This weekend I was mostly in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, but I made sure to make the most out of being in MD even if it was just for a day or two! I started out the weekend hanging out with Kelly and her kids in Fallson on Friday night 🙂 We went to Belvedere Farm and picked out farm-fresh flowers to display in our homes. We also got carry out from Basta Pasta. They did have an outdoor area that looked safe, if that appeals to you! Their entire menu is delicious. Kelly sent me a picture of her oldest son holding up a sign that gives me all the feels! Love you, little one!
On Labor Day, we explored our favorite parts of town – Fort McHenry and Fells Point. The star fort is STILL closed as well as the museum, but we made the most out of it and enjoyed the 1 mile walk around the fort. We went into a bunch of shops in Fells Point. But first, make sure you spot the Vote Against Prohibition sign in the center of the small town. We went into EC Pops for the first time… what a cool store! We also like going to Poppy & Stella and Brightside Boutique for outfits, and The Seasoned Olive for creative gift ideas.
Also in Fells Point is The Choptank. Their frozen drinks and the atmosphere make us feel like we are at the beach. We love their music and vibe. We ended the weekend with a pitstop at Chiapparelli’s in Little Italy. Their drooling gnocchis are absolutely drool-worthy.
Since Marie was at work on Tuesday and I had the day off, I showed Emma around Baltimore some more. We biked/ran around the harbor in the morning. She got to see the Sandlot, and we had brunch at Miss Shirley’s in the Inner Harbor. We got the Wake Up Call and the Spicy Shirley to start us off. We each got an Elote Street Corn Avocado Toast, and we shared the S’Mores Baked Donuts. What a treat! It is always super busy on the weekends, so I would recommend coming here during the week. We recommend to ask for some Old Bay on top of the toast 😉 I took a Lime home… it definitely is touchy and scary at times, but it is SO MUCH FUN!
Mom and Dad have been wanting to take me to The Bridges on Kent Narrows ALL SUMMER. Finally, we made it! Boy was it worth it. Our favorite drink was the Bridges Breeze, and we ate the fried green tomatoes, crab cake, coconut shrimp, and ahi tuna. For dessert, we had the key lime cheesecake and the blondie. I’m drooling just typing this right now. It was nothing short of amazing. This restaurant is also right on the water and has a very relaxing view and atmosphere.
Afterwards, we explored the small town of Chestertown. We also drove around the nearby Washington College, and Camp Pecometh which is where my bestie got married! On the way home, we checked out our favorite new neighborhood called Gibson’s Grant, which is along a beautiful bike trail. Wow what a weekend. Did I mention I went to Shenandoah? Check out the “Around the U.S.” section tomorrow night for that post.
