The weather last weekend was warm and sunny so Nick and I decided to take a break from the house projects.
Saturday morning we left for a day trip to Annapolis, a charming historic waterfront community less than an hour from D.C. The city is filled with old houses and cute shops and it’s one of my favorite places to visit.
We walked through the shops for a few hours and then sat down by the pier to enjoy a coconut chocolate swirl caramel apple while we relaxed in the sun and watched the sail boats in the harbor.
It was definitely an enjoyable trip, and it was made even better when I found a few dollars on the ground on the way back to our car!
On the way home we stopped for a late lunch at Viet-Thai Paradise, a few miles outside the downtown area, and enjoyed their spring rolls, pho and curry chicken. The food was good, but probably not good enough to warrant a return trip.
On Sunday we woke up early and went for a 10-mile bicycle ride on our local hike-bike trail before it got too hot outside. Thankfully the majority of the trail is through a wooded area so there was plenty of shade.
Later that afternoon we went to the Takoma Park Jazz Festival; we walked through the craft vendors, enjoyed the jazz music and sampled some street fare.
Overall it was a great weekend, and I’m so glad we got to spend it having fun and not working on house projects!
