An Overcast Day in Annapolis

The snow is falling as I type this post. It’s pretty but like almost everyone in the DC Metro area, I am so over it. Oh well, no sense in complaining about something I have absolutely no control over, right? Clay’s parents were in town over the weekend for Violet’s baptism. On Saturday, the temperatures reached a whopping 55 degrees so we took advantage of the heat wave and drove up to Annapolis for the afternoon. We walked on the old brick sidewalks among the 17th and 18th century buildings, spending the majority of our time on the waterfront. After a quick visit to the Naval Academy, we grabbed a late lunch (early dinner?) at the Middleton Tavern (four-word review – great service, mediocre food). And we rounded out our visit with some waffle ice cream cones from Kilwins (salted caramel for the win). IMG_3227IMG_3232IMG_3235IMG_0739IMG_3220 Historical Annapolis is filed away under ‘Places We Love But Probably Won’t Be Able to Afford to Live In‘. For as much as we love the water, it is quite amusing that Clay chose the Army over the Navy. We’re hoping the next place the Army sends us has as much access to water as our time as afforded us here. Wishful thinking, right?

    I love Kilwin’s. Everything they have is delicious. And oh so bad for me … Hope your snow stops soon!

      Thankfully the snow is already starting to melt.

    My hometown! Glad you found a semi-warm day to visit. My vote for ice cream is Storm Brothers, though. Maybe because I’ve been going there since age five…

      I’ll have to check out Storm Brothers next time we’re there. We chose Kilwins based on it’s proximity to our car, due to cranky children. :)

    what a fantastic picture of Clays parents. I always enjoy your scenery photos of places I’ll probably never see.

    Karen, what stroller is that? I’m in the market for a lightweight stroller for our jaunts…

      Hi Karisa – it is a Chicco Liteway. I love it and highly recommend it!
