Hi there lovely people,
As promised, here is another blog post before you were able to say “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” 🙂
In today’s blog post I thought I can share with you my well spent weekend with the fellow fellows (get it? Fellow fellows, LOL.. okay, sorry about that, back to the real story now) I thought I can share the weekend we had in both Washington, D.C. and Annapolis, MD with some recommendation on what to do if you ever find yourself in one of these places.
Believe it or not but we had a summer weekend in February (or as my friend Anna likes to call it: When February feels like June), which is quite rare I must say, but we sure did not let it pass by without getting a proper tan and plan a day trip to Annapolis, Maryland. I am always in for day trips and I think Annapolis was such a great choice … It is such a magical place!
No wonder they call it America’s Sailing Capital!
We didn’t really plan much for our day trip. The only planning we had was renting the car and choosing our destination (so much for planning, huh?). I guess we simply wanted to have a relaxed, close enough, get away and Annapolis just happened to be right there, and when I say right there, I mean 50 km east of Washington , D.C. 🙂 But hey, who cares? It was a day well spent.
As most of us are coffee lovers, you can already guess what was the first place we wanted to go to as we parked our car… Where is the nearest Coffee shop, please?
Their coffee was good! And having the chance to sip on our cappuccino as we soak in the sunshine was priceless. So definitely check them out if you are in Annapolis. Look for Hard Bean Coffee!
We then took a stroll along Annapolis Port, and I, of course, had to stop and take a picture on a Harley Davidson, because yachts and sailboats are just not as cool, JK! This one is for you, daddy :*
It is so great when you don’t have to rush anywhere and you can stop and appreciate kind people’s offers ( Thank you, kind man with a Harley Davidson 🙂 ), when you can stop and appreciate the beauty of your surrounding, like these amazing buildings we later encountered as we were walking around the United States Naval Academy, located just across the port in Annapolis, MD.
True, we didn’t plan much for our day trip but we were able to use our time wisely and enjoy the warm weather!
We didn’t stop there, though! Nope.. We decided to drive to St. Michael, which was close by… and look for a private beach for us to chill and read book and, of course.. SKIP ROCKS!
After finishing our tournament, we started feeling hungry and decided to look for a good place to grab a bite and that is when we stumbled upon Ava’s @St. Michaels, MD… It was so delicious! I got their Middle Eastern Pizza and I highly recommend it! As a Middle Eastern myself I must say it exceeded my expectation in terms of flavour and texture.
Sorry for the long post friends but I really wanted to walk you through our well spent Annapolis day… Stay tuned for A Weekend Well Spent (Part 2) in Washington, D.C.
