Very nice story in today's New York Times travel section about traveling down the Eastern Shore of Maryland in search of blue crabs. From Rock Hall in the north to Smith Island in the south writer Jordan Hruska visits a lot of the territory we'll be covering.
We still haven't finalized our route for the trip, but the description of Waterman's Crab House in Rock Hall makes me want to move that waterfront town from the "optional" to the "must visit" category on our list.
He has also got me interested in Schooners in Oxford and the Drum Point Market in the village of Tylerton on Smith Island. Those two places were not on the list at all (we are looking at Ewell on Smith Island), but they'll be worth talking about as Bruce and I make our plans.
Maybe this story will be a nice road map for the trip.
