WELCOME!

This is Buzzy's Country Store blog designed to keep you apprised of what's going on at the Store. Buzzy's is a general store located in St. Mary's County, Southern Maryland near Pt. Lookout State Park. Buzzy and Jean Ridgell purchased the Store from Jean's father Harry Raley in 1953. Buzzy operated it until his passing in 2009. His son J. Scott Ridgell is the current owner.

Maryland Lighthouse Challenge This Weekend

Speaking of lighthouses (in my previous post), the 8th Annual Maryland Lighthouse Challenge will be held this coming weekend at all of the Chesapeake Bay area lighthouses including of course our very own Pt. Lookout Lighthouse. (Click here for more info.) 
Last year a couple from Buffalo were in Buzzy's Country Store participating in the event.  They had flown into BWI, rented a car and were doing the tour of all ten lighthouses.  When I asked them how Point Lookout compared to the others, they noted that Pt. Lookout is one of the few lighthouses that really does have a house with it.  That and the fact that it is supposedly haunted, made Pt. Lookout a must see for them.  Wonder if they will be back for this year's event.  Hopefully, the ghosts will be hospitable.
