Weekly Wrap-Up: An Island Vacation

This week was pretty much a “week off” for me, as much as I’m ever “off” and still carrying my camera.  Marc took a week’s vacation this week, and since I wanted to enjoy this chance for us to have some quality time together, I pretty much wrote off getting anything done, work-wise.

It was nice to take a week off, even though I did manage to squeak in some processing of my shots from last weekend’s “Tank Farm” reenactment.  Marc and I went to Maryland’s Eastern Shore region on Tuesday, exploring Easton, Oxford, and Cambridge, as well as Assawoman  and Onancock (whose names still makes my inner 5 year old giggle).  On Wednesday we took a boat to Tangier Island, an extremely isolated island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay that is famous for its Restoration-era English accent.  We spent about four hours wandering around the island, exploring the sights and eating excellent seafood (order the soft-shell crab cakes!).  On Saturday, Marc and I took the car out Route 50 to explore part of Virginia’s “Hunt Country”, a region of fancypants horse farms punctuated by cute little historical towns.
