Back from Maryland

Ah, my beloved hometown. Annapolis will always be in my heart. How I love the sounds of the boats in the harbor. I grew up on the water hearing the nightly sounds of the Navy rowing crew going up the river with the crew master keeping the time. My father's office was on Maryland Ave, an old cobbled road outside of the Naval Academy gates. These roads were my playground. As a teen I road my bike through the academy and into town a few times a week and enjoyed the harbor and shops and city dock market where I bought the occasional crabcake or a cheap dozen roses to take my mom. (They were perfectly nice though selling for 5 dollars a dozen)

It was in this setting I chose to meet up with my firstborn daughter who as I'm sure any of my few readers know I placed for adoption in 1979. I wasn't given any other options by my parents and would encourage any girl in the same situation today to do all she could to keep her child but that is another story. For those of you who aren't on facebook, I post these few pics of my delightful day out with "my girls" The pictures were all taken downtown, mostly at Carol's Creek Cafe (fabulous food and one of the best wine's I've ever had) and McGarvey's.
