We arrived in Annapolis early Thursday afternoon on a rainy but not windy day, passing under the massive Chesapeake Bay Bridge;
and the terrific folks at Bert Jabin and A & B yacht service immediately began working on the macerator. As with all repairs the project continued into the following am but was completed so we had enough time to rent a car and tour Annapolis. While the work was being done on Thursday we did the classic cruiser errands of water, cat food, propane refill – all the things too heavy to carry back from grocery stories when nearby. The highlight of Friday was walking the campus of the Naval Academy. And Michigan State was playing Navy in basketball the night we were there!! Go GREEN. Also met some Belgians who have been cruising for 3 years and waiting major repairs to their boat at Jabin from a nasty encounter with some rocks when their anchor broke loose.
For dining we enjoyed Sam’s Waterfront the first evening, a healthy .8 mile walk from the marina, with Cuban sliders for Jay and Steak/frites for Cindy treated with a slightly overwhelming balsamic vinegar sauce. Then Friday night was Pusser’s Landing on the mall in Annapolis connected to the Marriott Hotel, a nice throwback to the original in Tortola but just okay food.
