A Cross Country Road Trip ~ June/July 2018 ~ Part 4

Upon departing Chincoteague Island Virginia, we headed for the wonderful little town of Salisbury Maryland.  This was a must stop for me!  We’d been here once before, some years ago and went to The Country House.  Both DH and I just loved the place.  There’s so many super cool home furnishings and décor here AND  now they have multiple buildings, filled!

We planned accordingly and arrived just about a half hour prior to their opening time and had breakfast sandwiches right across the street at Kellyn’s Kafe.  Good coffee, great breakfast sandwich and donuts too!

But we’re here on a mission, that being: find a new chandelier for our dining area.

I don’t care so much for the one that was included with our new home and have been waiting for this moment.

In our previous home, I had added a beautiful lighting fixture from The Country House and knew that I’d find another.


We hand-carried this home with us in our car from Maryland ALLLLL the way back to my kitchen in the middle of the desert.

Now mind you all, this was only a stop as we were actually headed for Gettysburg Pennsylvania.

My husband is a huge American History buff and I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been to Gettysburg National Military Park, but this time we really wanted to go to the new Museum and Visitor Center.

You should be advised that your America The Beautiful pass will not get you in here for free, this is owned and operated by the Gettysburg Foundation.

We spent the majority of a day browsing through the museum only and still could have stayed longer.

It just so happened to be that we were visiting during the July 4th weekend and it was packed!!!  We did very well with the timing of everything.  As we drove the self guided car tour of the Park itself, it seemed as though everybody else was over at the live re-enactments, we skipped that and had lunch instead at The Pub & Restaurant.  Every time that we’ve visited Gettysburg, we’ve eaten here at least once, but for the life of me I can’t recall what we had on this occasion. HA!  😀


But it’s time to move on, we have a schedule to keep …
