10th Anniversary - Part 3

On Thursday, the day before our anniversary, we learned that our condo complex STILL hadn't gotten our A/C fixed and we were looking at temperatures in the 80's for the weekend. We joked Thursday night about getting a hotel for the weekend then we looked at each other and thought why not? After some searching online, we snagged a great deal for the Westin Hotel in Annapolis and as a bonus, it was pet friendly so Sophie could go too!

Amazingly, after living just outside Washington, DC for nearly 11 years now, we've never been to Annapolis. It's only a 45 minute drive which makes it a great place to run off to when you want to get out of town as the last minute.

The hotel was very nice and located just at the outer edge of the old part of town. A free shuttle bus from the hotel was available to take you down to the harbor or just about anywhere else nearby. We have a room at the end of the hall which included the Westin pet bed, food and water bowls and doggie placemat for Sophie. She wasn't keen on the bed at first but after walking her little butt off the first day, that changed. She liked our bed too.

The old part of town was easy to walk around and very pet friendly. Sophie was allowed in just about every shop. There was a harbor tour that let us bring her aboard and if we wanted to, we could have taken a horse-drawn carriage tour with her as well.

Any restaurant with outdoor seating welcomed pets, including one place we went to in one of the many marinas that gave pets a little plate of bacon when you came in for breakfast.

The best part of the entire weekend was just being able to relax and enjoy spending time together (all 3 of us).

We used to live near Annapolis and my daughter was born there. Main Street is beautiful! I used to spend a lot of time over there. Sounds like you had a nice trip!

My husband grew up in Annapolis and he has such fond memories! He keeps wanting to visit,so maybe we should go see his old stomping ground!
