its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

May 18 – Baltimore, MD

Inter Harbor
Henderson’s Wharf Marina

We spent the morning getting things ready for our trip home.We decided this afternoon we would walk to the Inter Harbor and spend a littletime watching people and seeing the sights one more time. We will be sitting inthe car the next few days and figured we needed the exercise. I have an app onmy phone I use to track how far we walk or bike…we did over 6 miles thisafternoon. On our way back to the boat we stopped at the Dead End Saloon for abeer and dinner…I think we earned it! We had fun visiting with other people inthe bar and the food was pretty good. Henderson’s Marina is in the prefectlocation…close to the Inter Harbor, Little Italy and Fell’s Point; all full ofgreat places to explore and wonderful restaurants to try.
