Hey there! It’s been a while. I’ve missed you. Since I last wrote on here I have moved to downtown Frederick and am loving being able to walk everywhere. I can’t remember the last time I gassed up my car. I walk to work and I walk to play. I even walk just for the heck of it. Because of all the walking, yesterday my daughter and I had the chance to visit the Farmer’s Market on East Street, something I had always driven past but had never stopped to check out. I went there with an empty back pack and soon loaded it up with juicy white peaches, blueberries, tomatoes and potatoes. There were some good looking loaves of bread, a booth with goat cheese and a guy selling fresh chicken. Fresh flowers were available for purchase as well. We moved on to the Stone Hearth Bakery and bought a delicious loaf of kalamata olive bread and then headed over to Shab Row Wine and Bistro for a glass of wine and a couple appetizers before buying a bottle of wine to add to my increasingly heavy back pack and heading home.
I’m looking forward to exploring Frederick with the fresh eyes of a new downtown resident! What are your favorite walking routes?
