Well...this is as close to London as I got this weekend.
I was disappointed that we did not get to go, but Troy was a sweetheart and took me to the Eastern Shore (Maryland for my non-Eastern friends). We stayed at a wonderful little B&B on the Chesapeake Bay and had so much fun exploring the peninsula. We walked the boardwalk at Ocean City, saw the ponies on Assateague Island, walked the beach at Rehobeth, toured the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the Maryland State House.
It was relaxing and wonderful.
How grateful I am for good friends who watched the kids for us. We are so blessed.
Some of the highlights:

Troy...I just couldn't resist.

And...can I just say that I have decided that I want to live here on the water, with a dock and boat:
Life is good.
