Annapolis, Maryland by SAILBOAT!

27 September 2011
We were able to provision our boat on Sunday thanks to a car loan from a lovely lady in the Bert Jabins Dockside Cafe and Store. We took advantage of the opportunity and stopped to pick up a few more supplies at West Marine as well as more wine. Our sailing buddies, Kathy and John, stopped by and John helped us rewire our anchor light. It seems that LED lightbulbs when put in have to be checked because if they are put in upside down they won't work - so you can guess why our bulb was not working!
With a full galley, water tank, fuel tank and eager to set out we finally left the Marina at 11:00 on Monday, September 26th. We stopped to pump out along the way out of Back Creek because someone, who shall remain nameless (once again) left the pump up on the head.

We set out to the Cheasapeake Bay and were excited to try to find out exactly where we were by reading the nuns and can markers. We were especially cautious because we were told of a long shoal and we did not want to go aground. Surprisingly, we did not go aground and found our way up - really a short distance to Ego Alley. Ego Alley is where all of the very expensive boats parade and stay to show off their boats. We couldn't believe all of the million dollar + boats along the way. We managed to find a space along the wall in downtown Annapolis on Ego Alley. We are the boat with the mini-ego! We decided to stay right downtown rather than anchor out or take a mooring because it was suppose to rain...again. However, we ended up having a fabulous sunny day in Annapolis, stopping to buy books, and enjoyed stopping for Rum drinks and a great lunch at Pussers Restaurant that is right on the waterfront . Where we are tied up is a great location, but it is a challenge to sleep, as there are many people up partying along the waterfront and a local homeless man decided to have a shouting conversation with someone (maybe himself) at around 2:30AM.

We learned that the rain would come the next day so we decided to stay another night on the wall. Tuesday we went to the Maryland State Capital and Wiley stood right where George Washington surrendered his commission as commander in chief of the Continental Army along with all of the extraordinary powers that congress had given him: something that had never occurred before that in all history, and seldom since. We went back to the Naval Base to peruse the book stores We also went to the Banneker- Douglas Museum where Merry was persuaded to get into the cutaway of a crate that a young woman held as a slave used to express mail herself North to freedom. Wiley is in "history heaven". We enjoyed French Crepes for lunch and dodged the rain most of the day. We plan on moving the boat to an anchorage tomorrow and will rent a car to go to Washington D.C. We learned that boating up the Potomac to Washington D.C would take quite a bit of time that we would prefer to use moving south. We are both looking forward to seeing the Martin Luther King monument, Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial Wall, etc. etc.
