Last day in my 20's...

What a fun last day in my 20's!

Early in the afternoon we will go to the Butchers Hill Flea Market & Craft Fair downtown... There will be over 100 booths of vendors. Live music. Fair food. oh, and it feels like fall.

In the evening we will get dinner in the neighborhood and head back downtown to see our very first Charm City Roller Girls Bout! I will post pictures next week.

Saturday - A day of firsts

We have been in Baltimore about 6 months now. Seeing an O's game was a must on our list of things to do. With the season coming to an end the pressure was building. So Saturday we caught an afternoon game. We had prefect shady seats to watch a fun game,the O's won!!!
Earlier in the day I got my first major hair cut/color in three years.
The winning moment!
We drank our first beers in aluminum bottles....
My personal favorite! We saw our first beauty pageant winner, Miss Maryland. How bizarre...

Exhibit - Expressions In Wine & Music at Pure Wine Cafe

I began painting again a few weeks ago after reading a call for wine art on Craigslist. Last night we dropped these paintings off at their new home, The Pure Wine Cafe in Ellicott City, MD. The paintings will be on display for two months. The opening event will be Monday Sept. 7th.

The top two paintings are the most recent. The bottom three I have posted in the past.

Wednesday sail

As I mentioned in an earlier post we joined a sailing club in downtown Baltimore. We have taken the first crew class and have sailed once or twice a week all summer. Last night was the first time I took my camera (the winds were low and the light was luscious).

We arrived a little late so we had to wait for a skipper to show up. The wind smelled of sweet molten sugar. Some days the wind smells like sugar (the Domino Sugar factory)and others it smells like freshly baked bread (H&S Bread Factory in Fells Point).

If you look at the top of the above picture you will see a little arrow. That arrow points in the direction of the wind. It is your guide when at the tiller.

Baltimore has several great neon signs. The Domino Sugars sign is one of them.
