Happy Columbus Day!

Dave had Columbus Day off yesterday, so we decided to take advantage of one of the few warm sunny days left this year and one of the free activities offered for "Free Fall Baltimore". We went down to the Inner Harbor, toured the USS Constellation (the last sailboat built by the US Navy), had some lunch, and played at the Science Center. Then we came home for naps and made apple fritters. Yum! It was a busy day.
Here is the USS Constellation. Doesn't it look authentic across the Baltimore cityscape?
In the Navy, you can sail the seven seas... I think Owen might be short enough to join the Navy (see below).
The Navy's Civil War uniform. Did we have a Navy during the Civil War? Which side did they fight on? Maybe I should have paid more attention on the ship...
