Havre De Grace Maryland

Rain!  All day it's been raining...

I've been walking more and more each day and sometimes I just have to take a picture

Wouldn't you like to stroll through here?  Perhaps have a  picnic or just lay down and take a nap?

Yesterday we took Boo to his grooming at 1130, dropped him off and then headed into Havre De Grace to have lunch on the Susquehanna River at Tidewater Grille.  It was a lovely day to be on or near the water.  Full sunshine and a light breeze.  All the outdoor tables were taken and we didn't want to wait for a free table and chose to eat inside but we still had this nice view.

Over to the left was an Amtrak train trestle and we got to see several passenger trains cross the river in both directions.  Jim saw a big bird (bigger than an Osprey) hit the water and come up with a fish and we both saw him land on a rocky spit of land to eat it.  I think it was a juvenile Eagle.   Big lovely, brown bird.

I had crab cakes, garlic mashed potatoes and steamed veggies for lunch...ate about half of it and brought the rest home to enjoy 

Jim ordered the mixed seafood grille that included Salmon, scallops, shrimp and small crab cake, steamed veggie and fries.  He also brought home some of his lunch.  Not sure why restaurants serve such large portions but we usually get two meals out of it.

We splurged and had a dessert that was wonderful but I don't remember what it was.  Needless to say we left stuffed

One the back to pick up Boo we stopped at Target for a few groceries.  I'm looking for some coffee creamer and apparently the stores only carry the flavored kinds...I may have to give up coffee

Here's Boo with his new doo!  From PetsMart we drove to get fuel and paid $2.19 for diesel

So it was a busy afternoon and we got home in time for Jim to nap.  For about 15 minutes I rested before I had to feed Boo his dinner.

Not sure when this rain is going to end!  Because it was raining we headed to an inside mall to get some walking in and to get me a haircut.  Mission accomplished!  We also stopped in at Jimmy John's for some lunch.  

After lunch we headed to Barnes and Nobles for reading and coffee.  We like spending rainy afternoons this way.

Tomorrow we're on the road again, but still haven't picked a place to's that for planning?

All is right in our world
