We have an old wooden frigate that is berthed at the Inner Harbour called the Constellation, the sister ship to the Constitution in Boston. This weekend, as part of the commissioning ceremony for the The USS Sterett, the Navy's newest $1.3 billion guided-missile destroyer, the Constellation left its berth and took the three-mile trip to the other side of the penninsula.
It was just the most gorgeous evening, with temps in the low 80's, no humidity and a nice fresh breeze. As the Constellation left the Inner Harbour, I began snapping photos, and then followed the ship out to the little dock at the end of the street where I used to live.As the sun was beginning to set, Constellation headed out to Fort McHenry, birthplace of the National Anthem, where they were flying the huge 30 x 40 foot flag.
It really was just a spectacular evening and I am so pleased I could share it with you.As always, thanks for reading!
