You know how things are just outside your door, yet you need a reason to visit? Our virtual friends, Ms. M and Mr. B (over at Two Pitties in the City) did a really cool series last spring about being a tourist in your own city. Well it just so happens that my mom was visiting from NY this weekend. All the more reason to go out and be a ‘tourist’, right?
In a quick break in the rain, we went down to visit Fort McHenry. I often run there, but rarely take it all in for what it is; a National Historical Monument.
Anyway, this landmark, right in the city, is a beautiful place to visit! It’s a dog friendly mile loop of paved pathway surrounding the Fort to the inside, and beautiful view of the water. It’s only about a square mile, but its a wonderful escape for me when I feel a little suffocated in the city. There’s something about green grass and the water that just feels good, no?
Bodie was very interested in the cannons…after all this is (was) a fort!
If you’re ever in Baltimore for a visit (with or without your pooch), Bodie recommends you make a stop at Fort McHenry. He can’t wait for a picnic when the ground isn’t wet.
