Heading to Easton, MD. I really want to visit St. Michael's and there is no camping. Motel required. Easton is 10 miles from St. Michaels, easy ride and more affordable than St. Michaels ($300-$400 a night in B&B!)
Before we leave the campground needed a couple memories--
First stop is Princess Anne, MD to have breakfast, the hogendoz ice cream bar was delicious! This house looked so peaceful. Turns out it is a home for mentally challenged folks. A quiet little town looking after those who need a little extra help. Lovely.
This morning's ride was so beautiful. One of the best of the trip. Country roads that twisted and turned and every bend was calm and green. A local ferry carried me across the river. Louis Kennedy has been operating the ferry and shared about other ferries in the area. Seemed very provincial and a nice break in my morning. After 6:00pm everyday you are out of luck. Just have to stay put till 9:00am the next day.
The rest of the morning was more country.
Heading out of town a construction worker graciously helped me with directions and gave me heads up on a couple bridges ahead.
Cambridge bridge was also up ahead. A mile long, windy with enough shoulder to ride.
After 75 miles and a lovely headwind, reached Easton, MD around 6:30pm.
