We anchored in the Severn River, nearby Loon and just outside
the US Naval Academy. We dropped Merlin (dinghy) into the water and set
off to find Kenny in town. He was due to leave the following day, as he
was taking Loon back up to Boston with a mate for the Summer. It was also
Sarah’s last day, so we said our farewells to everyone and set out exploring the
delights of Annapolis; America’s Sailing Capital!
Bye Bye Kenny – hope to see
you sometime soon?
Our visit to the US Naval Academy campus and museum was
most interesting and informative. It was a well set out venue and one we
will most definitely return to (see next blog for photos). We also managed
to get tickets for the Summer Garden Theatre where Chicago, the musical was
being performed. We wondered why folk were concerned about the weather and
only realised the reason why, once we had sat down. It was virtually (90%)
an open air theatre, so when it rains (which it did for 5 or 10 mins), the play
stops and a natural interval occurs. We gathered that many of the
actors had worked on Broadway, so it was an excellent production and only U$ 18
per person too!
In Annapolis, near the docks
we came across the following bronze’s

We ended up staying in Annapolis for a week, which also
enabled us to get some quotes for a new stainless steel arch for Nimue and the
new batteries checked, as they didn’t appear to be performing that well.
We also made preparations for our next big destination – New
