Nothing to take away from the history of the day and the sadness we all feel...
But we had a great day!
First this morning: Brunch at V's friend's home. I got to have a total local/sustainable foods geek moment! It seems that his friend is also a local/sustainable food fan and, living close enough to DC, she has made the connection with Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms and meets him at his every 6 week drop off in the DC area. So this morning, I got to have eggs and sausage from Polyface farms. Of course, I was one of two guests present who actually knew the significance of that. It was, for me, a true local foods nirvana moment! The eggs were tasty and the sausage was fabulous! It has been fun this weekend to be able to talk with others who 'get it'.
Then at 1, we met my sister and her husband in Annapolis.
Here we are:
There is evidence around of the hurricane and recent flooding. Look below at all the flotsam in the water.
After lunch at the Chart House restaurant (mmmm... crabcakes!) we wandered around on Main Street.
Here is my BIL with his service dog Bryce.
It was so great to see my sister and BIL, even if only for an afternoon. Maybe we'll have to do this again sometime.
