Our road trips sometime start as a craving. Our craving this week? Doughnuts! But, we didn’t just want a big chain doughnut. A quick internet search led us to the Jefferson Pastry Shoppe. Located at 3738 Jefferson Pike in Jefferson, MD, the Shoppe isn’t much to look at on the outside but it is what is on the inside that really counts. We loaded up on a dozen fantastic doughnuts, a half dozen of delicious cookies, and a couple of “just okay” flatbreads. If you are looking to satisfy your sweet tooth you should definitely try this place out.
If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.
