There is plenty yet for us to discover both in Washington D.C. and Baltimore, but when John suggested a drive to the eastern shore, I readily agreed. I think that both of us had enough of the craziness and hectic pace of large cities! Wednesday was going to be perhaps our only free day of the week, so that seemed to be a good choice. From Baltimore we crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and soon we were driving through farm land and forests, which pretty much characterizes the nature of the northern section of the eastern shore. We followed signs to the scenic by-way SR 213 which, according to our tour books, claimed to offer easiest access to scenic and historic attractions. In the town of Wye Mills we found the Old Wye Mill, which produced flour for George Washington's troops at Valley Forge. Near the mill is Wye Church, a restored Colonial building with a flying pulpit and box pews. As you can see in the picture below, next to the pulpit are two lecterns, they are located in the middle of the church, not at the chancel. On the walls are candle holders, the church is still being lit only with candles. Also hanging from the balcony is the coat of arms of King George I (Queen Victoria, 1837). The Vestry House, built in 1763, is near the church.
