Every summer for the past 20 years, my family has rented a house in Chestertown, MD. By "in" Chestertown, I mean about 15 minutes outside of town in a little, rural setting right on the water. It was the most amazing place for a kid's vacation. My cousins, sister and I would have free reign over the house, dock, river, and blackberry patches in the surrounding woods. After a few days, when everyone was feeling pretty squirrely, we would head into "town." Chestertown is a sleepy, pre-Revolutionary town right on the Chester River. I've traveled all over the world and this still stands as one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. As kids, I don't remember eating in town. We'd pick crabs and eat dinner (each family would take turns with the big meal) at the house as a family. This year, it was a skeleton crew and for 3 days it was just my parents and I. We celebrated the peace and quite by going out to eat at some of the fun restaurants in town. I'm excited to pass a few eating out memories from this trip with you.
Ready for their close-up!
