Trekking Annapolis: a photo recap one year overdue

A view of main street A shop off the beaten path Skaters at the Smart dealership Angel at the cemetery A few sailboats The shores of the Severn river

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.

More photos from my trip to Camp Merryelande in Piney Point, MD two weeks ago:

As a getaway spot, Camp MD is as much or as little fun as its visitors would make it. Since it’s private property, one can take a few liberties that are forbidden in the vacation cities like Ocean City, MD or Rehoboth Beach, DE. Visitors can walk around the beach with alcoholic drink in hand, or have open campfires on the beach. A few friends and I were even able to bring a cooler full of cold beer into the water and drink while bobbing up and down in the water, under the rain.

It’s a place that doesn’t carry much risk, but still reminds visitors to fun at their own little peril. It’s a small hidden gem, a hideaway well worth the visit.
