Annapolis was a bust...

It turns out there's a boat show starting tomorrow, and they closed the docks to public today. I wasn't familiar enough with the area to feel comfortable just driving around looking for another site. So Apollo and I wandered around for 2 hours waiting for the parking meter to lapse, and took a few pictures. We found the Navy Academy - turns out it was much closer than I thought - and got kicked off. No dog allowed. Booo.

Then I headed up to St. John's College to check out the Ptolemy Stone. The rent-a-cop there tried to kick us off (no pets allowed again), but after I explained I was only going to be on campus for 10 minutes, he just shrugged and waved us on. Not paid enough to waste energy kicking people off campus, apparently.

It took much wandering around - far more than the promised 10 minutes - before I finally found the stone.

Why was it so tough? There were no label, no signs saying, "Look, here's a piece of ancient history!" On a whim, before I left to hustle back to my now-rapidly-expiring parking meter, I asked a few students if they knew what this was. Responses ranged from dimwitted: "Ummm" to the brilliant: "Some kind of steering wheel?"
Don't forget to vote or make a suggestion for a photo-related business name!

The no dog policy must be new at the naval academy. I've taken Riley there many times (he was there within the last two months) and there was only one place they weren't allowed (by the Chapel)
I'll have to check it out next time I'm there.

Could be I got unlucky and ran into a jerk guard.
