Here and There

First, a little housekeeping. I finished my Northman Mittens on Friday night, so I’m meadal-worthy. Yay! I also finished my Alexis vest. Posts on both of those projects will be coming along before long.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Hubster and I are not at the “ranch!” We left on Sunday morning bright and early and drove to Annapolis, Md., where a good friend gave the Hubster and I a tour of the Yard at the United States Naval Academy.

Loretta took us to Bancroft Hall, where RT just about tired himself out walking all over Memorial Hall.

We checked out the cool cannons just outside of Bancroft

Tigger got up close and personal with Tecumseh

We then wandered over to the Academy chapel

And then down to the crypt of John Paul Jones. No pictures from the interior of the chapel or JPJ’s crypt.

After the tour, we found a friendly bar-with-food in Annapolis and the three of us enjoyed the Gold Medal hockey game. The Hubster and I then headed south of the District to spend the night in Alexandria to make Monday’s plan a little easier to execute. We’ll be back with that story tomorrow!

What happened to Tecumseh's arms? Did I fall asleep that day in history class??

Looks like a fun trip!

I was wondering about the arms, too. Must be hard to shoot arrows that way.

The mittens are a work of art and tood for you for finishing them on time!

Congrats on finishing the mittens. When do we get to see pictures?
