Well, if we have to get stuck in an airport for 8 hours, at least it’s before a 45-minute flight to Long Island and not before our 16-hour flight to Asia. But I’m getting ahead of myself. We were only in Maryland for two days, but boy did we cram a lot in! The weather was still pleasantly spring-ish and perfectly sunny, prompting us to spend as much time outdoors as possible. On Monday, we gassed up my sister’s boat and off we headed from Kent Island (in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay) across the choppy waters into historic downtown Annapolis. What an underrated little city! Old brick buildings spread out from the waterfront, some dating back to colonial times (early 1700’s). The dome of the state capitol building and the impressive grounds of the ... read more

We got lucky with finding a mooring ball in Annapolis, (In spite of the Harbormaster's prediction for the Memorial Day weekend). We love the city. So much colonial architecture, history, festive touristy crowd, the "pain killer" cocktails in the waterfront bars and the old friends we got a chance to reconnect with! We visited the state house (the oldest one in continuous use in the country), visited William Paca (on of the four signers of the Declaration of Independence from Mariland. Well they didn't really mean to push for signing it. They were perfectly happy with the class-oriented MD but did not want to piss off the rest of the colonies and kinda reluctantly went along) house and gardens, walked the beautiful streets, the waterfronts, spent some time in our favorite bar with live music (49 ... read more

Bonjour tous le monde, Nous avons été discret dans les dernières semaines parce que nous avons été très occupé sur le catamaran. Sébastien avait beaucoup de boulot à faire comme par exemple l'entretien des boiseries intérieur et extérieur, un peu d'electricité, cirage du bateau, réparation de notre cannot en verre, l'installation de notre nouvelle antenne Wifi en haut du mat, la construction d'un plancher en bois dans notre espace de rangement et une fois de temps en temps une partie de Crible pour Sébastien.... Nous avons reçu nos amis les Victoria V, Enki et Scaramouche pendant le boat show. Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir avec eux. Demain, on part pour Solomon et c'est à partir de demain que la route vers le sud se continue. Yéééééééééé!!!! Voici 20 photos de notre séjour de 5 semaines ... read more

Connaissez-vous St Antoine de-Padoue? Nous on le connait! On pourrait même dire qu'on le connait très bien. Si ça continue comme ça, il deviendra notre meilleur ami plus vite qu'on le pense....Moi, je l'ai connu par l'intermédiaire de sebastien parce-qu'avant ça, il me semble que personne ne m'avait parlé de lui. Ma mère pourrait peut-être me corriger sur ce point, mais je suis certaine de n'avoir jamais entendu parler de lui. Imaginez vous que depuis 1 semaine, nous avons dû faire appelle à St Antoine de Padoue Seb et moi. Et que sur les 3 fois, il nous a aidé sur 2 fois et demi...Oui! Oui! 2 fois et demi....Mais à notre avis, c'est une question de jours pour vous dire qu'il nous aura aidé l'autre demi fois!!!! La première fois, c'est quand nous sommes allé ... read more

Washington DC - 2012 trip Day 4 - today was spent in Maryland visiting relatives. We met a cousin that my mom found through her geneology research. She lives near Bowie. We also went to see my other cousin in Glen Burnie who I hadn't seen since she was in her teens. We also stopped in Annapolis to take a picture of the Capital and to have crab cakes at McGarvey's. Later in the evening we had dinner at Ping Pong (light tapas/dim sum)in ChinaTown with my Nephew. It was very quick and easy to get to; we took the blue line and went two stops down to China Town.... read more

Duncan’s Family Camp Ground in Lothian, Maryland, proved to be a convenient place to camp while we explored Annapolis. March is still “pre-season” and while Duncan’s is open year round, the campground staff was hustling to get things in shape! Enough said about the campground! We drove through some beautiful farm land, and were at the Anapolis Visitor’s center (free parking in the adjacent garage) in less than 30 minutes. We met up with Squire Harvey, a Bronx transplant of a certain age, who guided us through the interesting narrow streets, chatting smartly about the history and architecture of Annapolis. We ogled the Governor’s Mansion, legislative chambers (each with a Tiffany skylight) in the stately State House, viewed a painting of George Washington resigning his commission, and saw the room where it all happened. Wending our ... read more

I have been a bit lazy about keeping up my blog this year. Sorry about that. As planned we spent hurricane season on the east coast of the US this year. The highlight of the summer for both of us was the month we spent in Washington D.C. We motorsailed up the Potomac River from the Chesapeake Bay and checked into Gangplank Marina which is located about a 20 minute walking distance from the Smithsonian Institutes, the National Mall, the Capital and so on. We both loved D.C. We just hopped off the boat anytime we felt like it and went sightseeing. If it was too far to walk we took the train or bus. The highlight of the sightseeing for me was the National Gallery of Art and in particular the Chester Dale Collection of ... read more
