A Crabby Visit

St. Michaels, Tilghman Island, Easton

When it’s hot in the city … time to go to the shore! We hopped aboard N8475Y — only about a 40-min. flight — and flew over to the lovely Eastern Shore of Maryland. Though we’ve been over there many times, it was our first real visit to St. Michaels. Though getting around during these COVID-19 times is odd at best, we had a very enjoyable visit. Our hotel employed excellent safety practices, as did all of the places we visited; we felt very safe. (See Bob’s short video, above.)

We also enjoyed visiting Tilghman Island — we had last been there sometime in the late 1980s. I particularly liked our lunch spot, just below the Knapps-Narrows Drawbridge that connects Tilghman to the mainland and St. Michaels. Loved seeing not only the pleasure boats, but also the many working watermen boats.

This area is famous for blue crab, so of course we had to sample as much as possible! I don’t think it gets much fresher than this … how could it?! We enjoyed seeing so many historic homes and buildings throughout the area, including Easton. We are so fortunate to live so close to the Chesapeake Bay.
