Re: 4th of July in Annapolis?
Two years ago, I was able to watch a local fireworks show in the South River, and look over my shoulder, and watch the Annapolis show at the same time.
Just being that close to Annapolis was an absolute nightmare. When the show was over, I was nearly run down by completely unlit, full-throttled power boaters, three times. The rest were merely discourteous.
I was running all of the proper navigation lights. Finally, out of fear and desperation, I sailed with my spreader lights on, to illuminate my sails and I still had power boaters ripping by, mere yards away.
Now, I restrict my fireworks observation to the Rhode River Labor Day show. I might be tempted to check out the Oxford show though. That's a beautiful town.
