I just returned last night from a spur of the moment week long trip to Maryland. Mike's dad landed himself in the hospital and we had some family business to tend to for him. We didn't really have a chance to tell anyone we were going and we didn't really have any free time to speak of while there.
I did get to squeeze in a short visit with my life long best friend Tammy, which was wonderful, not enough time, but I loved it just the same.
We left for Maryland last Wednesday which was also Mikes birthday. I pulled a rabbit out of the hat so to speak and arranged for him to take a sail out on the Chesapeake Bay in a Skipjack as his birthday gift. A skipjack is a type of sailboat developed on the Chesapeake Bay for oyster dredging. And YES they also dredged for oysters, he loved it. I figured with all we were dealing with, he deserved to take a little time for himself and come to find out, this was something he's wanted to do for years, he even said it was on his "bucket list".
