Inauguration Part 2 – Annapolis and the Party

Once in Annapolis, Ginger quickly showed me around town – I was really bummed that it had to be such a short tour! I think it was about then that I decided that Wednesday had to be my touring Annapolis day….

I’m floored by what an important city Annapolis is historically. Did you know that Washington resigned his commission in the Annapolis Capital building? This led to the US being civilian ruled rather than militarily ruled! Huge, huge thing. I even stood on that spot… but that comes after the inauguration.

Anyway, we did the quick drive through and headed back to Ginger’s fabulous house. Her husband designed and built it more than 20 years ago and I just love the warm feel of it.

Everyone was already there for the football game (which I didn’t even watch for a second!), but took the time to come over and say hi. They were all incredibly nice, funny and just a wonderful group of people! We stayed up a little too late telling ghost stories, planning for the inauguration and joking around about silly stuff. An awesome evening!

The next morning, I got up and wandered around Ginger’s expansive back yard, just off the Severn River, for a little while shooting photos and enjoying the cool air before we headed to DC.

What a gorgeous location for a glass of wine on a warm summer evening!
