Our 21st Anniversary Getaway!

Hello! I thought that I'd blog "off-topic" today, as my husband, Tom, treated me to a 21st Anniversary Getaway trip to Cambridge, Maryland, which is located on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. This area was one that I was not familiar with and had never taken the opportunity to explore before, but I was amazed at the beautiful landscape that abounds along this coastline that forks out into multiple waterways, creeks and rivers. For our special getaway, we booked a room at the Lodgecliffe at Choptank Bed & Breakfast, which was built in 1898 and was such a lovely home, not to mention the breathtaking sunset views from the Cliffelodge rear deck and backyard:

Above, is the expansive back deck where there is deck lounge chairs and umbrella tables during the warmer months and to the right of the deck is the screened-in porch where breakfast is served during the warmer months, as well. Both afford the Lodgecliff guest fantastic views of the Choptank River.

Above, are two views of the backyard of the Lodgecliff Bed & Breakfast, where guests and sit and relax and just breathe in God's handpainted sunsets!

Above is the beautifully decorated living room/parlor of the Lodgecliff, where we were greeted by our friendly inkeepers, Autumn & Katherine, with hot coffee and freshly baked muffins! I just love the blue and yellow decor in this happy and sunny!

Above, is the sunny and beautifully decorated dining room where we had a delicious breakfast of juice, coffee, grilled fresh fruit, fresh homemade muffins and a puffed pastry with blueberry syrup. A beautiful blue tapestry rung and yellow walls made for a very pleasant breakfast experience.

The Lodgecliff had a wonderful addition to their Bed & Breakfast in their bright & comfy sunroom which faced the inn's rear double doors, which lead out to the deck and backyard and where you can read, sip tea and enjoy the beautiful views on the was WONDERFUL! My fav place in the whole inn! If you're in the Cambridge, Maryland/Eastern Shore area, you must visit Lodgecliff at Choptank.

I feeling very relaxed and very loved as I come back to the daily grind! If you have a chance to visit the Lodgecliff, you will not be was wonderful!

See you in a few days!
