Day 1, NOV 29, Baltimore


Room views  Not bad, same as all the other cruises that we have gone on

Cruise port of Baltimore.  Next to 95.  Very easy access.

Cable repair ships

More Port of Baltimore Views

US Coast Guard escorted us all the way past Calvert Cliffs Nuclear plant.  I guess they are concerned that the
Captin may want to ram the cruise ship into the nuclear power plant ??

Masonville Cove

What began as the restoration of an abandoned and neglected parcel of land in the Middle Branch has become something very
special. Masonville Cove is 70 acres of water and 54 acres of cleaned-up wetlands, nature trails, and a protected bird sanctuary,
all soon-to-be protected by a conservation easement and part of the Shores of Baltimore Land Trust. The Masonville project developed
from mitigation tied to the creation of a Dredged Material Containment Facility (DMCF) by the Maryland Port Administration (MPA).
