Never-ending bridge in Maryland!

My latest experience was to travel on one of the longest bridges in the world, the Bay Bridge in Maryland.  Here are some photos  The first photo is what it looked like to us, the others I got off the net so you could see how huge it is.   It actually started as one bridge but there was too much traffic for it…. so the big think American solution of course was to build a second one!

I got to go to this part of the world as Leisa had a commissioned painting to do there, so we figured we would make a day of it.

First we stopped off into Annapolis, the capital of the state, which dates back to the 1600’s.  A beautiful church  serves as a center-piece of the town.

Our next stop was the town of Easton.  Naturally we found ourselves a cute coffee house, called none other than “The Coffee Cat”.  Here we are giving a toast to your health!

On the way back another first for me was to see what a REAL traffic jam is like. We think we have problems in Auckland!  An popular annual festival was being held in Maryland that weekend (it was Friday) and we witnessed  bumper to bumper traffic for ten miles as we flew by constantly thanking the Lord that we were going the other way!

Catch ya next time.  Next you will see the sights of Washington DC.   love Melva.
