July 4th - 9th we were still hanging in MD. Got my blue crabs fix, got to see lots of friends, enjoy hanging out at Willow Oaks new tasting room. Left lots of art to decorate the walls. If you are in Middletown, MD go check it out and who knows you may find a piece of art to take home. Along with my art, there is work by friends: Marilu, Tracy, Homer, Christopher and Lisa. Don't forget to try the cider.
Almost forgot on our last evening in MD we had a lovely moon-rise.
July 10th - headed back on the road, car loaded, destination Columbus, OH with a lunch break at Rocky Gap State Park. Once we got back on the road, it rained and rained. Finally let up as we got ready to stop for the evening.

This was just the beginning of the day, after lunch we checked out the local downtown square. Finding lots of shops, newly renovated art center that use to be a bank and chalk festival was just getting set up for the weekend. Friday evening at the airport were bi-planes, hot air balloons and ribs. This event would go on till Sunday. We were happy that we kept the little blanket we generally have in the car just for those moments when you want to have a picnic or watch hot air balloons do a glow show. Another great way to end a stay in Wausau, WI.
This brings you up to date on Rick and Linda's grand adventures across North America. More to come....
