Around (Another) Town: Boating in Annapolis



In an effort to try and capitalize on the dwindling days of summer, I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Annapolis to spend some time on the Chesapeake Bay. Though the hubs hates spontaneity, he kindly agreed to accompany me and go boating. I'm glad he did, because we had a great time! The weather was perfect, and being on the water was soooo relaxing.

We admired the beautiful waterfront homes, viewed the U.S. Naval Academy, and stopped for ice cream at the ANNAPOLIS ICE CREAM COMPANY.


We also passed this nice Alex Haley monument.

If you live in the area and need a quick getaway, definitely give it a try. There are many family friendly boat and walking tours available. You can learn more about things to do in Annapolis HERE.

  3. Hello,

    We have discovered you via the delightfully charming GSL and the comment which you left on his blog.

    Annapolis looks to be utterly charming, just the sort of place which we should love to visit and explore. Sometimes these spontaneous events can be so much more satisfying than things one has planned for months. Less expectation and often they turn out to be truly magical, as clearly your time proved to be!

  10. Hi, I stopped by to thank you for stopping by my place. I LOVE your home, and I am soooo jealous of where you reside. Boston/Maine/Maryland/RI/Vermont are all places that I would love to live. I sometimes get on craigslist and go to the real estate in those areas and just drool. I wanted to follow, but couldn't find a place to follow???

    1. Hi Teresa, thanks. I love looking at real estate in other areas too :-) I just added a follow option on the right side bar. Thanks for pointing out it was missing.
