For Memorial Day weekend, I took a trip with the parental unit to Maryland to spend time with family. The person whom I was visiting suggested that I check out Annapolis and see the waterfront while I was in town.
Annapolis is the capital city of Maryland and is also known as the Sailing Capital of the U.S.
Since it was a holiday, we waited a few days before visiting to avoid potential crowds. We eventually went on the Tuesday following. At first, there was no set plan and I was not sure where in Annapolis we should even go. I just typed in Annapolis into my GPS and clicked on the quickest location that happened to be a little under a thirty minute drive.
The directions took us to the ‘ Towne Centre’.
It wasn’t too hard finding parking so we parked and explored the area on foot.
It was interesting walking around freely in public for the first time since the pandemic. I had almost forgotten what it was like to just casually walk around and mingle with strangers. Although it wasn’t mandatory at the time, I still kept my mask on and saw a few others doing the same.
After about an hour of walking around, we began to feel ‘peckish’ . I looked at my maps to see what restaurants were located by the harbor since we decided on eating somewhere near the waterfront. Because of my West Indian background, Pusser’s Caribbean Grille immediatly caught my eye. “Oooo, I want some Caribbean food”, I thought. We looked through the menu and took a vote and all were in favor. It was about a 12 minute drive from the Town Center so I called ahead of time to see if we had to make a reservation. The hostess let me know that they didn’t take same day reservations but that there were tables available.
On that note, we made our way back to the parking lot, hopped in the car and began our journey to the restaurant.
Of course I adore the color pink and had to take a picture of anything with even just a hint of it along the way.
Before you know it, we were pulling up to Pusser’s Caribbean Grille.
