Annapolis Christmas Lighted Boat Parade and Hike
The Annapolis Christmas Lighted Boat Parade has proved for the last 5 years to be a pretty good time and the lights on the boats were pretty neat. Yes my guess is that we will not be doing as much paddling by this time of year so I am scheduling a hiking event. If the weather is nice we'll schedule a paddle too like we did last year. Somehow this event always manages to take me out of my Bah Humbug, Scrooge like attitude towards the holidays into something that more appropriately reflects the spirit of the season.
We will again this year be following a self guided hike/walk through Annapolis sponsored by the American Volkssport Association that starts from the parking lot at the Eastpoint Shopping Center.
We will be doing the 10 K (6 Mile) hike and leaving the parking lot at 1:30 PM which should allow for a somewhat leisurely pace and a stop for coffee and a little shopping before returning to the parking lot around 5:00 PM. If you're not up for a 6 mile walk, Annapolis isn't the kind of place where you should have too much trouble killing a couple hours before meeting us back at the Eastport Shopping Center around 5:00 PM.
After the hike we will walk from Eastport to the 6th Street Brigdge to watch the Annapolis Christmas Lighted Boat Parade. After the parade we'll get in our cars and drive to a restaurant somewhere away from downtown Annapolis where it will be much easier to get tables for a larger group. Everything about the day is optional. Skip the hike and show up for the rest or any combination of the above that you want to put together.
