Farewell to Summer

Last Saturday, Heather and I took a day trip to Inner Harbor in Baltimore, MD. It'd probably been close to ten years since I'd been there and she'd never been at all, so we had fun exploring (once again, we confirmed that I'm directionally challenged, so I've officially ceded navigational privileges to Heather). We beat the crowds to the National Aquarium, walked up to Lexington Market for crab cakes at Faidley's, nearly interrupted an ongoing wedding ceremony (c'mon, people, ever heard of ushers?!) at the Baltimore Basilica, and poked around the shops surrounding the harbor. But mostly we just hung out — talking, people-watching, and enjoying the beautiful weather. It really was beautiful — warm and sunny with a light, cool breeze. It was the kind of day that gives me intense cravings for ice cream, apparently — I couldn't stop thinking about it all day ... but we never got any. Oh well. We did stop at Rita's and Starbucks, so I can't complain. All in all, it was the perfect end to a great summer.
