After lunch we walked to the top of Federal Hill to take in the magnificant view of Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
The flag has 15 stars and 15 stripes which is a replica of the 1814 flag that flew over Fort McHenry. It's called "The Star Spangled Banner Flag" because it inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star-Spangled Banner.
Just behind me is the memorial for The Pride of Baltimore which was lost at sea in 1986. The memorial is a raked mast of a Baltimore Clipper and lists the names of those lost in the tragedy.
It felt more like June than January...that's my kind of winter weather.
I simply adore the American flag and I am constantly inspired by my surroundings. I love wearing anything with ruffles. I have a special place in my heart for animals and the water. I cherish photography and sculpture. I believe in fate. Summer is my favorite time of year. I like smelling cinnamon buns. I can’t live without back-rubs, online shopping, heating blankets, pink nail polish, plaid and hydrangeas. I get excited before a storm. There should be more random acts of kindness. I love antiques and decorating. I mostly wear flats. Anything seersucker is adorable. I will never get sick of eating tomato mozzarella. The best thing about the beach is outdoor showers and eating candy. All pools should be heated. -EAS
