Comfortable Musings

What’s to do on The Eastern Shore

Looking out the window this morning, the wind shoving across the river, rain clouds and wet everywhere , it would be hard to tell that it’s May if it weren’t for the lush green and the recently returned Osprey happily riding the air currents in search of materials fo this years nests…

Spring is really here ….boats of all sorts have been returned to the water, outdoor cafe’s and restaurants once again sport street side tables and umbrellas, cyclists and kayak enthusiasts can be seen arriving with vehicles loaded down with gear.

Talbot County and nearby Dorchester County have put together a wide array of fantastic outdoor events for locals and visitors to take part in …

Here is a small sampling of what awaits you in the month of May:

Tilghman Island comes to life in the spring with the onset of the crabbing season and the beginning of sport fishing.
Visit The Tilghman Island Inn on Sunday, May 10th for a fabulous Mothers Day brunch then head over for a real preview of summer at The Bay Hundred Restaurant where the first luau of summer will take place from 1pm till…

St Michaels as always offers a terrific variety of small shops, art gallerys and museums all located on the main thorough fare through town.
Never miss a chance to visit the St. Michaels Maritime Museum when you come t the eastern shore as the exhibits are updated regularly.

Stop into the Eastern Shore Brewing Company to what the latest creation is …and enjoy live music every Thursday evening from 6pm-8pm and The St. Michaels Winery just round the corner is also a fun stop…they will be offering special wine prices May 9th for Mothers Day .

Take a trip on the Oxford Bellvue Ferry, take in the beauty of Oxford architecture, and enjoy the best ice cream by far on the entire shore at The Oxford Creamery.

The beauty of historic Easton and it’s growing arts community is not to be missed. Spend the sunny hours taking in the gallerys and museums and then turn to ‘Coffee CAt’ (formerly ‘ Coffee East’) and The Historic Avalon Theater for incredible live music every weekend. Both of these venues ntw being booked by Mangold entertainment and the performers are top notch.

This coming weekend weekend in Cambridge features a Blues and jazz fest free of charge.

We will continue to post new events for the month as they become available….

plenty to do …or do nothing at all….it’s your getaway ..just a short drive ….

Call us for your reservation at The Lazyjack !

The Summer season begins

Summer FlowersMemorial Day 2010…..seems like we waited forever for this one to arrive…but it was surely worth the wait! Mother Nature gave us some fabulous summer weather to share with the weekends guests…and as always it was a real privilege to offer people the perfect space to unwind and really enjoy their weekend escape.

I was happy to serve my favorite Mint Pancakes with Rasberry Sauce as it had been a good bit since i had shared that treat with our guests! I am happy to report that all of the plates came back clean!!!

We had a full three day weekend and the chance to meet new friends…it is our sincere hope that they have journeyed home safely , well rested and with great memories of their time on Tilghman Island and The Lazyjack Inn.

Winter is here at the Lazyjack Inn

We are sporting a redecorated library that is really comfortable for our guests. Mike has been creating some very interesting wooden bowls from special wood that was destined for the landfill or the chipper. He will make a few of them available for others at pretty reasonable price for a one of a kind creation.
We have some very special packages and prices for our guests. Would love to see some of you this winter. It is really peaceful here.

Chesapeake Winter Beauty

We are looking at Daffodils 8″ out of the ground and budded up – time has flown and we are looking at an early Spring. The winter pruning  is complete and there is about a days work of chipping and shredding to add to the compost piles. Carol and I are excited about another year of meeting new guests and welcoming returning friends at the Lazyjack.

The TWM’s annual Spring event Splendor in the Glass is scheduled for April 13th and is looking to be as exciting as ever. The release of the Growing Up on Tilghman cd sequal is scheduled for early Spring also.

Come and visit when the time is right for you!!
