I just got back from a great weekend hanging out with Daryle and our two friends, Dylan and Erin. We went exploring in Easton, which is part of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. It’s a perfect weekend trip outside of Washington; only two hours away in a charming historic area filled with adorable boutiques restaurants. We stayed at the Tide Water Inn, a wonderful private hotel in the heart of downtown Easton.

Daryle DJ’d a wedding in Saint Micheal’s and Dylan helped Daryle with the event. Erin and I went exploring around town.

Easton’s local coffee house is the Coffee Cat. When the sun sets, its sister shop, the Night Cat opens with live music.

Erin and I had the most delicious dinner at Mason’s (not pictured) which is part restaurant, part chocolate shop. The service was warm and friendly and the entrees were mouth wateringly good. Mason’s even has a lovely selection of $20 bottle of wines. Don’t mind if we do!

On the way back to DC, we stopped at one of the dozen produce stands.

Mmm, summer corn! Who’s that guy?!

The Bay Bridge is a beautiful landmark; both long and curvy with a gorgeous view of the Bay.

Easton would be a great trip in the fall or winter too. All of the restaurants have huge stone fireplaces that have crackling fires when it is cold. Daryle and I first came to Easton a few days after Christmas last year and had just such a lovely of a time. It’s such an easy drive, plus we passed some Outlet shopping which is always fun. We hope to return in the months to come!
