Annapolis

We arrived Yacht Basin Marina, and did laundry, and talked to Au Contraire and Tanuki and went out for dinner at the Yacht Club Au Contraire is a member at.  Great to see everyone and we had a lovely evening.

Now when we arrived the harbour was busy with activity as the Navy Academy had graduation and Donald Trump showed up to give a speech.  Did not come for dinner with us the helicopters and street where busy.

Next day we took a tour.

We also went to church the next day and toured the academy as well.  Now some of  the graduates of class of 2018 from the Naval Academy  got married in this church after the service. When we attended the church service the cadets were actually there and sang as well..

The naval academy was wonderful but to much for me to explore.  However we did visit the museum on what the men or prisoners did when they were captured and they built ships of any kind of bones they could.  This was amazing.

This was all built of bones.

In 2 short days we did a lot of walking and exploring Annapolis is amazing but you need more time.
