Once everyone arrived we set off for Annapolis. We entered Annapolis around 9:30 am and snagged the last remaining mooring ball. Annapolis is certainly busy USNA graduation week.
The Blue Angels were scheduled to practice 11-1 and 2-4.
The morning started off foggy so they got a late start. In between watching the planes we saw a fun new way to exercise. I imagine that the balance this requires makes for a great ab workout.
At noon, three planes started the show. We were entertained by three planes for the first hour and then two planes for the second. There was about an hour break and then the real fun began with six planes. I'm not typically all that excited about airplanes but the combination of boats, sun, and really cool flying makes for a fantastic day. The noise of the planes (after they pass) is tremendous, while the subsequent silence is almost eerie. My husband caught some fantastic photos of the smooth flying. The trip to Annapolis is worth it, even if you don't have a boat. Plenty of people brought lawn chairs and sat at the end of Dock Street to watch. I hope to go again next year. You should too.
