So yesterday, I took a little break from the hustle and  bustle of the city (awesome as it is) and joined my friend and fellow Kerrycrat, Mary Beth, on a day trip to Assenteague Island National Seashore (with the famous wild horses that inspired the Misty book series), near the very charming little town of Berlin, Maryland. It was quite the drive–a little over three hours in each direction–but I personally love a good road trip and the drive was fantastically beautiful! Plus it was so great, hanging out with Mary Beth, who I first met during my time in the Boston area last year but who is also now in DC (she came out to the Boston area from Arizona too–what are the odds?? :)).

Because I am something of an amateur photographer (or at least a big enthusiast),  the camera on my beloved Blackberry was in full swing the entire day. The photos tell the story best, I think. Maryland is gorgeous! It reminds me a lot scenically of Massachusetts, but has its own unique beauty, in its own  right:

Annapolis, Maryland, just outside  the famous Naval Academy

  Neat little Irish Kilt shop in the Annapolis town square (where we stopped for breakfast on the way). If I ever marry, that will be my dress! 😉 🙂

  They have a Jimmy John’s in Maryland! Thought it was a U of A thing (it was a popular hang out on campus at my alma matter :))).

Boats in the harbor!

Wild horses right outside the car!

  It was so great to put my feet into the ocean again, get sand between my toes..ocean=bliss! 🙂

Globe Theater Cafe and Restaurant in Berlin, where we stopped for dinner on the way back. Loved the theme and atmosphere!

Beautiful sun set on the drive back, reminded me of home..

I had a truly fantastic time. Thanks again, Mary Beth!

More soon!

      Thanks, Kasey! Well he’s said that he goes home to Massachusetts on the weekends but you never know..that area was near DC but still far away in it’s own right! 😉
