Buckle up and get ready for a thrilling adventure on day two! The excitement was palpable as we woke up, feeling more refreshed and alive after adjusting to the time difference. We were determined to make the most of the day, and we wasted no time getting ready, devouring a delicious breakfast, and setting out on a 30-40 minute drive to the enchanting city of Annapolis.
As we approached Maryland’s capital city, the scenery was breathtaking, with the glistening waters of the Chesapeake Bay stretching out before us. Annapolis was everything we had imagined it to be, and more. Known as America’s Sailing Capital, this city was alive with the buzz of tourists and locals alike, and we were immediately drawn into its infectious energy.
The town was compact, yet bustling with life, and we eagerly explored its many nooks and crannies. The atmosphere was electric, with the aroma of seafood wafting through the air, beckoning us to indulge in the city’s delectable culinary offerings.
Despite the crowds, we didn’t let anything get in the way of our adventure, and we managed to find a parking garage nearby, away from the center. It was well worth the effort, as we were treated to the stunning sights and sounds of the city, all within walking distance.
For lunch, we settled on the historic Middleton Tavern, and boy, were we in for a treat! The friendly and attentive staff accommodated our large group in the middle of rush hour, and the food was nothing short of sensational. We ordered a variety of appetizers, from calamari to oysters, and they were so delicious that we had to order them again! My mouth waters at the mere thought of the succulent oysters dipped in a mouthwatering buttery sauce.
After lunch, we wandered around, admiring the quaint boutiques, galleries, and restaurants that lined the streets. The city was a water lover’s paradise, and we soaked in every moment, feeling the fresh sea breeze blowing through our hair.
As the day drew to a close, we reluctantly headed back to our accommodation, feeling invigorated and content after a day well spent. Annapolis had captured our hearts, and we knew that we would be back soon to experience its magic once again.
