The 4.3 mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge, which you have to drive...

The town dock.

Restaurants and the lighthouse at the dock.

Now a bed and breakfast inn, this house was built in 1667.

This one is much newer -- built in 1792.

And the most modern of all -- 1800.

Our timing leaves a lot to be desired. Not only did the government shutdown scuttle our plans to visit Gettysburg and Washington, D.C., but we arrived in Annapolis on Boat Show weekend. For us land lubbers, that's a HUGE deal here. It means the already narrow streets of Annapolis are totally clogged with boat shoppers and lookie-loos, and so are the restaurants, shops, etc. I love poking around the downtown/harbor area but I didn't love the idea of dealing with trying to find a place to park the truck and elbow our way through the crowds, so we went to my next most favorite place -- St. Michaels, Maryland, on the eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful drive. We had lunch at the C Street Saloon. It's in a historic old building, and the food was great. (It sounds like all we do is eat. Well, I guess that's pretty close to the truth.) We strolled around town and walked down to the town dock. The boats are cool to look at, but I love the old, historic houses. It is a beautiful, authentic coastal town.

We came back to the RV and did a few maintenance necessities to get ready to start moving west tomorrow morning. But in the meantime, we had a very delightful dinner and visit with Dave and Carol at a brand new restaurant owned by a friend of theirs just down the road from here. A great evening all around.
