Life, art, and nature on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

It was Waterfowl Festival weekend, and the weather couldn't have been better. Plenty of sunshine and mid-fifties, so not too warm for all those tourists in their "fresh from Orvis" outdoor gear. Just exactly right. 
Actually, Easton is a charming town to stroll around in any time of year, but never more so than when the leaves are crunchy underfoot and there's still plenty of fall color.
We had such a good time yesterday, that we went back again today and took the dogs.  It sometimes seems, there are as many dogs as people at this event.
Found this beauty among the conservation and green exhibits in the Waterfowl Chesapeake Pavilion.
Stopped at this old favorite for lunch. Mason's.
Their front porch was the perfect perch for people/dog watching.
I have a thing for whiskery dog faces.
Bartlett Pear Inn offered this treat, but we passed.

Tempted by this little house because it reminded me of our first.
And by these. Obviously. Mabel's little lemon bundt cakes are too good for words. 
Stopped to say hello to the yarn shoppe Yorkie.
Fell in love several times, but especially with the many German Short-Haired Pointers we saw, and most especially with this one.
And this old sweetie, because there will always be a special place in my heart for yellow labs.
Spent some time both days at the Delmarva Dock Dog competition. Had such a great time, and got so many good pics, that I'll do a separate post, but here's a peek.
Our neighbor competed (and won, go Sammie!!) with her Springer Spaniel, Samantha.

Each dog has its' own unique style. 
Great food, wildlife art, dock dogs, retriever trials, shopping, wine tasting, duck fat popcorn, etc...I'm thinking you and your dog should probably plan on attending next year.

If you don't have a four-legged best friend of your own, visit Talbot Humane. They brought some real cuties to the festival.
Later gators!! XO.
