Tractor Jams

Location: Port Republic, USA

Calvert County has grown from a community of tobacco farmers and watermen but still retains a lovely rural vibe. On my first visit I saw no less than three tractors on the road and I can tell you I'd much rather follow a farmer on a tractor than an endless line of cars on the Baltimore Washington Parkway. Last week I ventured across the bridge into Amish Country and was squealing in delight at being behind a horse and buggy (I'll take adventure in whatever form I can find it.)

Downtown Port Republic...I don't want to mislead you, there's plenty of stuff just up the road in the next town but this is really all there is to Port Republic's commercial scene.

The local grocery store and may I just say that next to buying ant larvae from old women seated on dusty roads in Thailand, this is our favorite way to shop.

O.K. nothing's perfect... but double rainbows over the water, the crab boats puttering along near the sandbar, the girls on their bikes...it is the kind of place that just inspires a long, deep breath.

Since Bob Evans Down on the Farm Restaurant doesn't qualify as ethnic food, it's off to D.C. and into the back streets of Chinatown.
