Baltimore, Maryland was one of our ports of call on our 2012 East North America Cruise. Sailing into the port under grey skies made for quite the dramatic entrance as we meandered slowly up the narrow river, passing many a vessel coming in the opposite direction having already completed their business.
For reasons unknown to even me, I get such a thrill going under a bridge whilst on a cruise ship. I know, very weird but I just think it is so exciting!
By the time we docked in Baltimore the sun was shining upon the city, making for a beautiful day to tour the neighboring areas.
Hey, it was the day before the 2012 American Elections and Obama was standing for a second term. There was NO WAY we could NOT be so close to Washington DC and not visit. We’ll explore Baltimore next time!
