Dudley’s Chapel

IMGP0794We spent a few days of vacation at the Chesapeake Bay last week. The Chesapeake Bay was our third choice of places to go. We had planned to go elsewhere but changed our minds due to the mid-April snowstorm. Our second choice (the Delaware coast) was also a no-go due to coastal flooding warnings. We finally settled on the Chesapeake Bay!

We stayed around the Kent Narrows area, in Grasonville, MD. We mostly went there to rest and be renewed. While there we biked the Cross Island Trail (about 10 miles round trip). The shop owner of the shop where we rented bikes, referring to the cool temps and heavy wind, said, “you’re very brave.” But we survived!

Two of the better places we ate were The Narrows and Annie’s. Between the two of us we ate crab cake, Cajun Pecan crusted catfish, and Grilled Swordfish.

Looking through some visitor’s information on our last full day there, we saw a listing for Dudley’s Chapel, one of the oldest Methodist buildings in the US, dating back to 1783. Several early Methodist preachers, including America’s first Methodist Bishops, Francis Asbury and Thomas Coke, preached there.

It was a cool experience to walk around the facility (unfortunately, it wasn’t open) where great Methodist leaders who shaped a movement once preached.
