A Visit to Annapolis, MD

Annapolis, MD Townhome dressed for Christmas with wreaths on windows and window boxes full of ornaments

Hey there,

As I told you over on Instagram last Friday, we were in Annapolis, MD, giving company to our daughter Sam who had a business meeting there.

This was Sam's first time visiting Annapolis, our county's capital, and she didn't want to deal with parking. That's why her dad, Mr. RLC, and I joined in the excursion. The mister was the chauffeur and I was simply giving him some company while we waited for her. 

However, as soon as we arrived, my complete attention turned toward the pretty houses and buildings we saw on our way. Oh, I was delighted to be in such a beautiful town!

How are you going to skip taking a picture... or ten, of a house dressed in its best Christmas attire.

She was telling me, "don't I look gorgeous?!" 

By the seventh shot, Mr. RLC was about half a mile away, looking for the closest place to sit down and get a coffee or something hot because it was freezing out there.

This house wasn't decorated for Christmas but I couldn't ignore all those pretty details.

The old postmaster building. Love the wreath on the door and the written house number.

Christmas decor - front porch and steps

We got to Church Circle and it was like wow, beautiful buildings all around...

Christmas decor - Front door with a wreath on it.

Starting with this, the Maryland Inn, an 18th-century building turned hotel. - And no, that's not the hubs.

Walking around, we saw the Reynolds Tavern and headed toward it.

But, I went a little bit further to take a pic of this, the Farmers Bank of MD...

Then, I went back and got inside Reynolds Tavern, an elegant, Georgian-style Inn.

A charming spot by the window with balloon shade and old clock.

We were seated here, by the window, or maybe that's the spot that Mr. RLC chose.

This was the mister's view, St. Anne's Parish.

And he also got this shot of the tourist bus.

Christmas time - girl entering Reynolds Tavern

We were enjoying our time there, when the miss arrived, and hey, way sooner than we thought.

Christmas decor - mantel

We had to move to another table, more exactly... in front of Mr. Washington.

Reynolds tavern - parlor

And from there, away from the window, I got a better view of the entire "parlor". Here you can read about the history of the interior of the Reynold's Tavern.

We had English tea, and my daughter couldn't stop admiring this little teaspoon.

Well, overall, we had a wonderful time in Annapolis, and her meeting was great. She's going to be an intern working for the Maryland General Assembly this legislative session. Talk about a proud mama! :)

  1. Our state's capital is so beautiful! We stayed at a bed and breakfast there for our 10 year and would spend hours just walking the streets.

  2. How absolutely beautiful! I just love the history of it all. Seasons blessings to you and yours.

  3. Oh my goodness! I love the flower boxes overflowing with ornaments. We have flower boxes on our front porch that would look awesome decorated like this. Adding plastic ornaments to my after Christmas shopping list!

  4. What a lovely place to visit during this time of year. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas
