This weekend is the 200th anniversary celebration of the War of 1812 in Baltimore, as you may or may not know, the Star Spangled Banner was written during the shelling of Fort McHenry. As a part of the event, there are lots of visitors to Baltimore, including a number of tall ships, and some modern navy ships from several countries. I decided to take a spin around the Inner Harbor and see what there was to see. I headed down to Fells Point, and at the rec pier is the HMCS Iroquois of the Canadian Navy.
KRI Dewaruci of Indonesia tied up on Pier 1 with our very own USS Constellation, which lives here in the Inner Harbor.
Cisne Branco of the Brazilian Navy, and behind that is the ARM Cuauhtemoc of the Mexican Navy.
Pride of Baltimore, a reproduction of 19th century Baltimore topsail schooner. It's tied up her at the end of the Constellation Pier.
BAE Guayas of the Ecuadorian Navy. It's tied up on the backside of Pier 4 which houses the National Aquarium.
Blue Angels practicing over our house.
