Last week, we took a 90-minute drive north to The Centre Mall in Salisbury, MD. In these parts, it’s the closest to finding major shopping in one location with no tolls. By comparison, heading 90 minutes south to Virginia Beach shopping currently incurs a $17 toll on the Chesapeake Bay-Bridge Tunnel. We preferred to put that $ towards luggage purchases. And, most stores were giving 50% discounts with back-to-school sales — a worthwhile savings trip.
Mall architecture can present FUN photo ops. These SOOC (straight out of the camera) shots were taken with a Canon digital Elph that’s always with me.

More later about WHY we got new luggage. Amazon is our usual way to shop (no 90-minute drive and home delivery). But some things, like luggage, are best seen up close.
