Baltimore, Maryland - 2014

In July of 2014, I spent a week in Maryland (in the Baltimore area) on a business trip. I didn't have much time to enjoy the sites, but I did manage to eat some Blue Crab (appx $8.00 / crab!) and visit Baltimore's Inner Harbor (too bad it rained that evening).

Once again I was reminded why I don’t want to move to (live in) that area. Too busy, too many people, bad traffic, and not enough parking. Our trip to the Inner Harbor was quite expensive. ~$10.00 to park in a garage, ~$50.00 for an appetizer, sandwich and drink at the Hard Rock Cafe, ~$25.00 for an umbrella at the Barnes & Noble next door. FYI: Kim and I lived in Odenton, Maryland from 1992-1995.

The good parts? A drive up to Liberty Lake in the middle of Maryland. Beautiful forests and some actual solitude in the midst of all that hubbub. Previously mentioned Blue Crabs, and a short visit to a small museum. Here’s a few photos of the Inner Harbor on that gloomy day (15 July, 2014). We (myself and a coworker) stayed in the area from 14-18 July, 2014.
