St. Michaels to Solomons (Sep 3 to Sep 18 )
Joe was also able to walk through the Cutts and Case Shipbuilders building and see the wooden boats they design and build there.
The next morning we decided to move to Cambridge - a short trip. Unfortunately, the bay was still kickin' so it was a short, unpleasant trip. Cambridge has a very well protected little harbor with a wall you can tie to. The downtown area is right there. There just isn't much to see or do.
There are a few shops - one gallery had a whole room full of Danny Doughty's works with accompanying models. I had a nice chat with the girl who makes the models and just loved the art. He has a whimsical style that just makes you smile. We also stopped in a decoy store that could've been a museum!
Since the downtown didn't hold much interest and the weather was just incredible, I found a nice residential area to walk in along the water. The homes were mostly old and mostly well-kept. Evidently they have architectural restrictions. I didn't notice any signs of cottages having been torn down to be replaced by McMansions.
We also had time to view the local wildlife. The jelly fish population was highly concentrated, discouraging any possible thoughts of taking a dip. In general the jelly fish seem to have been thick this summer. We assume the extreme heat had something to do with it.
