Vacationing on the Atlantic Ocean
Driving is a bit different in these parts of the country, there is traffic everywhere and through West Virginia and Maryland we have hills to where we were almost unable to use the cruise control mechanism since they were constant.
Last year we went across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge & Tunnels, now this year we made it across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge which was a bit more accelerating than the tunnels, much higher and it seems like it was much longer but it was not, only much more intense.
While we were traveling to get to the Atlantic Ocean, we made a stop in Canton for an overnight stop and stayed at a Fairfield Inn, we always like those hotels and this one was great. We decided to just order in and was going to opt for Domino’s but the front desk recommended Pizza Oven and it was fabulous. The wings were crispy but the insides were so moist and scrumptious and the garlic and herb seasonings were spot on. As for the pizza, well we always knew that pizza just tastes better back east and this one was by far a great tasting pizza, so much stuff on it that we could barely hold it and almost needed a knife and fork to eat it. The taste was so good and the portion was humungous, we had enough leftovers for a complete meal the next night. They have locations throughout the Canton, Ohio area and we would highly recommend them.
We made it to the ocean and now for some more R&R on the Atlantic…
On one of the days we lunched at The Greene Turtle, across from the Carousel Hotel we were staying at and the food was great.
We started with the Crab Dip & Pretzels and loved the creaminess of the dip and the pretzels were soft and so flavorful.
Jerry had the Hog Hammers Feast which was 4 hammers which are hog shanks that fell off the bone with a rich, spicy sauce lathered on them.
I had the Chicken Chesapeake which was a chicken breast sandwich with a few additions of bacon, cheese and crab dip. The chicken was tender and the crab dip was creamy and had a load of crab meat in it.
Life is good when we can hang out on the Atlantic and to taste different types of food depending on the area we are in at the time.
