Maryland Crab Feast

Just a stone’s throw from St. Michaels’ historic drag runs a pretty brick lane just tempting you to drive down it.

It leads to one of the best resort properties on the East Coast (and not just in my opinion)!

We loved every minute of our time spent here, the site of our wedding weekend – The Inn at Perry Cabin.

The day after our wedding, we shuffled into our slippers and padded out onto the porch for breakfast al fresco.

These views aren’t too shabby!

Morning breakfast

Nothing like a strong cup of joe and a hearty BLT with farm fresh eggs to get your motor runnin’.

Revved up, we actually did nothing but spend the rest of the morning loafing around by the pool with our friends.

The girls sunned ourselves and nattered about the prior evening’s happenings while the boys played a friendly (ahem, competitive) match of croquet.

Later that afternoon we headed over to lunch at the Crab Claw. This was our way of indoctrinating our out-of-town guests into one of the basics of Maryland life – the crab feast.

Crab Shack

Situated right on the water with views across the marina, everyone began to arrive suitably attired to the “Red, White and Blue” dress code and ready to get crabby!

The buffet was even stocked with cookies compliments of my fairy godmother, Lisa! They were adorable little crabs and nautical striped shortbreads with our new monogram.

With pitchers of beer and Bloody Marys flowing, our guests were having a great time.

But then again, how could they not, with charming hosts like us to amuse them?

Later we headed over to C Street Saloon to watch the races, play a little pool, and hang out.

It was a rowdy all-American shindig in the end, with people dancing on the pool tables!
