Ellicott City, Maryland

Last weekend, we ventured to the Western Shore of Maryland and visited the historic town of Ellicott City.  Here are a few memories from our time in that quaint little town ... (click photos to enlarge)


As we left home, I noticed a leaf caught in one of our windshield wipers.  That leaf stayed with us for most of the journey.   While we were stopped at one of the stop lights, I grabbed this photo ....
 

Main Street ....
 

The bridge by the Railroad Museum, welcoming visitors to Ellicott City ...
 

This stone house sits at the base of the bridge ....
 

We were climbing an uphill street, trying to locate a church we had seen in the distance, when this orange cat came running out from behind a bush.  He stopped for a moment to look at us and then turned and climbed these steps.  


One of my favorite shops on Main Street was a little Vintage Chic shop called "A Journey From Junk" ... it was filled to the brim with vintage Christmas items

A Pink Christmas ....
 

The town clock ... down by the Railroad Museum
 

A spot for the birds ....
 

Golden Autumn leaves, surrounding the fence in front of the Court House ...
 

Mr. Bob ... the Guardian Cat of one of the Main Street antique stores ....
 

Vintage clothing in one of the antique booths ... this dress made me think of my sister Betty
 
 

Taking a break in front of a little shop called "Vintage Girls" ....
 

"Vintage Girls" window display ....
 
 
A bag hanging outside the door of "Vintage Girls" ....
 

A little body of water, flowing beside the Railroad Museum ....
 

Fence Bokeh .... at the Railroad Museum
 

A train passed by as we were leaving one of the old railway cars outside the Museum ...
 
 
A tempting window advertisement .....
 

Thanks so much for visiting ....

Oh girl, what a feast for the eyes. You know I love them all for various reasons...your perspective in taking the shots, the things that intrigue you, the way you take them and make them into something more...
That one of the leaf & the town clock they go into my favourite Frances file.
Darn that had to have been fun looking over the vintage Xmas shop, too cool!

Frances when you sent us an album of these pictures I said to myself that I'd love to have that dress. It is so me. :) I'm glad you thought of me when you saw it.
