My other world.. the work week

That's MY World Sept, 28,2009, for more great photos please click on my link for That's My World. Thanks to the guys and gals who do the hosting of That's My World. Thanks also for stopping by my blog and My world.

Federal Hill



For this weeks "That's My World" I decided to take a lunch time walk to the Harborplace. It is just a short walk from my office. There are a lot of attractions for the tourist and some great restaurants for lunch. Since the work week is a good chunk of my world and my life I thought showing where I work would be a good entry.


Harborplace is full of eateries and small shops




Sometimes I like walking during my lunch time and the harbor is a great place for walking. Not far from here and just around the corner is the place where Francis Scott Key wrote the Star Spangled Banner. On this day I was even able to get in some birding during my lunch I saw a few ducks in the harbor and lots of gulls.


The water taxi's can take you to other attractions and neighborhoods in the city. As far as tourist attractions just to name a few there are the Science Center, Aquarium, Hard Rock, ESPN zone and the Galleria mall.




ESPN, Hard Rock Cafe, Barnes and Nobles and part of the National Aquarium in Baltimore




The pointed glass section of the aquarium is where the rainforest is located.










The Baltimore Orioles  baseball stadium, the Ravens stadium is on the left side and not seen from this area.




I am wondering if ayone can guess what city I am in, without me saying. Does anyone know where I am in these pictures? I am sure there is at least one picture that is a great hint. If you are a sports fanatic(or a baseball fan) the last picture is a big hint.

Eileen: I have never been there but my wife thinks the area is neat. You have shown it wonderfully.

The waterfront looks like the perfect place to take a walk at lunchtime and offload all the morning's stress - not that your job has any stress. LOL

Tabib said...

Very cool and relaxing place to work in.

Ebie said...

Aren't you lucky to get those great harbor views? Its just wonderful to get a breath of fresh air!
I should guess, Chesapeake Bay, Maryland?

Carver said...

Great shots. Looks like a pleasant walk. I've enjoyed walking around your city myself. Since my daughter has recently moved back to your city (she was there for undergrad school then away for grad school but has recetnly moved back to B - - - E), I know where it is.

I like your Work World... or at least the part where you take your breaks! Did you hop the water taxi and take photos all up and down the harbor to lead us astray? Am I way too gullible if I guess Baltimore?

Della said...

I have no ide where it is, but there seems to be a lot of things to do. And the harbour and waterfront looks a bit bigger than here in my town :)

Lawstude said...

hmmm. very tricky question but mind giving another clue :). anyways, these are awesome shots of the busy harbor.

Grace and Bradley said...

Baltimore Inner Harbour area looks like a real neat place. I presume there's been a load of regeneration work done to make it a most pleasant city gem.

(Oh, and google is my friend!)

I think Camden Yards is in Baltimore. I have been to inner harbor and it was spectacular at night. I never even liked neon before I was there. It certainly was gray the day you were there. It really made the red of the boat stand out. Great pictures.

I have been to Fort McHenry. Thanks for showing me more of your area. I find it very enticing.

That second photo looks like Norfolk, Virginia. But the pointy building in the following photos doesn't match. Let me know what the right answer was.

Denise said...

Baltimore! But I see someone has already guessed that. Great photos! I recognized the harbor as we have been there a few times over the years. Great place to take a walk, nice break from work.

What a great place to stroll for lunch!

I was in Harborplace a few years ago on a very cold December day. I very much enjoyed seeing the Constellation.

Allison said...

Looks like a great place to take a lunch break!

Janie said...

Baltimore? Beautiful harbor stroll. Thanks for taking us along.

Gattina said...

There is a Camden town in London, but obviously it's not there, so I have no idea !!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Hmmm' -- wonder where you are ;>)? We've never been to Baltimore, but hope to get up that way next Spring. I bet you went back to work very refreshed and ready to go after that lovely walk.

I'm not sure where you are, but I read James Michener's Chesapeake quite a number of years ago. He demonstrated a love for the area and the ecology of the area in the book.

Looks like a nice place to walk around with a camera.
