Snapshot Saturday 4/5

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

Last weekend, we took a mini 48-hour vacation to St. Michael's on the eastern shore of Maryland. That was the only two days we had with all four of us alone together until late summer, so we tried to squeeze in a little getaway at a lovely inn on the water.  Best laid plains... It ended up dark and rainy the entire weekend, and my youngest son had a sinus infection and bronchitis! We still tried to make the best of things and enjoyed a couple of days in each other's company.

View to the south from our porch when we first arrived - before the rains came!

And the view to the north - we were surrounded by water.

Enjoying crabs (and laughs!) in town at St. Michael's harbor

Playing cards with my sons in our room.

The beautiful views from the breakfast room at the inn - too bad it was still raining!

Now, the sun is shining and the temperature is finally creeping up here in Delaware! Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend wherever you are.


  1. It looks a beautiful getaway, despite the rain,

  2. This place looks lovely. We are always looking for somewhere to go away for the weekend and this might be a good option for us. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Sean -

    St. Michaels is a great place to visit, along with other towns on the Eastern shore. Pretty little town right on the harbor with lots of shops and restaurants. We stayed at Wade's Point Inn, just past St. Michael's - gorgeous 360 degrees of the water and we scored off-season rates!


  4. That's great that you managed to find some inside places to enjoy the views even in the rain.

  5. That looks like a lovely place for an escape--rainy or sunny. So great that you could spend that time with your sons. I'm on the other side of the continent (Washington State) so it's a little bit far for a weekend getaway for me!

    Lovely inn you stayed at! Even with the rain, you got to enjoy each other's company, so it must have been fun.

  7. I love the look of the inn you were staying in - it looks spacious enough to enjoy quiet inside activities and still fell like you've had a luxurious break away :-)

  8. So glad you were able to get away for a bit!

    Here's my Saturday Snapshot.

  9. What a shame about the weather. You still look like you made the best of it. I like the idea of crab, and playing cards in bed!
