Star-Spangled Sailabration

So this was another weekend without sewing, but it was a very fun weekend! Today I will share with you pictures from Saturday which I spent with my family in Baltimore being part of the Sailabration. For the start of the celebration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, 40 ships (tall and military) are docking at the Baltimore Harbor, the public can visit the ships, enjoy daily air shows (Blue Angels are featured!), fire works, etc.

My family and I started at the Inner Harbor and partially walked and took public transportation to get to Fells Point where we could tour military vessels.

Once in Fells Point we had lunch at Stuggy's, best hot dog I've ever had!

My husband and youngest had fun taking the above pictures with my husband's phone. Aren't they fun?

We toured the HMCS Iroquois a Canadian Navy Destroyer

While waiting on line and after the ship's tour we had a chance to see the Blue Angels performing, super impressive!

Do you remember the series Homicide:Life on the street? Then the above building should look familiar. So sad that it is boarded up.

In the late afternoon there were more people at the harbor than when we first arrived...

We had a wonderful day with beautiful weather, pleasant and helpful people from the tourists to those working the booths and  driving the buses. It is  a well organized event and congratulations should go out to all those responsible. If you still can make it do so, you won't regret it!.


  1. Looks like a really great day out. Those phone photos are just wonderful! I love the effects you used :)

  2. Great photos! I will have to take my family down to the Harbor soon. May I ask what apps or filters you used on the altered photos? Very cool effects!


I love hearing from you!
