This will be my last post on our trip to Maryland. Sure, sure...I know that "vacation slides" can be pretty boring. But our visit to the newly renovated Museum at the Naval Academy in Annopolis was just too cool not to include a few photos from there. The exhibits cover a wide range of Naval history, but I was captured by the displays of sailing ships the most. Since I'm into making models of strange things, I was amazed at the craftsmanship and beauty of the replicas. The pistol cutlass below was the "real deal" though. Arrgg, matey!!
