Day 86- Annapolis, MD

Yes, we are still in Annapolis.  It being the self proclaimed sailing capital of the world, we've had plenty to do. Probably the highlight was the really nice day spent with Bill and Margaret exploring the Naval Academy and eating fantastic crab. Another very productive day was spent at the boat show. We were able to pick up critical items like paper charts for the Caribbean, courtesy flags for most of the countries we'll be visiting, a watermaker and lots of floating key chains. Many of the booths at the show give away freebie advertising key chains or lanyards. The kids were challenged to get as many as they could. Great for us, as they were busy. There are other cruising families here! We were invited to a nice potluck where there were kids ranging in age from 7-16.  The other family boats set a disciplined example of doing school work every morning.  We are striving toward this...
Since we have been on a mooring in a protected anchorage (no wind) for more than a week we are low on power. Will have to elaborate on our adventures here once we have our batteries topped off. We will go into DC tomorrow and leave for the Eastern shore of Maryland on Wed..
