Homage to Home

This past weekend I went home to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I was there to begin planning my wedding. While meeting with florists, caterers, tent people etc... I began to get really excited about all of our out of town guests coming to Talbot County. Although not large, the Eastern Shore boasts 600 miles of shoreline on some of the prettiest rivers in the country. The Tred Avon, Wye, Miles, and Choptank to name a few. A walk downtown in Easton, St. Michael's or Oxford invites a lesson in Victorian , Federal, Beaux Arts, and 20Th century architecture. Gorgeous picnic boats line the docks and fabulous restaurants and shops are filled with DC Politicos and lunching ladies. Talbot County proves itself to be a very chic place for those escaping the lime light.
