Inner Harbor

Kiddie A and I are going to Inner Harbor in Baltimore with mom (Tan Lucy Pez) and Aunt Bonnie today.

This shot shows:
  • The tall building to the left is Baltimore's World Trade Center,
  • The front of the red ship behind the sailing ship is the Lightship Chesapeake. To the right of that is the submarine USS Torsk,
  • The factory-looking building houses an ESPN restaurant, a bookstore (I forget if it's Borders or Barnes & Noble) and other shops,
    The pyramid-looking thing is part of the National Aquarium, which is probably the one thing we will probably go to,
  • What you can't see to the left of the tall building are two other two-story buildings with many shops and restaurants (we'll probably go to Phillips, which has good seafood) and further along the harbor is the Maryland Science Center, complete with IMAX. Camden Yards is a few blocks to the left of this photo.

Tan Lucy Pez and I'll be posting later about our day ...

Oh. Inner Harbor's a harbor. Should have thought of that.

That is a cool sailboat! It looks like a square rigged schooner, but I could be mistaken.

You HAVE TO check out that submarine! Those things are nifty. Very cramped.

Good thing you kept it to the IH. There's copious amounts of bad 'hoods here. I recently took my girlfriend - who lives just outside of DC - to the aquarium. Cool gig. We've also done the "ancient" wing of the Walters art museum. Yes, lots of shops and stuff. Some distractions, but it seems it's forsaken its soul. The history here seems overshadowed by some sort of cultural identity crisis that is only upheld by those who live outside of it who cling tencaciously to the idea of it, "Hon".

Baltimore is an odd egg. I don't have a hometown, and I've seen great places. I don't DISlike it here, but there's much better spots in the area.

Your McCaffrey-esque dragon pic drew me here. You do it?

I've only been to Baltimore once--and that was just to fly into BWI. Then I took the Amtrak to Union Station in Washington--it looks like a GREAT city though. Hope you had fun...
