23 Years With My Lovely Wife


Barb and I have been doing a minivaction together to celibrate our wedding anniversary in recent years. We went to Gettysburg, Rehobath, DE, Philadelphia, and New York City. This year we decided to go west to Hancock, MD. We stayed in a bed and breakfast called the 1828 Trail Inn. The keepers of the inn are a wonderful couple. They enjoyed talking but at the same time respected our privacy. The breakfast was great. There was Belgiun waffles the first day and French toast the second. Bill was the cook. He made a orange syrup that was simply del.icio.us. Having checked out all the places in Hancock, it is easy to say, the 1828 Trail Inn is the best place to stay.

We stayed in the Railroad Room. It was decorated with trains related things. It had a porch where I went out on to read each morning and jaccuzi that soaked in each night. What a routine! If you look at the picture, you see the little second story porch on the right hand side of the house. That was my morning hang out before Barbara awoke. Maybe she was just playing 'possum, I don't know.

The highlight of our trip was renting recumbant bicycles from the C & O Bicycle shop, general store, and believe or not, bunk house. We took a nice two hour ride. (Working off some of Bill Belgiun waffles.)

We had a nice relaxing time. Last year we went to New York City and did it right. This year we went to small town Americana.
