Fabulous Fairy Houses

We just returned from a day trip to Solomons Island in Southern Maryland. The drive from northern Virginia was quick and easy. When we got to Solomons, we thought we would head straight to the boardwalk, but a sign on the side of the road caught my daugher's eye. It said, "Fabulous Fairy Houses." We did a U turn and headed to a place called Annmarie Garden on Dowell Road. It was worth the trip! What a fabulous place, just like the name said. We loved the Arts Building. We toured the exhibits and then headed outside to find all the fairy houses. They even provide costumes for the kids to wear while looking for the houses. There were about 25 houses all hand made by local artists. One was made out of shells, one out of a horsehsoe crab, another was purple with glitter! We loved it. There were a lot of other activities, but the fairy houses were our favorite. The sculpture was also beautiful!! We also spent quite a bit in the Gift Shop. Go, it is worth the trip. We did eventually make it to downtown Solomons. We loved the Calvert Marine Museum and the boardwalk, but we are quite happy that we went off the beaten track to find this little jewel ---Annmarie Garden Sculpture Park & Arts Center, 13480 Dowell Road in Solomons. www.annmariegarden.org.
