Day 1, Never very exciting

Baltimore, United States

I hit the road at about noon today, about an hour later than I wanted to, But at least 2 hours earlier than I normally do. Everything was going fine until I hit the Harrisburg, PA area where my GPS wanted me to leave I-81 and start heading towards Baltimore, MD. I’m thinking I must have mist a turn or something. Either that or My GPS decided to try and teach me to tie a Tie… upside-down

Other than that the drive was uneventful. I was however a bit surprised to see a 30’ Crash test Dummy standing across the street from my hotel. He seems to be helping the DMV Promote the use of seatbelts. I don’t know if this is his permanent home or if he’s on tour.

And then there’s dinner… The Stoney Creek Inn is the first of the DDD (Diners Drive Inns and Dives) restaurants on this trip. Obviously a seafood restaurant in this part of Maryland is known for it’s crab. Unfortunately local crab aren’t in season right now, but they did a fine job with the imported stuff they were serving tonight. I of course ordered the combo platter in order to have a taste of several items from their menu. The Fried Shrimp were a bit over cooked. The oysters were good, not great. The broiled flounder was dry, The Crab Cake was fantastic, made with huge hunks of crab and cooked perfectly. They served the Sweet Potato Fries with a cinnamon and sugar mix to sprinkle on if you want. The fries were good, but the cinnamon sugar didn’t work for me, maybe it’s a Yankee thing, But I prefer the Maple syrup they serve at Hafners in Syracuse.

Tomorrow I’m supposed to head to DC but they’re calling for snow tomorrow, and rain and snow around the rest of my trip. I’m kinda thinking of heading to Myrtle Beach for a day or so to warm up a little, very little.
