Air Force 35 Navy 34

I don't really care about the score of this game, but I bring it up because the attendance today was 37,500, and every one of those people was on the highway and in the town where I wanted to be today.  It took us approximately 30 minutes to take our exit off the highway, and even longer to get back on the highway when it was time to leave.  In spite of all that, we had a lovely day in Annapolis, MD.  We spent some time shopping, visiting a Maritime Museum, and eating crab cakes at a riverside cafe.  It rained off and on, but alas, I don't shrink in the rain.
It seemed strange being there on a cool rainy day.  The outdoor seating area of our favorite restaurant was closed.
In the foreground is where they sort through the crabs and select the ones to take up to the kitchen for steaming.  It's hard to see in the picture, but above and behind the crab shack is the outdoor patio, which was very lonely today, and the umbrellas were tied down.
There are usually boats tied up, and people partying while they wait to get in to the restaurant.  There's always a line to get in, even a line to get into the parking lot!
I'm sure you're tired of hearing about this by now, but hubby ate a crab cake!   He has made remarkable progress this week.  I think he's well enough now that future updates won't be necessary.

In quilty news, there is major progress on my Quick Christmas Bee quilt, and I hope to have pictures tomorrow.  I tried to finish it last night, but got too sleepy.  It's oh-so-close.  Maybe I better head down to the sewing room now!
Counting my blessings.....sunny
