1. Time to get outta town. Ed and I headed for the Atlantic Ocean. Our first stop was a short drive around the area of Annapolis featuring St. John's College, the state capitol, and the Naval Academy from outside the gates. We both would have enjoyed parking the car and strolling around Annapolis, but we had a long day ahead of us -- and, to be honest, the wind chill was close to brutal.
2. We crossed the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and curved south toward Cambridge and Salisbury and then stopped for a short visit at the Ocean Downs Casino. After playing for a bit, we leaped back into the car and drove to Ocean City and went to the beach and admired how beautiful it is.
3. After I stopped at a Verizon store for a in-car phone charger, we broke off from Rt. 50 and headed up 97 toward Baltimore so we could visit the Horseshoe Casino. After about an hour there, we headed to Maryland Live! as a way of closing out a day of fun driving, gawking, and getting to know Maryland a little better.
