This post is dedicated to my fellow explorers and travelers out there! For those of you in the states, be sure to put Annapolis, Maryland on your list of colonial American towns to visit. Not only is Annapolis the state capital, but it was founded way back in 1694! Many of the original buildings are preserved and in tact today. It is, of course, also home to the U.S. Naval Academy, which is a BEAUTIFUL campus.
Just going to throw my new goal out there: photograph a wedding at the Naval Academy. Just beautiful. I started the day at Saint Mary’s church in town, then walked up Main Street to one of my favorite restaurants, Chick & Ruths Delly. Not only has this place been featured on the Food Network, therefore the food is amazing, but it is so incredibly friendly inside. The owner struck up a conversation with me at the pay counter (he was waiting tables!). Do not miss the opportunity to grab some grub here! This was my second time at Chick & Ruths, and it will not be the last!
Afterwards, I hiked around State Circle, and headed over to the academy where I spent about two hours checking out the buildings and school grounds. I ended up back at the harbor, just in time to see a sailboat head out onto the water.
And onto the U.S. Naval Academy…
Definitely check out this town if you haven’t already!
