Well, I don’t suggest entering the Annapolis Harbor (36NM) during a Blue Angels show but we had no choice as our slip at the Yacht Basin Marina was not available until noon. There were so many boats of all sizes choking the harbor entrance which had shrunk due to the restricted ‘show-box’ area heavily patrolled by the sheriff and coast guard. Once we made it through to the marina and tied-up the boat we could enjoy the show. It is graduation day from the Annapolis Naval Academy and the air show began at noon and will go (on & off) all day. It is truly amazing to be sitting on the boat, in this historic harbor, watching the six F/A-18 Hornets scream by. After the show we walk around this great town and then return to the marina as we have been invited to our first ‘Looper’s Docktail Party’. Thank you Penny Battles and Dave Burnes on their pretty yacht Southern Cross. We had a great time getting to know some fellow Loopers…I think I better get some more boat cards printed!!!
