Weekend Recap / 2

21 Oct

This past week, I only posted once on Monday night to show honor to a family who just lost their dad. If you have a chance please go back and read this post. It’s about how hard it is to grow up.

This past weekend, Bradley and I got to spend some special time together for our anniversary. We visited the National Aquarium in Baltimore. It’s one of our favorite places that we’ve been together. Plus, we love the Inner Harbor area and getting to walk around the boardwalk at night was a beautiful experience. There was even a wedding reception going on with a live jazz band, right on the water!

My favorite animal in the entire aquarium was the jelly fish. Did you know there is more than one kind? This one had the most amazing ruffles on it. So delicate!

We watched an educational talk about dolphins. It was so much fun to see the dolphin’s rising and diving all around the tank.

I think my favorite place in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is the large Barnes and Noble in an old power plant. It’s probably grandest bookstore I’ve ever seen. When they filled it with books, they left all the old structures, original brick, and lofted shafts. Just look at these pictures:
