Boatyard & Back Porch

After a couple hours of shopping with JCW we stopped by the boatyard to take a walk around and enjoy the lovely weather.

We did plenty of fantasizing about where we would like to travel by sailboat.

It's always so much fun to to look at the names of boats and their color combinations.

At that point we were very hungry and decided to have lunch at the Back Porch Café at Ken's Creative Kitchen.

I had the California Seafood Salad...any salad with half an avocado is alright by me!

JCW started with the Cream of Crab and then had the Grilled Apple, Cheddar, Fontina and Bacon Sandwich.

The Back Porch Café is located directly on the water at  Annapolis Landing Marina. It's where the locals eat and you really can't beat the view on a beautiful September day.

I couldn't have been happier to spend time with JCW and be by the water. Fall, I am not looking forward to you.

Boat names are my favorite! I definitely need to start brainstorming now for what I'll name my future boat!
