Baltimore, MD

We left our beautiful anchorage on the Sassafras River, and headed to Baltimore, MD. Baltimore is another one of our favorite stops while in the Chesapeake, and our most favorite area of Baltimore is historic Fells Point. Fells Point was founded in 1730, long before Baltimore was a city. Fells Point has had a large Irish and Polish population over the years, and has few chain restaurants. Most of the restaurants, stores, and 130 pub/bars, are locally owned. If you hit every restaurant and pub/bar, it would take at least a year to hit them all. We hit a few, and they were all fun, especially the pubs. We took a three mile walking tour, and from the cobblestone streets to the beautiful old buildings, it's a great place to explore. What's not to love about Fells Point!

Crabbers, out checking their pots as we made our way to Baltimore.

As you come into Baltimore harbor, you pass this buoy that is the spot where Francis Scott Key wrote the National Anthem.

Fins for wind generators, stacked in front of a wind generator factory in Baltimore. If you look at the right side of the picture, you can see a semi parked next to the fins. This gives you and idea of how huge these things are.
