November 2014: Baltimore Inner Harbour

A few images of the harbour area (or harbor, as the locals spell it!), taken one sunny afternoon in late November. The first picture shows several of the tourist attractions, including the National Aquarium (the glass buildings in the middle and on the right) and two historic ships - the Chesapeake Lightship and the submarine USS Torsk on the right:

The harbour is usually busy and the "Spirit of Baltimore" is shown docked after a recent pleasure trip, with Baltimore's World Trade Centre in the background:

Walk just a few blocks away from the harbour and you are in quaint residential streets:

Finally one of the most impressive mosaics I have ever seen, adorning the American Visionary Art Museum:

Whilst not an obvious tourist attraction, there is plenty to do in Baltimore. There are several historic forts, great seafood dining (crabcakes are the local speciality!) and plenty of museums and other indoor attractions. Well worth a visit!
