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--

  The decor was Cowgirl. Hey, it was very clean, so I'm happy.

  Even in campgrounds, people are very creative.

 Young woman across from us is a traveling Physical Therapist. She travels the country in her RV and does contract work. Interesting life style.

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 little towns were all about simple pleasures. Stopped here in Hebron, bought and orange in a grocery store for 25 cents!

Heading out of town a construction worker graciously helped me with directions and gave me heads up on a couple bridges ahead.

 Vienna bridge, 1/2 mile long.

Cambridge bridge was also up ahead. A mile long, windy with enough shoulder to ride.  

  Lots of expressions of faith  along the roadways. Makes me smile.

After 75 miles and a lovely headwind, reached Easton, MD around 6:30pm.
