It was a day of bi-polar weather with the sunrise illuminating the snow that was heavily falling on the bay. By noon, the dark gray skies moved east, opening up to beautiful bright blue skies with puffy clouds.
I had visions of visiting the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore and drove up there, only to be reminded that it is closed during the week in February. So heading off to another sightseeing stop, my car lead me to Fort McHenry along the Patapsco River.
The enormous freighters made me feel as if I was the size of an ant. Even a passing tug boat was dwarfed by the monstrous buildings and ships that lined the waterline. The winds were blowing strong, with the American Flag flapping in the wind high above the fort.
The American Robins and Cedar Waxwings were busy at the holly berry trees foraging to their hearts content.
And a pair of Buffleheads kept their heads tucked into their wings, bracing against the wind.
Don’t knock the weather;
nine-tenths of the people couldn’t start a conversation
if it didn’t change once in a while.
