A harbor city

Whew! After all this house work let’s go back and talk about our wonderful, relaxing trip to Baltimore. I completely enjoyed being a Librarian’s widow, hanging out at the hotel, poking around the tourists sights and checking out the art. Did I mention reading? I did that too. All while SB conferenced with the Special Librarians.


We stayed in the historic Lord Baltimore hotel, blocks from the Inner Harbor. While the Inner Harbor was more tourist trap and mall food, the ships available for touring were amazing. I’ve been on many tall ships, but never one where all decks were open for viewing, like on the USS Constellation.

While the food was nothing special at its best, the art collections kept me entertained. I especially enjoyed the Cone sister’s collection of art at the Baltimore Museum of Art. What amazing collectors they were, and how lucky to live at such a fun point in art. Let’s just say, I had some art envy.

I’ve attended conferences in the past and squeezed in some sight-seeing on the side. This new arrangement, where I get to ride-along and explore new cities as my full-time occupation was perfection. SB, I’m ready. I’m ready for more.


More! More Baltimore.


  1. Did you guys hit any seafood restaurants? Maryland is famous for its delicious, delicious crabcakes…I’m going to make sure to get some when we visit Annapolis next week. Did I mention the crabcakes are delicious?

  2. SB had the crabcakes, three times! He says they were great. The abundance of seafood in Baltimore was of no use to me, as I don’t eat any fish or crustacean. I did find a good Pakistani place towards the end of our stay. So all was not bad.
