Day 3

Baltimore -> Philly

rain 75 °F

A rainy morning with bagels from a hole-in-the-wall. It was perfect. The ride was just an hour as I suspected. We met Steevenson, his two youngest, and his newest, at the sAquarium in Baltimore. With the rain, there were only inside pictures. Funny story, though. On the drive up, Jessup asks us how long we're going to be there. We reply, "3 hours." He was so upset by that he cried. He only remembers the looong tours from yesterday. I couldn't help laugh, but responded with, "OK, how long do you want to stay?" He answered, "30 minutes." I promised him that I'd ask at 30 minutes if he were ready to go, and I would oblige with his decision. He was content, smiling again, and you can finish the story for yourselves :) The tank was enormous with lots of little sharks.Day3-1.jpg
The coral reef was engaging; Day3-2.jpg
I spotted Nemo's dad in their anenome (the boys were tickled;;Day3-3.jpg
I visited the roaming parrots,Day3-4.jpg
walked across to the dolphin show that the boys were over the top for,Day3-5.jpg
and lastly saw beautiful jellyfish (even so to me whose been stung her fair share)Day3-6.jpg
(b/w). Trey would be impressed with my use of photo blends (negative).Day3-7.jpg
Lunch was soon upon us at 1, where my children were crowned royally by Dick's waitors. Day3-8.jpg
Steevo and Chris bondedDay3-9.jpg
and we soon parted ways.

The drive to Philly was ridiculous. What should have been 1 1/2 hours turned out to be almost 3. We jumped the cool bus on my itinerary, but did manage to park right across the street from the Comcast Center right on schedule. The boys and I were mesmerized for quite a whileDay3-10.jpg
as the wall turned into video. Amazing! Just like the Arc de Triumph at the celebratory end of the Tour de France. Chris dropped some dough for street parking, and we walked to the Reading Terminal Market by way of City HallDay3-11.jpg
and we ended up at LOVEDay3-12.jpg
after a market faire to satiate. The skyline was a perfect end to the night as we rode to the old side of town (cobblestone and all) to the Sheraton, to the pool, and to the bed.Day3-13.jpg
