Baltimore Inner Harbor


have been going through some of my photos from the past four years or so and quite a few are jumping out at me and waving their hands for recognition. So I thought I’d post a few of them to the blog.

This first group is from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. That’s in Maryland, for any of you who are not familiar with the east coast of the United States. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor had fallen into disrepair a few decades ago and the city decided to fix it up as part of a community restoration project. The project also included the fabulous Camden Yards Stadium, home of the Baltimore Orioles baseball team. Camden Yards is just a few blocks away from the Inner Harbor. The whole area is a wonderful place to visit now.

I loved the look of the large sailing vessels docked in the Harbor. I took this first photo to give context to the ship. It’s not often that you see a ship like this in front of an obvious cityscape.

As God has moved us around from place to place over the past few years, we have noticed that enjoyment of any locality is dependent upon your ability to notice what the place has to offer. Every location has its own unique beauty. Every location has its own history, legends, and stories. We just have to get out and find them.

  1. Jane and I visited there back in our BC days, probably sometime 1986-89. We toured the USS Constellation and USS Torsk. As I recall, the Constellation was missing one of its masts at the time. It was a neat place then, and certainly moreso now that renovations have progressed.

  2. It's fun to remember back to those days, Dean. That would have been within a couple of years of when we were in school together. It's hard to believe that we have lived about as long since those days as we had prior to them.

    Camden Yards is a wonderful ball park. Our son received tickets for the whole family to attend an Orioles game. We spent the entire day there--including a tour of the Titanic exhibit at the Children's Museum on the Harbor. It was a day chock-full of memories.
