Our trip to DC was fun and successful. I spent the morning in the State Department Office of Authentications. Bet you’ve never heard of that one. I had to get some documents authenticated in order for the Finnish embassy to release my passport. After delivering the docs to the very modern embassy building (fancy compare to the El Salvador embassy which was basically a strip mall store front with a flag in front) we saw the White House, had a tour of the Treasury Dept Bureau of Printing and Engraving (see Mia's blog for more info) and went to the Air and Space museum. I could spend a lot more time exploring DC.
From Annapolis we sailed south to the West River and anchored for the night. In the morning we walked in to Galesville, a nice southern feeling town, to mail a letter. We spent the rest of the day sailing to Solomons, MD.
