Leaving Washington DC, I reentered the eastern portion of Maryland, en route to Delaware and New Jersey. My good luck with the weather on this trip finally ran out; it was raining as I left Washington.
I stopped briefly in the pretty, historic town of Annapolis, while waiting for the rain to stop. Annapolis, on Chesapeake Bay, was founded in 1649, and is Maryland’s capitol. It is also the home of the US Naval Academy (i.e., the US Navy’s university).
From Annapolis, I continued eastwards – on a toll bridge crossing Chesapeake Bay – towards the next state on my list: Delaware.
