Day 31 Solomons Island to Annapolis

 We departed Solomons Island at 0800, as we only had 52 miles to travel today. Small craft advisory was still in effect until 2PM but winds had eased to 10-15 knots with gusts to 20, a slight improvement over yesterday.  Total miles to date 1421.

This is Thomas Lighthouse not to far from Annapolis.
 We never go to Annapolis on a weekend, too many boats.  Much easier during the week.  The marina is dead ahead behind the big yachts.  I was shoe horned in a slip, the smallest boat in the marina.  Very handy to town here.
 As we proceeded up the bay, we saw a tug towing a large barge filled to the brim with containers.
 Dinghy  in Annapolis welcomed by the local mallards.  
 We enjoyed seeing the chapel at the Naval Academy which has been totally redone.  The last time we were here in 2009 it was closed for the renovations.
