Check Off

We had a big bucket list item checked off today.  The Seniors missionaries in the mission when to Annapolis.  That is Maryland's state capitol is located.  The Maryland State House is located in Annapolis and is the oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use, dating to 1772. It houses the Maryland General Assembly and offices of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor. The capitol has the distinction of being topped by the largest wooden dome in the United States constructed without nails.

The only draw back was that it was soooo hot today.  It was the hottest day of the year.  It was 97 but with the high humidity it felt like 106.  Between last night at the Marine Parade and being out in the heat all day today I felt like we have about sweat to death.  We drank bottles of water but we were still really hot but we had a great day in spite of that.

  1. What a cool trip! So I want to make sure I understood you correctly. The prisoners made all those boat models out of bones? Were they animal bones?

  2. That seems like a cool place to visit. Crazy they made those boats from bones.

  3. Cool pictures, but yuck, your weather sounds like Florida.
