AnnapolisIf you live in the suburbs of DC and haven’t done this yet, I’d highly recommended a trip to the sailing capital of the US: Annapolis, Maryland. This pleasant, European-flavored city located on the Chesapeake Bay is also the capital of the state.

This picture was taken some weeks ago as the air was just getting crisp when we took a trip east so I’d have some idea what this city has to offer. I enjoyed watching the sail boats and wandering around the city’s tiny streets. It was also fascinating to see a public event — a national women’s sailboat race — organized by female sailors, which was a unique site for my Jordanaian eyes. The picture is, as usual, courtesy of the one and only hubby.
