This past weekend, Brad and I went on another adventure. I must say that I TOTALLY LOVE TRAVELING! This trip included a bus tour to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. We loaded the bus at 7 a.m. on Friday. Our bus ride this time was on one of the charter buses with roomy seats, a bathroom, and movie showings on the way down. After a few bathroom and food stops, we arrived at the “Home of the Orioles” at around three that afternoon. Brad and I were able to head down to the harbor and take in the sites. We also experienced some authentic food from Spain. The harbor area was beautiful. It seemed like a boardwalk area with various shops and restaurants.
There was also several historic ships and fancy yachts. After taking in the sights, we headed back to the ballpark where we settled in our seats behind home plate. It was a really nice night to take in a game. The weather was very comfortable and there were blue skies above us. I have to admit that the game was not as exciting as I was hoping for.
Well, at least not until the tenth inning. Yep, the Sox and the Orioles played 13 innings! The Sox got the job done by scoring two runs in that inning. We were hoping to see Manny hit his 500th home run that night (it was his birthday!), but just being there and seeing the Sox win was enough for us. That night offered us a good night’s sleep-we didn’t get settled into our hotel room until 2 a.m.
Tomorrow it is of to cruise around Washington DC.
