Rick Speaks:
We had a perfectly delightful day here in Annapolis. We started the day with a visit and tour of the United States Naval Academy. The docent was excellent and the tour was “Top Drawer”. The only negative was that the crypt of Johns Paul Jones was closed today for some repairs to the room and we did not get to see the crypt (or John Paul Jones). The chapel was very nice with Tiffany designed glass in the stained windows. Three pictures are attached so you can see the beautiful windows. We then went to the Naval Museum second floor to see the world class display of model ships, dating from the 1600’s. The Academy claims the world’s best and most extensive display of wooden model ships. There is no value on the collection, as it is irreplaceable.

Later in the day, we took a 40 minute narrated tour of Spa Creek and the surrounding old Annapolis in a tour boat. All in all, another good day.
