Weekend Reflections

My entry for Weekend Reflections  and  Scenic Sunday is from my family last trip to the harbor and aqarium. It is of the USS Constellation, the last all sail ship built by the US Navy. The USS Constellation was built in 1854, it was restored and returned to Baltimore in July 2, 1999. You can read more at Baltimore Constellation





To see more wonderful and creative Weekend Reflections go and visit James at Newtown

and to see beautiful Scenic photos make sure you vis tthe Holley at Scenic Sunday

Thanks for stopping by my reflections and  blog.
Thanks to James for hosting Weekend Reflections and the Holleys for hosting Scenic Sunday.

  8. Lovely! It's hard to pick a favourite, but maybe the last one, with the light shining on that one distant building and the water so calm.

    Boy do these bring back memories -- when my husband had his Green Card, we lived and worked in Baltimore. I used to eat lunch in a staff room overlooking the harbour.


    I hope you have a good weekend and the snowstorm doesn't do too much damage!

  20. Your pictures are wonderful and I love the multiple reflections.
    I thought this ship looked familiar. I stopped and took a few pictures of it on my drive from Texas to Newtown Pa. I keep saying I want to go back to Baltimore but 2 and half hours each way is a long drive.

  52. Beautiful reflection, Eileen and thanks for a little history. It was sunny and looked nice in Orlando but I did not go out, was just there for a stopover. It's nice and sunny at 61 degrees in Fort Myers where I am now...Christine

  53. Oh my goodness, Eileen. It is amazing how a picture can take you back to so many wonderful memories. When we live in York Pa, we would take the children and go to Inner Harbor, at least once a month. It was our favorite place to go even with my family over Easter holiday, we would go to the Aquarium. I just love the rainforest area in there.
    Thanks for visiting and leaving your sweet comment.

    Come back again soon.

  55. That is a wonderful ship Ellen. Poor Baltimore is under so much snow today along with the rest of Maryland! We got over a foot of snow today. Hope you stay safe and warm with all this wintery mix of weather!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love the under the pier shot! And the wet sand does a nice reflection. As for my car, 3 feet of snow and no driving for a week left it clean.
