The Black Eyed Susan

Yesterday, thanks to a birthday gift from my kids, Mike and I enjoyed a luncheon cruise of Baltimore's harbour.

We were lucky enough to be seated with a couple who know the harbour and who were willing to be our tour guides.

We saw Ft. McHenry

of Star Spangled Banner fame; Federal Hill where Union troops kept track of the harbour and the southern sympathisers during the Civil War; a huge Domino Sugar plant dating from the days when the harbour's water was still clean; a submarine and ships open to public tours; beautiful condos and restaurants overlooking the water; the city's aquarium; and so much more. It would take a lot longer than an afternoon to do the area justice.

We will have to return someday.

PS: the paddle boat we were on was The Black Eyed Susan
