A day on by the harbor is always a good time. I don’t think I can remember a day I haven’t enjoyed just being near the water. It’s not the beach, but it’s a welcome change from the crushing weight of the city and roads. The water lapping against the hulls and wharf it makes for a calming soundtrack while putting a little charcoal to some paper.
It took some getting to since we didn’t want to spend the money to get down to the area from campus, but once there, it was actually a really nice spot. Lots of little shops and food. There was a festival being set up, but I can’t remember just what it was for. It seems like there is a new festival every week in Baltimore.
In the end I think this cabbie had the right idea. Relax and let the world come to you once in a while.
