Day Trip Back Out to Annapolis

The ladies and I decided to take a day trip to Annapolis, MD. It’s just an hour or so down the road, but a good trip to get away for a few hours. We got something to eat, walked around, bought some souvenirs, but mainly took a boat trip around the bay.

Our first concern was how Najwa would like being on the boat, in the middle of the water. Not like we could get off if she determined this wasn’t for her and threw a tantrum. Surprisingly, though, the exact opposite happened. She enjoyed it so much that when it was time to get off the boat, she went crazy.

Hydroplaning All The Way To New England

Road trips aren’t necessarily my favorite, not when we’re driving for more than two hours, but heading north isn’t as bad because of the scenery from the road. As opposed to driving south. We were headed to Massachusetts for one of Nduku’s friend’s pre-wedding celebration.

The plan was to leave before rush hour started, but Nduku got stuck waiting for a rental car to become available. Note to self: never rent from Dollar. And we ended up with a Ford Focus. Not the worst car in the world, but little did we know we were headed into a monsoon and the Focus wasn’t quite the best car for it.

Until then, though, we had pleasant weather. We made it through Baltimore enjoying the usual view from the highway. There’s skyscrapers, the boats in the harbors and ports, the sports stadiums and the tunnel taking us under the bay.

Day Trip to North Beach

Every summer we’ll take a day trip to the ocean [or in this case the bay]. For this year’s 4th of July, we went to North Beach, just north of Chesapeake Beach in Maryland. Last time Najwa was in the area she was just a little bump on Nduku’s figure.

Visiting Annapolis, MD and The U.S. Naval Academy

Shay, one of Nduku’s friends, was in town visiting, and we all took a trip out to Annapolis, MD. We walked around a bit, checked out the water, visited the Naval Academy and walked around some more.
