9/10 3:45 Dock. Annaapolis, MD. Time to leave.
When it was time to leave, I couldn’t work the buckle on the strap that wraps around the wheel. It was stuck, stuck, stuck. And there was an audience waiting for the parking space. (Very patiently, I might add). After a few minutes, it was clear to me that I wasn’t going to be able to figure it out anytime soon, so I went up to the driver’s window and asked him to help me tie up the bell. Three men got out of the van and came to see what was going on. After they finally got the strap to work, we looked up and the van was gone. Fortunately, in the meantime, the people they had left behind in the van had driven off and found another parking space.
