to visit St. Michaels, a historic little town on the Chesapeake Bay.

For lunch, we ate at The Crab Claw and had Majella and Gerome try different types of seafood from the bay. We had fried oysters, steamed oysters (full shell with mud included,) steamed shrimp, and crab dip. Yum. Remember though I'm dieting so I tried to only eat a few steamed shrimp and clams and stuck to my salad.

After lunch we explored St. Michaels some more. There was so many historical buildings that dated mainly back to the 1800s. There was a historic boat that belonged to Captain John Smith and a neat graveyard with some odd quotes about death. After that we went and traveled from store to store peaking in at the cute little odds and ends inside before heading back home.

I'll probably be stopping by again this summer or to other cute little towns in Maryland.
