All sail, Baltimore!

I have lived in Baltimore for over 40 years and I have never been so proud nor so impressed with the city as I have been this past weekend.

The Sailabration was beautifully orchestrated, and the organizers deserve much credit for a flawless event. The tall ships and all the visiting ships were magnificent with eager visitors. The Blue Angels were simply thrilling.

The harbor was overflowing with happy families. Pierce's Park, our newest park along the water near Pier V, was jammed with joyful children, happy parents and an extraordinary mix of people so impressed with this city.

I wish Baltimore would show itself off like this more often. The cars from out of state were numerous, the shops and restaurants were bustling and the mood was extraordinary. It was Baltimore at its best. We need to do this again and again.
