Sunday Ride

It has been entirely too long between rides. Between work and weather it has been almost 2 weeks since I last got out. Luckily I had great weather for a ride this afternoon after too much work stuff, so I went for a buzz around the city.

Riding through the Otterbein neighborhood I spotted this little park, and what appears to be a giant wagon wheel in it.
It was interesting in that it was right in the middle of the street, the road ended and there was the park, but there are still houses facing what would be the street.
Then it was off around the stadium, I think there was an O's game this afternoon, and a couple of the bars across the street had taken over the road for a beer garden.
After that I rode into the westside to the B & O Railroad Museum, and took the opportunity to get a beauty shot of the bike with a few older locomotives that are sitting outside.
Here are two rows of older passenger cars there.
The cars on the left side of the previous picture had this logo on them, mostly they are progressing towards rust right now.
Leaving there I saw this mural across the street.
Then it was back down through the Inner Harbor, which was chock-a-block (where does that come from anyhow) full of tourists. I went through Harbor East heading back towards Fells Point, this statue is in the middle of the traffic circle at the center of the Harbor East development.
Then through Fells Point to the Harbor Promenade, which runs right along the water all the way around the Inner Harbor. There are a ton of marinas along here.
Here is the bike on one of the floating sections of the promenade with a couple of freighters in the background on the other side of the harbor. Although the Inner Harbor is a major tourist attraction here, it is still an active port when you get a little further out.
Then it was back to the house to clean up and watch Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
