Our last day in Baltimore proved to be another nice day. We visited Fort McHenry with its long history from a earthwork fortification to protect Baltimore during the American Revolution to a military prison to a hospital. It is also best known as where Francis Scott Key wrote the "Star Spangles Banner".

From there we visited the Visionary Museum - and unusual, interesting museum which seems to be changing and growing every time I visit it.

Returning to our boat we discovered a new neighbor - a beautiful 2 master named "When and If" that George Patton had commissioned to be built. Unfortunately he did not live long enough to enjoy it.

We left Baltimore the next morning as the clouds began to move it and the last bit of rising sun made nice reflections of the boats in the marina. We had a long ride home before bad weather set in again.
