On Sunday, Motor Man and I traveled to Berlin. Berlin, Maryland, that is. A few weeks ago, we met someone who mentioned the town and suggested that we visit.
We checked the town’s web-site and learned that they offer…..free horse and carriage rides on weekends in December. Motor Man twisted my arm until I agreed to go.
Oh, and they also have three huge antique malls. More arm twisting.
We drove across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel not long after sunrise. I was able to determine that this is an ACL (Atlantic Cargo Line) cargo ship. We weren’t familiar, so I did some quick research and learned that these vessels are the largest container ships built, they’re more efficient and ‘greener’ than those built in the past. And it made for a nice picture in the early morning sun.
The carriage rides in Berlin began at 11, but a couple of the antique malls opened at 10. So I did some shopping, then we stood in a short line for the carriage ride.
We would later learn that the horses are Heflingers; that’s John on the left, and Bonnie on the right. I do believe they were posing for me.
Be sure your sound is on:
One of the folks working with the carriage company took our picture prior to the ride. There’s a little glare involved, but I like Motor Man’s smile.
And after the ride, another photo op.
On our way home, we had dinner at Kelly’s Pub in Cape Charles, one of our favorite restaurants.
Another fun day trip in the books.
