To those of you who are new here, George is our 5-year-old border collie. The only car he’s ever really known is our Honda Element and exactly one week ago, we bought a new Subaru Outback and he had yet to go for a ride in it.
So today was the day.
He looks a little disconcerted to me.
But he soon perks up as we head down the driveway for a “ride in the car.”
Say that in our house and watch what happens.
(Pure doggie bliss).
We drove south for awhile, then headed over the Chesapeake City Bridge after buying some fish at a market along the way.
This is a high bridge that traverses the C&D (Chesapeake & Delaware) Canal.
My view west.
When I looked at all these images on my computer, I felt they were too glaring. I wanted softness, something much more calming, and so I edited them in Photoshop using a Gaussian blur technique I learned. Let me know if you'd like to learn it and I'll do a post about it.
Now the images were what I was looking for.

We drove around for a little while, looking things up in the car manual, my husband getting a good feel for this vehicle (which is awesome, btw) and then we headed north towards home, coming through the back side of Chesapeake City.
The town park by the water.
My favorite restaurant is the last building by the water there.
We have been going there for (OMG) nearly 30 years, since back when we lived in Pennsylvania. It was so good, and so worth travelling the extra miles for this place.
And then some more driving, and finally home and we were heading up the driveway towards the old manor house on the hill. We opened the windows so George could stick his head out (one of his favorite things).
You don't have to answer that.
