In December 2002 my husband and I had the chance to visit the USA. Ann and John Jeffcoat ("Chesachobees"-kennel) living close to Baltimore invited us to stay with them. So naturally we first went to the Chesapeake Bay, where the Chesapeake Bay Retriever originate from. A beautiful area, covered with snow and xmas-decorations everywhere! We also visited the Maritime Museum at St. Michaels to inform ourselves about the Chesapeake Bay and the breed's heritage.

Then we went sightseeing a little to learn more about this beautiful country! We visited Harpers Ferry - a small village where everything is kept like in 1860 and where the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet as well as the three states Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. We also went on the skyline-drive through the Shenandoah National Park and had a look at the large caverns at Luray which were very impressive!

We also visited Mount Vernon, where George Washington once lived and had a quick look at Washington D.C. and Baltimore. One evening we went out for dinner with Ann and John where we had a huge pile of shrimps and blue crabs, a speciality of that area and  absolutely delicious!

We would have loved to spend more time in this fascinating country! Thanks to Ann and John for taking care of us - we enjoyed our stay very much and we surely come back again!
