Trip to Baltimore with a side trip to Pennsylvania

A couple of weeks ago I had an opportunity to spend a few days in Baltimore with my daughter who was attending a convention. Things have been so busy lately, that it was a welcome getaway.

Our hotel was located across the street from the Inner Harbor. One afternoon we sat overlooking the harbor with Starbuck's coffee and just relaxed and people watched.

This is another view of the harbor.
And another.

One day we drove into Pennsylvania to a town called Intercourse. The countryside was very peaceful and beautiful, with large farms like this one pictures. Many of them are owned and operated by Amish people. We saw some of them in the buggys and at the places we stopped. The Amish culture is very interesting. They seem to be very hard worker's and very diligent about their culture.

Here are a few pictures of some of the trees with the bright colors. These color changes are not something we see here in the deep South. The colors are so vivid and bright.

Other random pictures.

You were only 45 minutes from me when you were in PA!!

Oh, how I wish I would have known you were coming so we could have met!!!!! You could have met my precious models!!!

I love Inner Harbor - I could spend all day just walking around looking at all the boats!!

How fun! While visiting a friend of mine in Ohio, her parents took me to "Amish country". I loved it! When I read Intercourse, PA I kept thinking I've read that name before in an Amish book (Beverly Lewis).

Welcome home!
