What we did:


On Wednesday the 23rd we took a tour of the Annapolis harbor aboard the tour boat Harbor Queen.  We had great views of the harbor, the many, many saliboats and of course the US Naval Academy.

After the boat ride we walked about the harbor district and many stopped for dinner at one of the very many fine restaurants.

Transportation about town was always available outside of the hotel.  A jitney ran every 20 minuetes to and from the Main Street shopping district.

On Thursday the 24th we boarded a bus to the Maryland State house and the US Naval Academy for a walking tour.  We had lunch at the Academy and returned on time for the Business Meeting.

It was at this meeting the the slate of officers for the coming years were elected and the site of the 2019 Reunion was discussed.

In the evening we had a fine meal at our Banquet.  The guest speaker was William M. McBride, Ph.D.  He is a professor at the Naval Academy and gave us an interesting and detailed lecture about our ship's namesake: Admiral Bradley Allen Fiske.
