Weekend Wrap Up 11.4.2013 Day at the Bay

We sadly said goodbye to the long days this weekend and ushered in colder weather and 5:00 p.m. sunsets. It’s that time of year to cozy up indoors under blankets. Friday night I had a wild and crazy night in, cooking and baking up a storm before settling down to catch up on our DVR.

On Saturday, Ryan and I celebrated one of the last warmer days with a day trip down to Havre de Grace , the most northern town on the Chesapeake Bay. This quaint port town marks the spot where the great Susquehanna River empties into the Chesapeake Bay.

It also coincidently was our 5 months wedding anniversary – and since we like to celebrate all special moments, big and small, we decided to toast to love!

We started with a little lunch complete with two martinis, Caramel Apple and Flirtini for me. They said “mini martinis”, you could get two for the price of one “regular” size one, but these were pretty large and hit the spot!

After lunch we explored the town, and ventured around the waterfront. The fall foliage was simply beautiful set against the Bay. Havre de Grace is home to the Concord Point Lighthouse, built in 1827. The keepers house was so adorable. After enjoying the views, we sat outside on the waterfront for what I believe will be our last outdoor drink of the year. Cheers!
