The city

Today was a great day. Our friend Susan made breakfast for everyone: eggs, potatoes, toast, and coffee. Mar was still sleeping and not aware of any food but Bernie enjoyed this delicious meal. Then Susan suggested a trip to the city. Mar was still sleeping and Kristin had work to do at home, so Bernie and Susan went to explore Baltimore.

It was a beautiful sunny day with a brisk wind. They went to the harbor to see the ESPN Restaurant, Barnes and Noble, the dragon paddleboats, and the aquarium. The city was architecturally interesting with very impressive buildings, even some of the doors were interesting. Then they found a place for lunch, where Bernie could have mini crab cakes to try the Maryland crab cake. It was a great experience. Then they walked by the USS Constitution and saw a submarine from the outside.

After a fun day they headed back home. Mar was now done with the laundry, and we got ready to go. After saying goodbye, we hit the road and drove about an hour and a half to Hershey PA. We found Chocolate World and parked for the night.

What a great birthday this was for the Bernie. She enjoyed it with all her heart.

I think you mean the USS Constellation. The USS Constitution is berthed in Boston, MA.
Here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Constellation_(1854)

you had me going there for a minute. the USS Constitution is in Boston harbor and is the ship from the revoluntionary war. the one in Baltimore is the USS Constellation from the war of 1812 (i think), but i think it is configured the same as the ship in BOS.
I wasn't sure if they had moved 'old ironsides' from BOS or not so looked it up.
Hope you've got a goot heater in the RV, it's gonna get cold. even a little on the chilly side here in lower AL.
