Annapolis Views - Ego Alley on a Winter Morning

Crofton is located about 20 minutes from Annapolis, Maryland's State Capital and home to the United States Naval Academy. One of our favorite downtown destinations is Buddy's Crab House on Sunday mornings for their all-you-can eat brunch buffet, followed by a stroll to the City Dock and perhaps some window-shopping on Main Street.

The view in downtown Annapolis MD at this time of year is quite different from the hustle and bustle of warmer months.  Nowhere is that more evident than Ego Alley.

All was calm and quiet on the cold Sunday morning when I snapped this photo after brunch at Buddy's.  No movement of boats jockeying to be seen and coveted by tourists... no one visible partying on those expensive yachts... a lone seagull perched on the City Dock keeping watch over all...

As much as I love Annapolis in the spring, summer and fall seasons, there's something special about this city on a cold winter morning.


I hope you enjoy this series of Annapolis Views posted weekly on the Maryland Real Estate Blog.
