A good trip can be defined in many ways. The easy way is that you set out to accomplish something, and you do accomplish it. That wasn’t our Sunday, or at least that is not how it ended. But there is a more important thing to consider sometimes, hanging out with family. My mother and sister were in town that made any trip Saturday and Sunday extra special. We wandered to our upcoming Wadding Caterer on Saturday evening. If you are ever in Buckeystown MD, stop at DJ’s. The food is beyond words. But DJ is a wonderful human being. He will be providing the food our my daughter and future son-in-law’s wadding. He, my daughter’s finance, hadn’t actually been to DJ’s so it was doubly fun.
Sunday we were going to go out on the boat, but we had a small issue. Instead, we had lunch at my wife’s favorite Annapolis place (the picture of the alligator with a number on him comes from grumps). My mother and sister decided that lunch as a pick on Doc time. I guess, after all these years, it was probably deserved. My wife enjoyed that portion of the meal. From Gramps it was an ill-fated short drive to the boat. We were unable to get power to the port side of the boat. You can’t start the engines without power. I tinkered with it for a bit, but I couldn’t see anything I knew to be wrong. So we packed up and drove into Annapolis proper. We wandered through the downtown area of Annapolis.
It is a small city, but there are a lot of people there every weekend day. I did manage to capture a few flower pictures at the Marina, and then we headed back to Germantown. Traffic wasn’t horrible, but I did miss the Ikea turn. I must have something against Ikea. I keep missing that turn. I think we have now gone by the Ikea store 100 times and we’ve only managed not to miss that turn one time. I wonder if there might be more to that story than just a missed turn? When we got home, it was just about time to make dinner (after the Labrador walk). We had Teriyaki Steak, Scallops, Asparagus and Corn-on-the-cob. The first three were magnificent. Maryland doesn’t have good corn on the cob. So the corn was just ok. Great day spent with two wonderful human beings.
