A day in Baltimore

Things I’ve seen today running around in Baltimore with our oldest:

•The Black and Decker world headquarters (this would have been very exciting for The Husband and The Boy)
•Pimlico race course
•The building from which the Hubble telescope is controlled
•Carnegie Institute

After a morning of shopping and walking around in Towson to find an interesting place to eat (we ended up with Vietnamese), we spent the afternoon at the street fair right in Oldest’s neighborhood. Picked up some excellent, one-of-a-kind souvenirs and Christmas gifts. And got to see this:

Found outside "Cafe Hon," where we ate Friday night. I thought Oldest was saying "Cafe Hun." Either way, I had a great burger there.

and this:

An annual event at this festival: toilet racing. The rules seem to be limited to having one or more toilets (or urinals) mounted on a human-powered cart.

It’s only 4:30 and we’re already done with the scheduled events for the day. Tonight it’s just card games, leftover chicken noodle soup from last night’s dinner, and the final episode of Ken Burns’ “The Roosevelts.” My kind of vacation.

And tomorrow, Ocean City!

  1. I love Cafe Hon! It looks like you’re having good weather. Take advantage of it and take a walk around the neighborhood one evening. I loved that about my daughter’s last neighborhood before she moved back west (she lived in four different places). Every house was different. It was all so laid back. I loved it!
