Trip to Annapolis, Maryland

17 Jul

Bushranger has made it to Annapolis Maryland. It was an interesting voyage…

…there were wild-looking clouds that had little ‘funnel-looking’ strings protruding from the bottom…

We originally thought, “oh oh!” — then we heard the Coast Guard sound a warning for water spouts (the watery cousin to the dreaded tornado) in the vicinity of Annapolis, and we THEN thought, “OH OH!” …but it turned out to be nothing, as the little funnels sucked themselves back into the mother cloud. I think the weather gods were just testing our resolve.

I’m going to end this post with a few photos of the cool light houses we’ve seen along the way – some ‘shiny as new pennies’ and some sad and dejected, but all very cool!light house 1light house 3light house 2

    My favorite Chesapeake Bay lighthouse location name is “Point No Point”.

    Incredible photos. That is a scary looking cloud formation! Glad the funnel cloud dissipated. Enjoy Annapolis!

    Cool lighthouses. I love the designations, too, such as spark plug lighthouses (the first two) an screw pile lighthouses like the third one (and the one at St. Michaels).
