MOCers embarked on a hike through eight neighborhoods
ringing the Baltimore harbor. No one fell in the
pristine waters of the harbor unless it happened on
our lunch break free time.
We saw the Liberty Ship John W. Brown set sail, which is
one of the few remaining ships specifically
designed and mass produced to supply the Allies in
World War II.
We walked through time, passing historic buildings,
houses, churches, monuments, and a fort in a city that
dates to the 1730s.
We smelled the bread products of John Paterakisís H&S
Bakery and the molasses from the Dominoís sugar
refinery. The port was busy with huge ships importing
On our lunch free time, some toured Ft. McHenry and
learned about the victorious defense of Baltimore
against British forces days after the imperialists had
burned Washington. Others enjoyed the beautiful
sunshine and relaxed by the water.
I think we all had fun and saw new scenery. Many
pictures were taken, so please send them in.
