|My teeny tiny sundae...there's always|
room for ice cream!
Aside from Carl meeting the kids, etc., I wanted to show him around a little while we were in town.
We hit Fenwick Bakery and had breakfast with my sister and Amy. Of course, there were marshmallow donut requests from 2 of my offspring that needed to be delivered as well...lol.
Havre de Grace was another beautiful stop. It was pretty cold, but the ice was gorgeous! We strolled up and down the promenade taking in the views from the marina to the lighthouse and I was taking pictures, of course!!!
I also had the opportunity to visit with a few friends who couldn't come to the party for my birthday. Vince and I had a wonderful breakfast one morning...always a pleasure. Dena and I had lunch at Red Brick Station...a long overdue visit. And my PA BFF and I did a bit of eagle watching at Conowingo Dam...excellent!!!
|Ice encircling the tree|
and shoreline...it looked
very cool in person

a super clear shot, it's still awesome!

Then there was the birthday party!!! It is hard to put into words how sweet it was to see several dear friends that I hadn't seen in awhile and spend some time with them. Friends met new friends and discovered mutual friendships that hadn't been known before...how cool is that?! Carl got to meet everyone and he had a great time, too! Our time in MD was well spent...I GOT MY BIKE, TOO...YIPPEE!!!!!

other at my party, they got pretty excited that we ALL
knew each other...such fun!!!
When the impending blizzard became a real possibility with a prediction of 2-3 FEET, we decided to head out a day early. We left on a Thursday evening, drove through until 1:30 AMish, slept at a rest area and continued on around 6:30. Up until then it was smooth sailing...then the sleet and freezing rain joined our journey. We were driving about 20 on I95 for hours. The passenger side windshield wiper snapped and went flying off onto the highway somewhere...it was kinda funny...it didn't seem to hit anyone! So we stopped at a Pilot-Flying 'J' to get new blades. We arrived in NC safe and sound, but that's the next story!!!
|Entire motor home was covered in ice!|
