"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Sept. 24 - Baltimore, MD


Henderson's Wharf Marina

Sorry there was no blog yesterday. As you've probably noticed I usually post blog entries the following morning...if something doesn't get in the way. This morning Pam and I decided to take the bus to Townson Center and spend the day at the mall. The guys had planned to go to the Baltimore/Toronto baseball game at Camden Yards. When you live on a boat every day activities like shopping takes planning...no car to just jump into, so your schedule is determined by buses or how long it takes to ride your bike there. So we had to leave this morning before I had time to blog. The trip to the mall was over an hour on the bus...trying to figure out the bus system took us longer to get back. Our timing was perfect though, we notice the guys in the Dog Watch Tavern as we were walking back to the boats from the bus stop, and we stopped in for a little dinner.

Yesterday Stan and I went back to the farmers market under the Jones Falls Expressway. We had planned to have lunch at one of the food venders, but it was just too crowded. We decided it would be more relaxing if we came back to the boat and grilled hamburgers...you just can't beat the view and much more peaceful. Pam found out that on Sundays the observation pagoda in Pattern Park is open (I posted a picture of the pagoda on September 13). It sits on one of the highest points in the area, so the view from the top is wonderful. Pam and I rode up hill and then climbed the stairs, but were rewarded with great views of the city and harbor.
