Wandering in Baltimore

I, Zeb the Duck, love Baltimore.  Mom and I were here for a weekend conference so we didn’t have much time to explore.   However, this what we found.  The former headquarters of the B & O Railroad is now the Hotel Monaco Baltimore.

Historic building and great hotel

Also, the hotel hosting our conference. Love the red carpet for this white limo.

A bridal party arrived here Friday evening. The ladies were beautiful!

Ducks are very curious animals and I love to learn.  John Hopkins University was a great place for this duck.

I could learn a lot here.

Fountains and water are important to ducks also.

North Charles Street provided me with much to see.

In front of Baltimore City Circuit Courthouse I saw Clarence M. Mitchell, Jr.,

Further along the street, the New Unity Church Ministries caught my eye.

I saw a very ornate steeple.  This steeple is on the Mt. Vernon Place Methodist Church.

This church, designed by Thomas Dixon, a Baltimore architect, has been here since 1872.  We were out of time, so did not enter the church.  I hope you can.

The banners for the Baltimore Orioles are very colorful.

Second only to Colorado Rockies for this duck

I think Baltimore will be my favorite baseball team, unless they play our Colorado Rockies.

Flowers are so cheerful.  I just loved these flowers in the sidewalk of Baltimore.

You will love visiting Baltimore.  There is something interesting everywhere.  Next time I will tell you about Saturday’s short walk.  We took an outside break for dinner, before Saturday’s last session.
