Winnie the Pooh would love it here today for it is a blustery day in Annapolis MD today. There are white caps on the Severn River and in the bay with 2 – 3 ft waves. That doesn’t stop the many sailors in and around Annapolis as they are out off the the US Naval Academy seawall sailing for pleasure and racing in the several regattas going on in the area today.
When I left from the front porch of Flag House Inn B&B to walk around the seawall at USNA I had no idea how windy it was. But as I faced the winds coming in from the SW my visor was almost blown off so I just pulled it down, tucked my head and headed out for a glorious walk around the US Naval Academy grounds. The only sporting events today were on the water so I didn’t bump into many other folks while I was out enjoying the wind, the changing clouds and the every changing look on and around the Severn River, Spa Creek and out into the Chesapeake Bay.
At the City Dock today and tomorrow there is a collection of classic wooden sailboats for everyone to see. A low-key race in and around the City Dock will take place at 11 AM. For more information go to http://www.nshof.org and read more about it on the National Sailing Hall of Fame website which is just a short walk from the Flag House Inn B&B.
Tomorrow, Sunday, Sept 22, the second annual CureSearch Walk for Children’s Cancer will begin at 10 AM in the Susan Campbell Park at the City Dock. Their goal is $50,000 and are currently just $4000 short of achieving it. So, come into town tomorrow and join the festivities to raise awareness for Children’s Cancer research and donate a few dollors to help reach the goal.
