We leave today for our annual weekend in Chestertown, Maryland. I've written about it on this blog previously. It is always a lovely and enjoyable weekend.
This year we're staying in this room at the White Swan Tavern. We've stayed there before and always found it enjoyable. This particular room is one of the nicest, though not the most costly. It is the only one on the ground floor and was the original kitchen for the inn.
Tonight we'll go down to the waterfront and see the tall ships illuminated for Downrigging Weekend, and tomorrow we'll go for a sail on one of them. The afternoon will be devoted to watercoloring for Joe and shopping and a nap (I've picked up the inevitable headcold going through Upper School) for me.
It is a lovely break in routine, one we've come to thoroughly enjoy each year.
