Day 2 - E-Town to Frederick, MD

The breakfast room at the bed and breakfast. We were the only guest so they basically asked us what we wanted to have. And it was fantastic as always. Anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay in the area, look no further than the West Ridge B&B in Elizabethtown, PA, aka E-Town.

We stopped at the Masonic Village to visit with some of the caretakers of Bridget’s parents. Bridget has been here numerous times per year for the last 14 years that many of the care providers have become like friends and family. It doesn't seem like they've been there that long but I guess 14 years is a while. The bird is just one of many that are scattered around the assisted living facility.

After leaving E-Town, the next stop was the Bird-in-Hand farmers market in the town of Bird-in-Hand. I didn't pick up much. Some sugar-free chocolate candy, a magnet, and some old-fashioned Lebanon bologna. The sample was pretty good. Closer to a summer sausage than dry salami but not something readily available in Fairbanks. I was tempted by the bacon brittle but passed. Essentially peanut brittle made with crispy bacon.

We then headed west and south through Gettysburg and out of PA back into Maryland. We made it as far as historic Frederick, MD. Tomorrow morning, we'll look around and try to find out what is the historic part. BTW, it has been cold and windy around here. Windy enough to blow the rental car around...
