Things Stitched

Annapolis, Maryland

I was a chaperone on the 4th grade trip to our state capital, Annapolis. We first had a tour guide that took us through the state capital building, down Maryland Avenue and to the Navel Academy. Our tour guide, Anne, was just wonderful. I learned so much about the history of our capital. We saw where Senator Haines and Mrs. Stockdale sat during their meetings.

At the Navel Academy, we saw the noon time formation which takes place every day, weather permitting. After formation, they all marched to the dining hall. We saw the statue where the "plebs" attempt to climb every year.

We took a boat ride around the harbor. We could see the Bay Bridge. The captain of the boat played YMCA for the children. We all had a beautiful day!
