We had tickets for a Friday evening folk music performance at the Avalon Theatre in Easton, MD. One of the performers was a college classmate that we have not seen since then. We planned to drop by the lot and inspect the progress on our way.
We left work a bit early and caught the Rte. 50 traffic on WTOP: slow across the Severn River Bridge but moving well after that. We avoided the Severn bridge by driving across Annapolis; this was not entirely painless as many other drivers had the same idea. Once on Rte. 50, traffic moved well.
It was a pleasant Summer evening, and Chestertown was lively with people out and about. Something to look forward to when we are moved out there.
The excavation and footers were all done as expected. I took lots of pictures (of course!) and exclaimed as I note the locations of the rooms. My wife was not as excited, but pleased with the progress. We only had a few minutes to spend before heading to Easton.
The performance at the Avalon was delightful. The musicians came out to the lobby afterward. The college classmate remembered my wife’s name; she was amazed.
