the photo blog about travel, history, and business
We are farther afield this day back a few years ago. From the photo, you can see that we are inside a colossal structure. The soft light of an early morning is streaming through ancient columns.
Broken parts of columns lie all about. Holes in the columns suggest that we are looking at the structure beneath what was once much a more ornate building.
The young family in the lower right has stopped to take in their surroundings. The father is looking inside the structure. What does he see? Can you guess where we are?
And, did you guess were we were in the sunset image below?
You are looking at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge from the Eastern Shore, Maryland side. We happened upon this pier and this moment after dinner. The location is outside the seafood restaurant (Hemingway's Restaurant) we stopped at while traveling to Chestertown, Maryland for a family event. Our lodgings for the night are shown below.
The White Swan Tavern, an inn preserved since colonial times, is still configured as it was in the late 1700s. It is located in Chestertown where my father-in-law grew up and where the first college was chartered in the newly sovereign United States. Washington College was founded in 1782 and still serves the region.
And, yes, George Washington did visit Chestertown on more than one occasion and stayed in the White Swan Inn.
