A Lunch Cruise in Baltimore

We celebrated Michael's birthday a second time when we took a lunch cruise beginning at the Inner Harbor of Baltimore.  This was Michael's birthday present from our children and it was a fun way to spend an afternoon.  There was dining, dancing, entertainment and some incredible views!  The weather was cool and crisp and the sky was blue with abundant sunshine.  A perfect fall day.

When you look at the first photo, you can see a bride and groom on the top deck!  They had the ceremony before we left and the reception during the cruise!

Baltimore is home to the hospital ship Comfort.  It goes anywhere in the world where it's needed.

If you're ever in the area, this is a fun way to spend an afternoon.  Even if you don't take the cruise, the Inner Harbor and downtown have enough to keep you busy for days!

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!!!

  5. What a lovely way to spend a day!

  6. Those are awesome photos. Glad you got to continue celebrating B.Days. I am a big believer in celebrating B.Days A LOT!!!!!

    That floating Hospital is HUGE. I am always amazed that something that big can actually float, even if displacement and forward motion are explained to me (He! He!)

    My son really wanted to go to Towson for college and on his college trip to the East coast he stopped in Baltimore but unfortunately I didn't get to go on that trip :(

    Maybe when I get around to doing my cross country road trip :)

    Have a lovely day, T. :)

  7. Wow, how wonderful and beautiful.

  9. Oh how nice Lucky you!!! My brother in law got married on a ship like that and we got to cruise Long Island Sound - It was beautiful!
