A rainy dreary day. Would rather have had snow – but too warm for that – although snow is in forecast for tomorrow and Tuesday. Maybe it will get cold enough to snow tonight. Our last day at the lake so we are relaxing in front of the fireplace with wine, chocolates and books.
Oakland Train Station
Now these are icicles!
Blackwater Falls. We went to one of the overlooks but they had the stairs blocked off so you could not go to the overlook so we drove to the other side of the falls and took this picture
After breakfast we headed out to Thomas, West Virginia. There was an article in the Washington Post recently that a lot of new shops had opened in Thomas and since we had not been there in a long time decided to take a drive. Yes, a lot of new shops have opened but for some strange reason most of them were closed. Then we headed to Blackwater Falls State Park – can’t remember the last time we were there. Stopped at the Falls and several overlooks. When we were walking back from one of the overlooks we noticed two deer. They are used to people and seemed to be posing for us. Liked this one the best and so did a lot of other people. It made the popular page on my 365Project.
Had a great day. When we were here over New Year’s the canoe was frozen in the middle of McHenry Cove. After we left, there was a warming spell and the canoe floated to shore on the opposite side of the cove. The cove and the lake is still mostly frozen.
There is still snow on the ground and most of the lake is still frozen. This was taken from the porch of the Lakepointe Inn. It’s great to be back at the inn – I am sitting in front of the fireplace, with some wine, chocolates, and a good book and my husband. Life is good!
Took the day off and headed for Deep Creek Lake for the weekend. We stopped at Knob Hill Winery which is in Clear Lake, Maryland. It’s out in the country in the middle of now where – we tried some of their wines and ended up buying some. They have really interesting names for their wines – Jealous Mistress and Tryst
When I uploaded the pictures I noticed the signs – Kiss French – Drink Maryland. Have never heard that expression before
The flowers in the front yard are starting to bloom. It’s amazing that the one is in full bloom and the other one is only open a little.
