When we look back through time does time look back at us?
So we took a trip to meet up with family this past October in Ocean City Maryland. It was a wonderful trip with lots of colors and textures to see and buckwheat pancakes for breakfast every morning! We really did a whole lot of nothing the whole week, hanging out with family and driving around eastern Maryland and the coast. Rehoboth Beach was pretty cool, with a farmers market and polite bus drivers. In fact everyone there was polite. Daily breakfasts at the Dough Roller were great. Halloween dinner at the Suicide Bridge restaurant was nice. Then there was Italian food…. on my! Here are a few pics from the trip and the “Swag” I brought back…

My reading material for the trip.
We did have a great time seeing the Man’s Sister and her Man, two of the coolest folks I know. Eating was always a treat since everywhere we ate was pretty much local or “Mom and Pop” no national chain restaurants (unless you found coffee from Starbucks) It was off-season in OC so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Sure a lot was closed, but we fared pretty well!
This is my first exploration into rust dying. It all went very fast. I found these rusty things on Thursday, wrapped them up on Friday evening and here they are on Saturday evening. Pretty exciting. The details: Rusty things wrapped with old cotton pillow case scraps, tied with old cotton string, soaked in two parts water to one part white vinegar, placed in freezer bag and left on the shady porch (heat is in the low 90’s) for a day. Pretty easy and I’m digging the results…
