Chesapeake City

31 May

When my husband and I went on vacation last week, we were pleasantly surprised by a city that we visited in Maryland, called Chesapeake City.  I’d never heard of it before.  Located along the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, it’s full of historic buildings and cute shops.

We stumbled upon the historic town on the way to our Bed and Breakfast.  We walked around the docks and browsed in the shops.  On our walk, we noticed that people were setting up for a wedding.  In the pictures, you can definitely see why someone might want to be married along the water.

  

 

In the above image, you can see the wedding chairs in the background.  Wouldn’t this brick structure be an awesome place to take wedding photos?  So cute!

After stopping by a few shops, including Almost History, where I discovered gorgeous Viva Beads jewelry, we made reservations at a local waterfront restaurant, The Bayard House

My photos don’t really do it justice.  It has a relaxing outdoor patio, which is where we ate, but also has elegant dining rooms inside for a more formal meal.  The food was excellent, and the service was amazing.

In fact, while we were eating, we saw a HUGE ship go through the canal.  It’s incredible to think that a man-made canal can accommodate that type of vessel!

Pretty crazy, right?  All in all, our visit in Chesapeake City was entertaining and relaxing.  We had a great time taking in the sights in this small, cute little town!
