Bicycling Around Annapolis

Today was a gorgeous day in the DC area:  65F or so, and sunny, with a light breeze.  We decided to bicycle around Annapolis, and Kathy found a bicycle tour guide on  We drove into Annapolis, parked the truck, and hopped on our bikes.  Here's Kathy at the gateway to this pretty city:
We bicycled all over historic Annapolis, but were turned away at the gate to the Naval Academy (presumably for general security reasons, not because we were being disruptive).  We stopped for a latte at The Annapolis Bookstore, a comfy, quaint used book shop and cafe near State Circle.  After biking around the marinas and down Dock Street and over the Compromise Street Bridge, we lunched at the Carroll's Creek Cafe, having our first taste of Pepe Nero, a dark Belgian style farmhouse ale brewed with peppercorns by Goose Island.  Then it was off and about through all the neighborhoods, cruising past mansions and modest houses along the water, and finally to Quiet Waters Park, which is a beautiful large swatch of ground South of the main historic district and marinas.  The high point of the park is the South River Overlook:
Then back we pedaled, through town, to our truck and home.

By popular demand, we post photos of our campfire cookout out backa the RV.  Kathy caught David lounging by the fire --
