So here are the planned events. On Saturday, May 4th and May 11th, I am going to The Shrine Of Saint Anthony the chapel opens at 9;00 am and I will be in the Chapel until 9:30 am. From the Chapel I am going to walk the trails for approximately 1 1/2 hours then around 11:00 am I am going to have a picnic lunch. After lunch at approximately noon I am going to go to The Grotto which will take about 45 minutes so I will get to the Grotto around 1:00 pm. I will spend about one hour at the Grotto and leave at approximately 2:00 PM. From the Grotto I am then going to Berrywine Plantations/Linganore Winecellars for a glass of wine; I should get there at around 3:00 pm.

Two things I should make clear first I will have lunch at the Shrine of St Anthony near the open-air Shrine to St. Maximilian Kolbe at around 11:oo am.

Next, I have never been to the Berrywine Plantations/Linganore Winecellars but other one I have been to have a place both inside and outside to have a glass of wine. This should be the same but nothing ventured nothing gained as they say.

Hi Greg! Are you planning on doing these things on two (2) dates? May 4th AND May 11th? If so I'd be interested in meeting you on the 11th. I'm from Baltimore originally and my niece lives in Mt. Airy. Is the baseball game a no go? Of course I'd love to see the NYY and the O's play! Come on you PA, MD, NY, NJ and VA peeps let's get together and have fun meeting up! smile
