We've seen Annapolis by land and by sea but no matter how we approach Annapolis, it is always one of our favorite stops.
Yet this time was different. It was the first time we approached Annapolis by sea during the sailing season and for the first time we learned exactly what it is like to approach the US Sailing Capital by water dodging other boaters as we approached.
Once in Annapolis I was anxious to get to land. We'd been to plenty of interesting little towns in the last week or so but one thing they all had in common was that their shopping districts were still closed for the season. Annapolis would be different. Shopping would be plentiful. In the end, we didn't buy anything, but we did find something we hadn't seen before - the electronic yodeling pickle. Perhaps, I'll just close with that.
