I wanted a quiet birthday weekend a few years ago: swimming, listening to music, art galleries, and some shopping. Rock Hall, opposite my usual spot on the Chesapeake Bay fit my needs.
The tiny beach with an expansive view across the Chesapeake Bay….. fantastic for relaxing swims and picnics. Friendly folks and cheerful small talk…..I really enjoyed it.
A fantastic intimate music venue right in town, the Mainstay, had Dick Durham and Stef Scaggiari, a super piano concert. World famous musicians often perform at the Mainstay in sleepy Rock Hall.
Seafood galore, yummy blueberry waffles for breakfast, and lunch to go…..I love eating on the beach. I love eating! Casual, relaxed, delicious dining is a Rock Hall specialty.
The shops on Main Street and Oyster Court, including a farmers market surprised me with several gifts (including one for me) and more goodies (strawberries) for lunch on the beach.
Go, for a peaceful, relaxing, seafood-full weekend, visit Rock Hall.
I love hot sand and cold water. Shade trees and piers are icing on the cake.
Betterton is calling my name…..I’ll be back soon.
Matapeake Beach…..after swimming I chatted with a woman about the beautiful beach and admired her Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppy.
The confluence of history and art make Chestertown delightful, especially the sewer covers.
