Rock Hall, Maryland: Quiet Town on the Eastern Shore

Fall is here and I can hardly believe how much time has passed.  Has summer really come to an end?  I look through photographs of our trip to Rock Hall, Maryland and already those times seem so far away.  Has it been months since August already??

I’d never been to Rock Hall before this trip, although we often frequent the nearby town of Chestertown, and our favorite bakery,  Evergrain Bread Company.  Well worth a stop in for the baguettes alone!  When a friend invited me down to Rock Hall, I jumped at the chance to spend some time by the Chesapeake Bay.  The town itself is a small spot surrounded by water on the eastern shore of Maryland.   There is a tiny downtown area and the neighborhood around us had a few scattered restaurants throughout but we really didn’t spend much time there, choosing to hang out in our friend’s quaint beach house instead.  (I look forward to checking out some of the restaurants our next visit.)  Kids and adults rode their bikes through the quiet neighborhood, where we loved to take daily walks with the stroller. There is a small beach in Ferry Park, on beach road.  We played by the water during the day and would head back to at night to watch sunset views over the Chesapeake Bay.  Not too far from Philly or DC/Baltimore, from what I’ve seen Rock Hall seems like a nice, peaceful place to have a vacation home…
