O Say Can You See Baltimore

We took the Nortons to Ft. McHenry yesterday. Did I mention it was a cool day? Where is spring??!!! However, the sturdy breeze made it the perfect day to take a picture of the Star Spangled Banner at the place of the song's birth.

The inner harbor was hopping with people, but despite the blue skies and sunshine, the buskers seemed to still be in hibernation!

We warmed up with some very tasty Italian food at Amici's in Little Italy. This fortified us somewhat for our evening outside in the elements.

Ed had got us 4 tickets to the Oriole's game at Camden Yards. It was a beautiful but cold evening, and with a blanket and a few layers we stayed just barely warm enough to make it through nine innings. We were a little sad that the O's lost (6-5).  However, we were grateful that the Minnesota Twins' run in the ninth inning saved us from going into extra innings! We just wanted to get warm!
