May 5, 2011 These are some houses along the water in St. Michaels, Maryland. I think I am getting a little too cynical in my dotage. I still look at hilly fields and wonder how they would be in the winter, if they would be good for sledding or if the grasses would become a drag factor. This is good, because we have lived in Florida for almost 20 years and the snow days here have been very few and far between... Now I look at these enviable houses, with their well-tended gardens, lacy gingerbread, inviting sleeping porches and their water views and wonder how much their flood insura...

April 18, 2011 This is St. Michaels, Maryland, from the water, with a view of the wedding cake-like lighthouse and the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. With the warmer weather finally upon the Eastern Shore it is time to take advantage of the great outdoors and the many opportunities to paddle about in the water. We saw some ducklings this weekend, having a giddy time getting their bearings under the strict tutelage of their parental units. We also saw some ospreys working on new home construction - it looks like spring is finally here!

You can learn how to build boats here, which is something I wouldn't mind doing in the perfect life I have planned out in my head. It's that Laura Ingalls Wilder/Jo March feeling I get sometimes. In the meantime, I was ambling around the Museum's boatyard, admiring their fleet and the elegance of other people's skills and hard work. It is a great destination.

April 5, 2011 We kept a hurried pace while touring Talbot County on the Eastern Shore. We made a quick stop at the Village Shoppe in St. Michaels (no apostrophe, my dear editors) for sustaining Diet Cokes and chocolate chip cookies. There is some logic there, truly. In the inviting outdoor garden section I was seized with an irrational longing for the willow tuteurs tucked behind some massive cobalt planters. It wasn't enough that I was wandering headily among the pots of cyclamen, tulips, jonquils and hyacinths. I had to plot how I could get an unwieldy 5-foot tall willow frame ho...
