Trekking Annapolis: a photo recap one year overdue

Last year around this date my friend and I spent a Saturday walking around Annapolis. We did street photography, toured the Hammond-Harwood House, the cemetery, Main Street, and ended the day on the shores of the Severn River on Seabee Beach across from the Naval Academy. Even the most developed areas of Annapolis do not hold very tall buildings. They’re not too far removed from the beautiful natural surroundings of the area.

Brunch done right: photos from Buddy’s Crabs and Ribs

I don’t remember when I first stepped into Buddy’s Crabs and Ribs on Main Street, Annapolis, but I remember going to brunch there today. I like Sunday brunch, and I’ve gone different places in the past trying to find great food, but ever since I went to Buddy’s, I’ve stopped looking. It’s the go-to place for brunch for tourists and locals alike. Many a midshipman goes there to eat with friends, family or significant others. It delivers the biggest bang for the $12.95 that you pay. The delivery isn’t just in the quality, quantity and diversity of the food—including an omelette bar, carving station, fresh oysters, heck, they have lox ferchrissakes—but the friendly service, warm ambiance and sheer energy of the place make for a great experience to start a day of hitting the town.

Buddy’s can be habit-forming, or, to use a less loaded turn of phrase, it has the makings for a regular Sunday tradition. It’s become one of mine.
