Annapolis...adult style!

The kids are in Illinois right now and while we miss them terribly, we decided to take the opportunity to do some things we just don't/can't do while they are here.

We left the dock just before 6pm Friday night for a beautiful evening of sailing.  Perfect breeze, comfy temps, and a gorgeous sunset.  There was no vacancy in the mooring field so we just dropped the hook off USNA.  


Saturday morning we were about to drop the dinghy to head into town when a quick scan with the binos revealed an open mooring ball.  With a possibility of storms that night, we swooped in to claim it.  And then began a lazy day in Annapolis!  We started our gastronomic tour at Sofi's Crepes--yum!  A quick stop at Shades on the Bay, with some fabulous customer service, and the Captain was outfitted with new shades!  We lazily walked the lesser known streets away from the crowds.  I scored a few new hats at Hats in the Belfry before we took a long dinghy cruise up Spa Creek.  Aaahhhhh...  Back in town I got dumped on by a bird!  Oh well!  Joss Sushi Cafe provided a perfect, light lunch before we spent the afternoon reading, sunning, and swimming back at the boat.  

For dinner we got all dressed up and headed to Harry Browne's for dinner.  We found it via Groupon (and got $50 off dinner!) and it was awesome.  We had so much food--spinach Gorgonzola ravioli, grilled watermelon and feta salad, fried green tomato caprese, lamb, scallops and shrimp, wines, and lemon cake--and it was all really good!  The service was great, too.  We were so stuffed that all we could manage after dinner was a little dinghy ride.  Such a perfect night!
