Returning from the cruise, we rented a car and drove to Pittsburgh to visit John’s mother, Audrey. It was nice to spend the time catching up.
Back again in Baltimore, we made some time to see the town before heading south to Annapolis again. We had left Anhinga at Tidewater Yacht Services marina in Port Covington while we were on the cruise and in Pittsburgh, and that became our home for a few days. This is a very well-run marina, with the nicest people, and we would stay there again. We discovered the free Circulator bus ran nearby and took that back and forth to the Inner Harbor, Fells Point, and Harbor East. The summer heat waves kept us from walking as long and far as we wanted, but we got a really good feel for the city.
