We Are Back!

We just got back from one of our yummy three day two nights away vacays...lol...it's as long as I am willing to leave Lucy and Roxie for now...I seriously don't think Lucy eats while we are away...and that is a worry. Our cat sitter is so good with them but Lucy hides...fusses over her pill...and again...I don't think she eats...Roxie is a little crazy when we are gone...the sitter sent me a movie of her somersaulting all over her and actually holding on to her...my girls do not do well without us...for sure.

We went to Oxford Maryland..about 2/12 hours away...such a sweet town...it's known for its white fences...almost every amazing house that we saw had a white picket fence. Our hotel was really unique...we sat outside and read for hours...and I walked on shells on the little beach...and we watched big boats and tiny little sailboats...in sailing school. You could tell they were little kids...it looked liked Sailing School recess...too cute and funny! This is from our upstairs screened in porch...we read there, too!

Lots of shells!
Beach...
This is the Beach Shack...it's filled with iced water and snacks and is air conditioned and had a TV! When we got hot we popped inside!
There was an osprey living in the trees by the inn...it caught fish while we watched!
The fences!
 
More fences...
The town of Oxford is old and small...it's two hours from Washington and there are magnificent homes there...big and small...all with this quaint beachy feel...we ate here each night...two minutes from our hotel...it was incredible! And now we are "regulars"...lol!
I know...surrounded by water and we ate meat! But...I don't eat scallops or swordfish...and I only eat steak rare...really rare...and we had crab cakes last night. We had the best time at dinner last night...the inn was empty except for us and two really lovely elderly couples...one couple was celebrating their 53rd anniversary so we celebrated with them...they were so sweet...they told us all about Oxford...they divide their time between Oxford and Vero Beach...he was very handsome and a retired doctor but so fragile looking...I just wanted to hug him! He gave us the scoop on where to get the best martinis...and that we should look for a cute cottage in town...I cannot say enough how much we loved it there!
 
One last water view...
Well maybe just one more...
Finished this...have you heard of this book? It's based on a young boy's mental health issues...it was so good...apparently the author based it on what happened to his son...parts were so sad!
Sorry about the photos...this town was just so unique!
I am outta here!

  3. Sounds like a really nice place to visit. So who had what on that plate? I am guessing you had the rare beef.
