Have you ever had a perfect day?

This is a post about one of those perfect days. My hubby planned a weekend away for us. The only thing I knew beforehand was that it was a few hours within the Baltimore area. That leaves a lot of options available. Last year, we had a great time in Chincoteague for my birthday weekend.

It turns out we were headed to St. Micheals, MD. The town started as a shipping village and now thrives on tourism. This is the also quaint little town where Wedding Crashers with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson was filmed.

We stayed at a very cute Victorian bed and breakfast, right on the main street. Not the Wedding Crashers inn, that one was a tad out of our price range. We were able to walk to all the restaurants and boutique shops. One of the restaurants, Ava's pizzeria was the winner of the weekend because I found a Louisiana beer on tap at their bar.

My hubby had brought the scooter (this was pre-accident) so we spent the rest of the time shopping, eating, and scooting around the area. The weather was gorgeous all weekend. We visited the Maritime Museum:

We also rode the ferry to another small town called Oxford. We were the only scooter on the ferry, when a dozen motorcycles joined us. Turns out they were "Women on Wheels." I missed a pic of them, but here's the beach just off the road where we wait for the ferry.

And no celebratory weekend is complete without a couple of pina coladas.

It was a perfect, relaxing, lovely weekend.
