Spring Break in Annapolis, Maryland
Over spring break I ventured on a trip with the University of Minnesota Sailing Team to Annapolis, Maryland. We participated in a regatta put on by the naval academy on the Chesapeake Bay. We then held practice for the rest of the week at Severn Sailing Association just across from the Naval Academy base. We rented a small, two bedroom, one bathroom house in historic downtown Annapolis. The streets were cobblestone, the houses compact and the little porches were placed picturesquely in the front. I took some pictures some of my favorite houses and streets. What thrilled me most about the area was the colors used on the houses, fire hydrants, even the fences. I felt like I was in a completely different country. On any trip I take, it always surprises me what changes the distance between two places can bring. Not only in architecture and town layout, but people's personalities and mentalities. I always figured the rumors about east coast kids was an exaggeration, but no, the "coasties" really do exist!
Anyways, I included some of the pictures I took on the trip. Enjoy!
