I have a lot more photos I’ll be loading in Flickr.  (top of my blog page is the link for flickr)

I like when tall ships and naval vessels visit Baltimore.  It makes our little piece of the world sparkle, creates memories for all and gives everyone a chance to meet people from all over the world.  Here’s a bit of my tiny piece.  This celebration is to commemorate the War of 1812.  Baltimore was the prize but the British didn’t get it and we got a song.  The National Anthem.

Here’s a list of the visiting ships.  I did not get to make it to all of the ships but loved everything that I did get to see and the people I met.  We had great fun aboard the Guayas and learned “dancing” is a universal language.  So is smiling!   🙂

Ciao for now and a hug  to Germany for this:

As it left Baltimore, the German frigate Hessen raised its nation’s flag. Tucked behind the bridge, the warship flew an extra set of colors: an orange-and-black Orioles banner. 

That’s our baseball team!
