Is lovely too, even more so than the front (marina/museum) side where we’d anchored, oh must be five or six years ago.
A few steps up from the dock (essentially a bulkhead) sits a colorful and welcoming home.
A new addition to “things to do in town” is a distillery; no surprise uh? If there’s not one near you, there will be soon!
We missed the tour which they give once per day during the week, but happily partook of the free tastings.
Next to the distillery sits a great vintage/antique shop; closed on Mondays though. We got such a kick out of gas pumps from our youth.
The Acme grocery store has served the town for, well I don’t how long, but I’m guessing a number of years. Convenient for locals and cruisers alike. Our happy faces turned sad as we stood at the doorway and read the Closing Soon sign. Many grocery items were marked down 25%, I grabbed one of the last few pineapples and Russ scored a handful of CLIF bars for cheap. Had such a Twilight Zone feel; very eerie.
We had planned to stay a second night; walk the nature trail, tour the distillery, clean out the grocery store, take more photos… but the forecast indicated that Tuesday would be a far better travel day than Wednesday. Thus, we left. We will return in Spring or next Fall.
Without further ado, or fun St Mike’s time, we departed bound for Solomons, MD which sits tucked in off the Bay’s western shore; a 34 nm trip for us.
