While visiting Eulalie’s sister Mary Helen, her husband Richard Bogan mapped out an itinerary for a day of touring Maryland’s Eastern Shore. The tour included a ferry crossing from Bellevue to Oxford. Richard, a Seattle native, observed that we had come from Bellevue (a Seattle suburb) to Maryland’s Bellevue. These Bellevue bookends bracket many thousands of miles of our road trip and provide bi-coastal vantage points from which to view our efforts to reconnect with our State-side lives this summer. Within the week we will begin moving west again, albeit slowly, for our return in October to our cruising adventure. For more on our visit to Maryland and Washington D.C. as well as musings on our travels stay tuned for future posts.
