A reflective moment

Stop by this memorial of Mr. Haley reading to the children. It is a great piece of art of a man who could be passing on knowledge to a new generation.

If you are in Annapolis, you'll see this without even looking for it. Different. Not something to go out of your way to see, but then again, you won't have to.

This is the place on the harbor to sit and watch the activity around you. Plenty of seats to just watch Annapolis and the harbor area go by. Kids can climb around or on the statute and the back drop is excellent for pictures.

There are lots of historical things to see as you walk around the city. Take time to stop and read. There's more to Anapolis than food and shopping.

I was a little sad that during construction the Alex Haley Memorial was somewhat off limits. I have always enjoyed the quiet statue sitting at the end of the inlet and imagining children listening to the great stories that need to be told to the next generation.

Take a few minutes to look at his as you're looking around the harbor area in Annapolis. Read what's written and you'll learn a little history.

If you are looking for a place to sit in downtown Annapolis where you can see other visitors and the boats coming and going into the harbor, this is it!

If you got to the waterfront, whether its to look at the boats on Ego Alley, or get ice cream from Storm Bros, or eat a meal at one of the many fine restaurants, take a few minutes to visit this memorial located at the terminus of the Alley. Its an important part of American history and culture
