Arriving in Annapolis
The Navy is watching us yet again....we just can't seem to shake them
This is the first time since Maine that we are spending more than a few days somewhere. It has been really nice to relax and get to know the place, even though it feels like we just got here yesterday. Spa Creek is a stone's throw from the downtown Annapolis waterfront. Every street that dead ends at the water, in this neighborhood, has a public dinghy dock. How cool is that? It's surrounded by beautiful homes with perfectly manicured lawns, shrubs and trees. The green leaves on the trees changing to vibrant red and orange is evidence that fall is on its way. The days are warm and the nights are cool.

They look way to happy to be leaving without any parents! Maggie driving Kate, Olivia, Justine and Colin (Full Monty) to the park.
The kids accompanied Jenny and I to the laundromat. Here they are entertaining themselves by playing soccer with a water bottle cap.

One of our fellow Manta owners put together a dinner for all Manta owners that were going to be in Annapolis for the boat show. Four of us sailed our boats here, the remainder flew in and left their boats at home. We have an amazing group of owners that share information through an exclusive e-mail forum. We are indebted to them for their expertise and willingness to help!
