Our last month in Annapolis was cut short. We didn't return from St Louis until the 9th. Jennifer and her family are moving to San Diego from St Louis. We stayed an extra week to help them stage their house for the market. I guess we did a good job because it went on the market on Friday and had an accepted offer on Sunday. We helped, but the house was a beauty and decorated really well....with or without us it was going to sell quickly!
We had no trouble keeping busy as we revisited favorite Annapolis locations and explored a few new ones. We've given the Annapolis tour so many times I think we could work as guides (as long as no one checks our facts). We had one final chance to show off our knowledge when friends, Jan and Steve, flew in for a three day visit.

country. Good friends from the Porsche Club that

Gotta smile -- we're lovin the ride!
