Another “PICTORIAL – in an attempt to catch up on our blog……the rest of our stay in Annapolis. With people everywhere, it was an awesome stop with so much to see and do….
From sunrise to sunset, and double rainbows in between…..
People lined the streets and docks to watch the Blue Angels perform and the continuous boat parade on Ego Alley…..
After day one, we scooted from the marina side (very expensive), to the city dock side (first come – first served), where we spent the next several days….
The elementary school was within sight of our dock and children were dropped off for school by boat. There were “characters” roaming through Annapolis in period costumes, and we even saw Monks walking the streets.
The bronze statue of Alex Haley sits at the end of Ego Alley. Author Alex Haley (1921-1992) was best know for works depicting the struggles of African Americans. Raised in Henning, Tennessee, he began writing to help pass the time during his two decades with the U.S. Coast Guard. Next, a store window display of a winter scene made out of cookies!
