On Sunday I drove to Berkeley Springs, to stock up with their delicious spring water, useful info here. I would be drinking from the same spring that George Washington had long ago loved to bathe in. My first time at filling up, I was curious, wondering if I would be too embarrassed to take my containers if I was the only one there. But it was quite busy, people walking back and forth with 1 gallon plastic bottles, like me, or wheeling in larger containers. This water tasted better than anything you'll find on a shelf, and filling up your own bottles means it's free. The farmers' market was also busy so I strolled over and grabbed an organic chicken burrito for lunch.
I did some research when I got home and discovered that this Land of Giants belonged to George and Pam Farnham. George had once worked as a lawyer in DC but in the 1980's he escaped to come here, with Pam joining him later from New York. They had a few larger than life garden ornaments but when they discovered that there were plans for a housing estate to be built across the road, they created a collection of outhouses, sporting a slogan, "If over-development sucks your well dry, you'll need one of these." That was back in 2006 and there's still no new houses on that land!
Roadside America. I like his flamingo shorts much better.
