I went to Annapolis last weekend to visit Wesley and it was amazing. It felt like the first time since I visited New Mexico that I was able to take a clean breath of air. And the green — it was so green, not a bunch of dead swamp trees like Nola. Not to mention the smooth roads and people who actually knew how to drive. We spent most of the time in Annapolis, but also visited D.C. and Rose Haven for a wedding. In D.C., we walked to all the major monuments and went to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and the Newseum. Here are a few pics from the trip:
Quick update on the Mississippi River water levels, I rode my back along the levee path on Thursday and the water was down at least 3-4 feet from what it was before I left for Maryland.
