Like many, I have always enjoyed seeing ships at sea. There is something special about these huge vessels moving gracefully across the water in silence.
This past weekend I spent the days and nights on Maryland's eastern shore, a place I love to visit for it's southern style hospitality and country living style. Yes, it is still a part of the state of Maryland but in many ways makes you feel like you have left town and visited some other place.
After the long, brutally cold Winter that brought us record low temperatures and record high snow accumulations, we are now only a few days from the start of Spring. I've been on the lookout for the early signs like Jonquils and Tulips breaking ground and Robins strutting about in search of worms. No luck so far but any day now, and it will be official.
