The show will happen, but the public will not be allowed on the Academy. Anyone have any good spots to watch from for this?

There was a spot by the Rte 450 Bridge but it will get crowded and the view is obstructed to the right. Somewhere in Downtown Annapolis is about as good as we're going to get.

I did some exploring this past weekend looking for a good vantage point off Academy Grounds. I found a small spot on the water north of the Route 450 Bridge. See map and photos. There is a canoe launch path through the woodline. Then, go around a tree to the right to this spot. Everything to the left is open. I think we would be ok to park in that lot but it will fill up quickly. Plan an early arrival, bring a chair, cooler and bug spray.

Apparently there was a bird strike. Minor damages sustained but have been repaired.
