Remember When . . . History Was Approachable?

I think I was awake more than I was asleep last night, so my brain power is seriously wanting right now. Usually I'd still be able to come up with something fun in the history category, but my historical thoughts are totally occupied, right now, but an upcoming trip.

I'm going to Annapolis on Friday!

I know, I know--this isn't all that unusual, and not that big a deal. Annapolis is only 2.5 hours away, we have friends still in that area . . . visiting isn't exactly abnormal. But this time I'm visiting while writing a book set there. This time, I'm going to head downtown and play tourist. I'm going to going sightseeing, visit all the historical spots I always ignored as a resident.

Yes, I'm going to be armed with a camera and a notebook, and I'm going to have a blast!

I think this is especially exciting for me because it's the first time I get to visit a place for research like this. Pathetic, huh? ;-) That's what happens when one writes about Persia, Rome, and even England and Monaco, when one has no travel budget, LOL. Okay, so I've visited the Outer Banks while writing about them, but that was more coincidence then design. This is actually planned.

So, that's my excitement. And all the thought I'm capable of before coffee. And possibly before a nap on this rainy, rainy day. Hope everyone has an excellent Wednesday!
