David and I went to Baltimore for the Memorial Day weekend and to celebrate my graduation and our wedding anniversary. We loved the idea of a staycation because cutting down on travel time and expense gave us the opportunity to do more of what we love. We ate yummy food all weekend including crabcakes, muscles, salmon, and Roy's melting hot chocolate souffle (thanks Marie for the recommendation!).
Baltimore is a charming city and a great day trip from DC. As opposed to the district, no one in Baltimore seemed to be in a hurry (or lost and frazzled). The weather was beautiful: just a little bit muggy with a cool sea breeze. The Baltimore Aquarium, Fells Point, and the Inner Harbor are also well worth the trip. It didn't hurt that we are also obsessed with The Wire. My photography skills need some work, so I borrowed this drool-worthy picture from nattokun on flickr. I would really like to be able to take pictures for the blog--does anyone have advice about buying a digital camera?
