We both took the day off work on Friday and arrived at about lunch time. The room we had booked at a bed and breakfast wasn't ready so we took a walk down Main Street and then walked over to the Naval Academy. We opted for a self guided tour around the campus after watching a short video in the visitor's center. On our tour we found the Navy sailboats above, Memorial Hall, the Naval Academy Chapel, and the crypt of John Paul Jones. After all that, I needed something to eat. We walked back into town and each of us got a little snack, mine was more like a meal, at the Annapolis MarketHouse. After some eating and people watching we walked up to the State House. Matt was super excited about this. And he's probably really disappointed I don't remember all the reasons it's a very historic place. I do remember that it's the oldest state capitol and, and was the nation's capitol until 1784.

Saturday morning we had breakfast at Chick and Ruth's Delly. After breakfast we went to an exhibit on slavery at the Historic Annapolis Museum. This museum was very tiny. It was also an ideal museum for both of us. Matt got to read every single word, on every single artifact, without me bothering him because the museum was half slavery half shopping. Interesting combination, but it really worked out for both of us. Before heading home on Saturday afternoon, I dragged Matt through a few of the cute little shops on Main Street.
