Here are some more permanent fixtures at the Baltimore Harbor. Today the tall ships are leaving Baltimore, but some interesting things in and out of the water remain there.
Knoll Lighthouse was moved to Harborplace for restoration after 133 years marking the entrance to the Baltimore harbor. It was built in 1856, and is the oldest of its kind in Maryland.
As you sail in and out of the harbor, you will see the iconic Domino Sugar sign on top of their factory. This is a recognizable landmark for everyone who lives around Baltimore.
New wing of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. It houses an Australian exhibit, I hear. Haven't gone yet.
The nose of the USS Torsk. A submarine built in 1944, and was in the Pacific during WW II. I toured this sub with my Girl Scouts years ago, which made me gain great respect for the men who stayed on this VERY SMALL AND CRAMPED vessel for months.
I came upon this monument, which I didn't even know we had in Baltimore. It is a mangled piece of the WTC in New York, dedicated to the men and women from Maryland lost on 9/11. There is also a monument made up of three limestone blocks from the Pentagon. On the marble slab above, is engraved the names of all of the people from MD lost in Washington, N.Y., and PA.
The Constellation is the last Civil War vessel afloat. It was built in 1854. It has a permanent place in the Baltimore harbor, and you can take a tour of it.
The last picture is of the Navy ships, the main building of the Aquarium, and the Domino Sugar sign.
Enjoy your day, readers!
