The Maryland Blue Crab

Hello & Happy Sunday!

Hope everyone had a fun filled weekend!
We surely did!

We were in Maryland celebrating our anniversary!
After 26 years with this man he surprised me with a long weekend get away which was definitely MUCH NEEDED! We stayed right on the water and spent most our evenings watching sunsets & the boats coming & going. It was super relaxing and just what the doctor ordered! I can't tell you just how nice it was to get away and enjoy some downtime with Shawn although the mosquito's were bad and of course bit the daylights out of me, I still had a fabulous time! 

I knew a few days ahead of time that we were going away and once I seen the photo's of where we were going I spied this picture hanging on a wall in the studio apartment. I was inspired by that photo to create a Thank You card for the owners. 

Here is the picture and my photo of the card....

I was tickled to pieces that my card looked just like the picture and can you believe that I left without letting my card there! It will be sent out in the mail tomorrow.

Thank You Card:

Stamps: By The Seashore (retired), inside sentiment from Amuse
Ink: Versamark, Night of Navy
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Accessories: Winter White EP, Heat Gun, 2 Sided Tape

The apartment we stayed in was all done in a nautical theme thru out the bedroom, living room, kitchen & bathroom. Everything was super nice except I could have done without the bug bites! We had 2 docks to fish/crab off of, a pool to use and another day it stormed so we just kinda toured the area and went out for a fish & chips supper at a local place that came highly recommended. Another day we went to Ocean City for the afternoon and of course we had to get some Thrasher's French Fries, a funnel cake and some Fisher's Popcorn for the return trip back to PA. We totally blew our dieting out of the water but it was a fun time!

Our view in the evenings...


These are pictures of the Bay Bridge that goes over the Chesapeake Bay. I have never gone across this bridge much less seen it in person and all I could say is "WOW"! Shawn was a nervous wreck going across it because he does not like heights.

The view of the marina across the water from us was so pretty & peaceful.
 I told Shawn this was the highlight of my trip!

This was a metal figure that was on one of the dock posts. I thought it was pretty cool!

And that's a few pictures of our anniversary get away!
It was amazing, fun & just perfect....just like my Buppie!


Haha, that's right!

That's all I have for today!
Laundry is waiting on me!

Thanks for stopping by & have a terrific day!

Oh, I was in MD last week too, but you were much farther south than we were, but it's still a great state to vacation in! We love OC as well as Rehoboth, DE!!! Your card is perfect for the owners' thank you...very clever and they will treasure it, I'm sure! Glad you're back and I hope you left the mosquitoes down there!
