its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

May 24 – Annapolis, MD

City Mooring Field

“I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.” –Arthur Rubinstein

Commissioning Week in Annapolis is a week long celebration of the graduation and commissioning of new Naval officers. The week is filled with all kinds of activities, some for the public and many more for the graduates and their families. The one that seems to really draw a crowd is the performances by the Blue Angels. Today was just the practice session and it definitely drew a large crowd…on shore and on the water. It was a prefect day to enjoy watching the boats and the planes. The entertainment started early as boats arrived to get a good spot for the show and the parade of boats lasted until dark.
