The town is actually split by the C&amp;D canal, but most of the tourist attractions are on the south side. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: small;"><span style="font-size: medium;">A ferry was once required to cross the canal, but now the suspension bridge on Route 213 allows easy access. The bridge itself is a tourist attraction, as it's high enough to allow large ships to pass underneath.&nbsp;</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">The town boast several well-known restaurants &amp; bars including The Tap Room, <a href="http://www.bayardhouse.com" target="_blank">The Bayard House</a> and <a href="http://www.chesapeakeinn.com" target="_blank">The Chesapeake Inn</a>. Schaefer's Canal House (on the north side) will be reopening under new ownership shortly. Several restaurants offer water-side dining in warmer months - and it's always a treat when the large ships pass by!</span></p> <p><a href="http://midshorelife.com/article/chesapeake-city-small-town-big-charm" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Community Life Road Trips Chesapeake City Sc Cecil Mon, 19 Mar 2012 18:59:19 +0000 Cyndi 3616 at http:// 아메리칸 룰렛 www.worldclassbookagency.com Those Bus Trip Blues https://www.google.com/http://midshorelife.com/blog/cyndi/those-bus-trip-blues <p><em>by Cyndi Paxton Johnson</em></p> <p>I'm an independent traveler - give me a map and get out of my way! I like meandering through unfamiliar places, asking the locals for input on where to go, where to stay and where to eat. &nbsp;Crowds make me nervous &ndash; and I avoid tourist traps like the proverbial plague. &nbsp;I&rsquo;ve been known to veer off main highways to make my way on unknown back roads &ndash; just to avoid sitting in traffic.&nbsp; I&rsquo;m also known for marching into kitchens, demanding better food or service.&nbsp;</p> <p><img style="margin: 7px; float: left;" src="/sites/default/files/Bus_Trip.jpg" border="0" width="285" height="150" />So why did I spend last week on a bus trip to Myrtle Beach, surrounded by women who were 20-40 years older than I?&nbsp; Love. My mom loves traveling with her Red Hat group, and invited me to go with her. I went.&nbsp; Didn&rsquo;t even complain when we had to get up at 3am to catch a 6am bus (which finally arrived 2 hours late).</p> <p>The speeding bus with harried bus driver (he had been stuck behind an accident), turned into where we were waiting, and sped by us without blinking. How he missed a group of 30 well-padded women wearing bright red and purple (and red hats!), jumping up and down amidst enough luggage to dress a small country, is beyond me. &nbsp;He finally figured out his mistake and returned.</p> <p>We loaded the luggage into the bus (the bus driver had a bad back) and claimed the seats that would be ours for the week. Mom insisted the &ldquo;Fun&rdquo; group sat near the back of the bus (can you tell she was a trouble-maker in school?) so back we trudged &ndash; carrying enough food to survive for a week. I couldn&rsquo;t fit through the aisle with all my packages &ndash; but my cousin rescued me before I was overrun by anxious women wearing purple.</p> <p>We took off to pick up the next group of Red Hatters &ndash; and I immediately flashed back to a cab ride in Boston many years ago as the driver alternately sped and slammed on the brakes for non-existent obstacles. I was suddenly grateful we hadn&rsquo;t had a big breakfast!</p> <div class="field field-type-phptext field-field-link-to-sblog"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> More of Cyndi's <a href="/a72/content/confessions-un-runner">Confessions of an Un-Runner</a> blog. </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://midshorelife.com/blog/cyndi/those-bus-trip-blues" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Humor Road Trips Wed, 22 Sep 2010 00:36:51 +0000 Cyndi 2738 at http:// 아메리칸 룰렛 www.worldclassbookagency.com INNOVATIVE NEW CHILDREN¡¯S BOOK FEATURES MARYLAND¡¯S EASTERN SHORE https://www.google.com/http://midshorelife.com/article/innovative-new-children%E2%80%99s-book-features-maryland%E2%80%99s-eastern-shore <p align="center"><strong><span style="font-size: small;"><em><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Postcards from Mr. Pish</span> Adventure Begins in Cambridge</em></span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-size: small;"><img style="border: 2px solid black; margin: 6px; float: left;" src="/sites/default/files/PostcardsfromMrPish_0.jpg" border="0" width="240" height="300" />Cambridge Books has just released <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Postcards from Mr. Pish</span>, a new children&rsquo;s book by K.

Historical Abingdon, Virginia may be your perfect getaway retreat!</p> <p><span class="inline inline-right"><img src="http://midshorelife.com/sites/default/files/images/20080515-02-060-061_0.thumbnail.jpg" alt="Abingdon, VA" title="Abingdon, VA" class="image image-thumbnail " width="175" height="200" /><span class="caption" style="width: 173px;"><strong>Abingdon, VA</strong></span></span><br /> Close your eyes and imagine gently sloping hills, dotted with sheep, cows, goats and the occasional llama. A small stream gurgles at the base of the hills, running beside an historic mill that made flour for families as early as 1790. See yourself drinking that first cup of morning coffee on the porch of a restored cabin, reveling in the laughter of the birds. The early morning mist settles below the peaks of the mountains and the calves frolic on the adjacent hill, racing each other across the green valley.</p> <p>Later, when you¡¯ve drunk your fill of beauty, serenity and coffee, you meander the four miles to the town that was originally named Wolf Hills, after wolves attacked Daniel Boone¡¯s dogs when he camped there on his first expedition to Kentucky in 1760. In 1778 the town was incorporated as Abingdon, after Martha Washington¡¯s ancestral home in England. Today the town of Abingdon, Virginia offers us history, ghosts, theatre, music, art, shopping, dining, and the great outdoors ¨C the perfect place to unwind, play, and rediscover the joy of living. I¡¯m smiling as I type, remembering the three blissful days spent in the foothills of Appalachia.</p> <div class="image-clear"></div><p><a href="http://midshorelife.com/article/everything-artists-ghosts-abingdon-virginia" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Road Trips Virginia Off Shore Sat, 31 Jan 2009 13:09:50 +0000 Cyndi 401 at http:// 아메리칸 룰렛 www.worldclassbookagency.com Poinsettia Lovers' Heaven https://www.google.com/http://midshorelife.com/article/poinsettia-lovers-heaven <p><span class="inline inline-left"><img src="http://midshorelife.com/sites/default/files/images/20081124-02-012.thumbnail.jpg" alt="Santa Tree" title="Santa Tree" class="image image-thumbnail " width="114" height="200" /><span class="caption" style="width: 112px;"><strong>Santa Tree</strong></span></span></p> <h3>Homestead Growers/Gardens</h3> <h4>By: John K Johnson</h4> <p>The <a href="http://www.midshorecoop.com" target="_new">Mid-Shore Homeschool Cooperative</a> took a field trip last Monday to Homestead Growers, to see one of the largest independent, single-location garden centers in the United States.
