Took a little Drive to MD for some Crab Cakes!

Nothing like getting it fresh from the bay. Here are some pics from my drive up there. Did a little bit of the Blue Ridge Parkway and some fun VA roads.



The roads on Roanake Mountain need a little maintenance.








This road suprised me. The GPS thought it was 55 mph. Maybe on my sport bike, but I'm still getting used to driving a car so I couldn't quite hold 55 in the curves.


I took this photo so I the tag could remind me where the road was. Otherwise I didn't have time to take a photo and drive.



I also stopped at the Appomattox Court House where Lee surrendered to Grant.


Driving across the Potomac River Bridge.


Got close and personal with the Chesapeake Bay.

Yes, do tell on the cakes. And a BIG +1 on G&M. Better than Timbuktu.

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! Patrick Henry

Have to agree G&M is one of the best places. I have had them shipped to Michigan a couple of times as well.

Been to G&M several times. Even managed to finish off a two crab cake dinner once.

And the Hotel at Arundel has crab cakes Benedict for breakfast. It doesn't suck.

I ate at a dive that was full of locals doing the all you can eat deal. I think it was called Captain Jacks or something like that.

Just got home this past weekend. Had some fun in the mountains getting home and of course did the obligatory drive down the Dragon for some professional photos.

The Blue Ridge Parkway Viaduct


The humidity was low so the depth of the mountains was very visible


Mount Mitchell State Park


Highest point on the Parkway
