TIDBITS SAGA:

CRISFIELD, MARYLAND TRIP

On May 30 through June 1, 2011, Ted and I decided we needed to take a little break, so we decided to go to Crisfield, Maryland for a couple of days. It's a small fishing village on the Chesapeake Bay just north of the Virginia line.

I had heard of Crisfield for many years and was curious about it.

Crisfield was really deserted at 3pm but we found a cute little place called the Tiki Café 

and had a nice lunch overlooking the harbor.
The Tiki Café had several loud patrons having a good time. They were dressed in bathing suits and cutoffs. I had a hamburger and a piña colada; Ted had an oyster sandwich.
It was a good start to our mini-vacation.

We then went to find our B&B, which turned out to be a really neat old mansion on what they call Fish Baron's Row. 
We settled in and had a nap then decided to go for dinner. Little did we know that Crisfield closes down very early. It was eight o'clock and the only place we found open was a Subway! Oh well, so much for having a nice dinner in Crisfield.

The next morning found us touring the town which was very deserted and barren. What a disappointment. Most of the fishing places businesses were closed and dilapidated.



At the Noon Hour, our Ship left for…

So quiet in Crisfield -- but then that's what a lot of people want.

So it hasn't changed, huh?

This small towns, Lewes included, tend to close down their restaurants at 9. Even in season, Lewes has a number of its restaurants closed on Monday night. I'm sorry your missed your dining experience at a different place. I know how much you and Ted like to try new places. Have you tried Berlin Maryland? I haven't but I hear it's very nice and there might even be a restaurant or two open past 8.

Yes, we've been to Berlin several times. In fact, on our way back, we had lunch at the the wonderful Atlantic Hotel!
