Before I get back to Christmas and what I've been up to, I want to post about our weekend getaway, a colorful roadtrip and visit to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We spent a few fabulous days with Andy's brother, Tommy and Elena. Such amazing hosts, they love to share their home and local scene.

Just the drive down there at day's end was a fine adventure.

We headed for the Renaissance Fair on Saturday. A first for us.

The day was a spectacular, though breezy, autumn color day. Just right for wandering, people watching and camera play. Robin Hood, Camelot, Ewok Adventure, Harry Potter? This is the place.

Fantasy overload.

Back to their lovely home-cooked dinner followed by morning coffee on their waterfront deck. An osprey flew overhead.

One or two more bridges back, a game on the radio and stitching all the way. Fantastic! Thanks, Tom and Elena!
