Ellicott City, Maryland



IMG_8390

Ellicott City is a very picturesque town close to where we were staying in the US. It's a lovely place to stroll around on a sunny afternoon, with a historic centre and interesting shops. I was particularly entertained by the store specialising in comic books and hot sauce. (And what relation between these two things? I have honestly no idea.)

There's also at least one nice coffee shop, Bean Hollow, where we spent a few hours relaxing over a nice cup of coffee and amazing, if slightly pricey, cakes.

It does look rather charming. And good to be looking a photos of sunshine when it's dark and gloomy outside!

We'll keep Ellicott City in mind. Since we have relatives in Dover, Delaware, we go east occasionally. I'm glad I had a chance to meet you and Andy. If I had known Andy's interests, I would have encouraged Tom to come along. He can do the easy trails. He is intersted in birds and worked in a somewhat similar type of job before he retired.

I live just an hour south of here and have never really walked around this place. Love seeing it through the eyes of a tourist! Yes, we are expensive.

It looks like you're visiting the 1950s! I love your pictures. 'Tearable puns' - HA! Wish I'd thought of that.

You didn't meet with Susan Elliot whilst you were there, did you? She is one AMAZING embroiderer (Plays with Needles blog) and I think that's her town.=)

BTW, glad you won Jules's giveaway - I was hoping you would. I'm sure you'll enjoy learning some new stitches, although that book doesn't teach the padded, wired and beaded stuff. It does some nice things that are half-way to full raised work though and is a good next step.=) I think there's something there about making rocks out of stuffing bits of old tights??

I want to make a sign of Tearable Puns... haha!
