More beach pictures

Sunset Saturday night facing town of Bethany Beach. High tide left a long puddle between the boardwalk and the ocean.

Also at sunset but facing the ocean.

Sunday afternoon in front of Addy Sea:

The walkway from the parking lot to the beach, also on Sunday afternoon:

A few days at the ocean

Sunday morning sunrise:

Not much going on in the center of Bethany Beach on Saturday afternoon:

This was the second time we've stayed at the Addy Sea Bed and Breakfast.
They're all set up for a full house which they usually get in summer, but the chairs weren't in demand this weekend.

Changes in skies, lighting, trees, and water

Not only is every day different outdoors, there are also changes during the day. Yesterday was dark and overcast on my morning walk, but a few hours later in the afternoon the day looked very different.

The pond on a rainy fall day

Another photo of the midshipmen's sailing boat

I'm putting this in for two reasons:

1. To provide a relief from too many autumn foliage shots.

2. Because I like this shot as much as the one I showed a day or two ago.

Out our back door yesterday

I've read that because of weather conditions earlier this year, this season's autumn foliage isn't as striking as usual. While I'm not sure of that, I do feel that the foliage change might be spread over a longer time period because almost two months ago I showed my first photos for the year of autumn leaves.

Naval Academy sailboat

On the boat trip this afternoon, we passed this colorful which Dan says is used by the Naval Academy to train midshipmen.

Waterfront lunch

Today my friend Dan invited me for a boat ride with a friend of his who wanted to get out on his boat one more time before putting it away for winter. That's Dan on the left in the photo below and his friend Bill on the right.

We headed out of Annapolis Harbor, into the mouth of the Severn River, north into Whitehall Bay, and slightly west to Mill Creek where Cantler's Riverside Inn sits along the bank. Bill backed his boat into an empty slip and we went into the restaurant for lunch. Here's Bill's boat at the docks of the restaurant:

The food was great. I had a cup of Maryland crab soup that might have been the best I've ever had. The soft shell crab sandwich was excellent as well.

We passed a lot of sail boats on the way back to Annapolis Harbor. The mild weather tempted many people to get out on the water one more time.

New music venue in College Park

It's called the MilkBoy ArtHouse, and it's right on route one in a building that has housed many different restaurants and, many years ago, a bowling alley.

Last night my friend Stan and I went there, had dinner, and listened to a very fine jazz vibraphonist Warren Wolf and his quartet.
