As promised, I’ve been able to steal some internet time (while sitting on the floor in my now-empty apartment) to transfer the photos from our trip from my phone and camera over to my computer!
On Day 1 of our Reunion Road Trip, P and I hit the road from Charlottesville and headed north to the Baltimore Aquarium! We arrived a little before 2pm and stayed until they closed around 5:30. We saw plenty of fish, turtles, stingrays, and sharks, and we also saw a dolphin demonstration and the temporary jellyfish exhibit! I’ll let my less-than-stellar photos do the talking. (Here’s where I should mention that “buy a nice camera” has been on my blogging to-do list for a few months now.) It’s hard to take pictures of animals inside tanks with just a crappy camera and a phone!
Once we had seen all we could see before the aquarium closed, we headed back to our car in the garage. But on the way, we passed this:
Unfortunately, P put his foot down, because his aunt and uncle were expecting us for dinner. So we hit the road for Towson and night #1 of our journey. We hung out with his aunt and uncle all night, and they served us a delicious meal of grilled barbecued chicken, scalloped potatoes, Caesar salad, and Dove bars for dessert.
OH!, and this was their back-door neighbors’ house:
Possibly the biggest house I’ve ever seen in person.
So that was day 1 of our vacation! I hope to be back tomorrow with day 2.
Has anyone else visited the Baltimore Aquarium? What else did we miss in Baltimore? If we had planned for more time, I would have loved to explore more. Maybe another time!
