P.J. Gilligan, Burkittsville, Maryland





Hey there!! I have 2 or is it 3 other trips to share before this one actually did happen in life but for some reason I just wanted to share this amazing one real quick 'cause it was so awesome. Not that the other trips were not great as well ...but this one included some awesome must see spots!!! It was a quick getaway over Memorial Day weekend. Come along with me ... & please enjoy!!

What or where are we visiting today, you might ask? Well, it would be "P.J. Gilligan Dry Goods & Mercantile Co. Burkittsville, MD Est 1821". They are frozen in the 1860s. They have a very odd open schedule, so we were super glad they were open when we drove on by. Stop in and look around, but they are only open 11-7pm on Saturdays and 12-7pm on Sundays. I love history ...love stopping in to see some old business that might have had some great historical folks stopping in to see or visit. Look at that step ...who might have step up there? If you are ever in this area please do stop by and see them. Completely forgot to take a picture of what we got ...some handmade soaps. They do wrapped them all up like they did in the day ...brown paper with a twine which was draping from the ceiling. We might be famous too... a husband and wife were shopping, last picture there and he writes a little newspaper ...supposedly he will be write a bit about us shopping in the store. Can't wait to see!!! I'll keep ya posted. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take care. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

Hello Beth, what a neat old place. I am glad they are open for business. Looks like a interesting store with lots of goodies. I have to look at a Maryland map to see where Burkittsville is located?

Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

Beth, this is just our type of place. I love to visit places like this. And one does wonder how long that step has been there! I wonder if it is the original....

Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the campsites ...u get this beachfront view, so peaceful. I really enjoy beach walking, it is like you can hear yourself thinking, u can shake out all the silliness and just be YOU! Hey, God it's me Beth (he's showing off you know, I think he does that 'cause he know I have my camera, was that not nice of him? so cool!!) ...I'm 40 any time you wanna slap, ((I know you don't believe in violence, but sometimes it is needed when we are completely not listening or just missing the point??!)) me across the face and tell me what the heck to do, I am ready??! I am able and willing? You are probably super busy, dealing with other silliness going on. I am probably doing okay ... compared to others. I get it ... I'll keep my ears open. Promise!

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
