The weather is warming and our cherry trees in the backyard are full of buds and just beginning to pop open. This is such a beautiful time of year as the early spring flowers begin to bloom. As I walked on the Naval Academy grounds today I was greeted by a flood of daffodils blooming just inside the main entrance to USNA. A slight wind had them in motion evoking thoughts of waves on the water. The perfect setting to begin a walk around “the yard” with so many other walkers and runners out enjoying early morning peace and quiet along the waters opening into the Chesapeake Bay.
Warmer weather means more activities happening in the area. On Sunday, March 27, there is a baseball double header between Navy & Princeton. In between the games the “Racing Presidents” (mascots of the Washington Nationals baseball team) will be in attendance for all to enjoy.
In April the Historic Annapolis Foundation has numerous events planned for locals as well as visitors to our lovely city. On Saturday, April 2 music will be presented at the James Brice house featuring David and Ginger Hildebrand performing on period instruments singing 18th century pieces. The following Saturday, April 9 visit the William Paca House to learn about cleanliness (or lack there of) and how people cared for themselves to stay well in colonial America.
There is warmer weather, to be sure, but still a nip in the air so bring a jacket or sweater when coming to Annapolis as one never knows when the breezes over the cool water will cause you to need another layer to stay comfortable.
