Island Hopper Heads To St. Michaels, MD

Friday, June 19, 2009 Island Hopper left Rock Hall at 10:00 AM to travel to Bob Pascal's St. Michael's Harbour Inn. After securing the boat the crew had lunch aboard island Hopper and then walked into the town center. St. Michael's, once a shipbuilding center, is today one of the region's premier leisure-time destinations. It's ever-growing popularity has resulted in more and more shops, cafes, waterfront restaurants, and inns. In warmer months tourists and boaters crowd its narrow streets and snug harbor. Talbot Street is lined with restaurants, galleries, and all manner of shops. Joan and Debbie went into many shops during their first day. But they were happy that many shops are still left for tomorrow. The crew had dinner at 208 Talbot Restaurant & Wine Bar. The restaurant is unobtrusively situated on St. Michael's busy main street. 208 Talbot, long a favorite among discriminating diners, has several intimate dining rooms with exposed brick walls and brick floors. The crew walked back to the boat ( about 2 miles) to burn off some dinner calories.
