Our trip to Annapolis, Maryland

Red and I spent Monday, the 27th of August, touring around Annapolis. We first took a guided walking tour of the historic area, given by one of the docents who represents the Visitors' Bureau.

This first photo is the rear view and back yard of the Governor's Mansion.

This is a photo of the Post Office.

This is the front of St. John's College.

This is the front view of the Governor's mansion.

These are first year cadets (plebes) polishing the brass rails at the State House.

And I think this was in the court yard across from the State House, with the columns saying "Equal Justice Under Law."

Hi Mary,
I'm so enjoying your blog about your trip back East! I got to see so much that I missed when DH and I went to see our grandson in Norfolk. It sounds like you and Red had a wonderful time, and I'm so glad!

Thanks, Dorothy. I'm so glad you are getting the chance to relive your vacation through our eyes. I'm still trying to get through the Michener novel, Chesapeake. It is so fascinating, and I love the way the story fits right in with the sights we have seen. I'll be posting more in the next day or two.

These photos bring back memories for me, Mary. We spent a lot of time in Annapolis, on the waterfront, and mainly at Lejuene Hall at the Naval Academy where Gina has years of swim meets. Love those plebes! We watched them during their diving practice... oo la la.

Wow Mary, you sure had lots to see every day. There's so much history there...thanks for sharing it with us (who might not ever get out that way again).

I am also enjoying your posts, Mary. I have never been to the East Coast, and sometimes I wonder if I eve will. Your photos are wonderful and I love reading about your trip. Thank you.
