Vacation Begins at the Ball Park

Although it is only Saturday morning, I am actually on vacation for the next two weeks! Yay.

Camden Yards, July 11, 2014
There is something really neat about waking up in the morning and realizing that I am enjoying a weekend that won't end for a long time. It takes the usual stress off the weekend mornings. 

My vacation started last evening with a second night in a row trip to Camden Yards to watch the Orioles defeat an opponent by one run in a nail biting, well-played game. Since we have visitors form the northlands in town who were here to cheer their team, I decided to upgrade to the Club Level for the evening. My experience was superior to the night before in every way. 
DirecTv Blimp over Baltimore
July 11, 2014

It must have been an important game against the team from up north who shall remain nameless, because there was a blimp in the air to monitor the activity. We do not see many blimps here in Baltimore and so it was special. Who knew that DirecTv has a blimp?

By the end of the evening, The Orioles had vanquished their foe for the evening and thereby assured themselves of being alone atop the American League East at the All Star Break.  Perhaps ESPN will begin to recognize the talent in this team. 

But vacation continues today with a trip to the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum to do some research and reconnect with my aerospace roots. I wish they had a B-52, Oh wait, why would they have a B-52? The 50 year old aircraft is still in active service.

And then? Well, I hear the Willamette Valley calling. There is wine there that needs to be sampled.

Vacation--so many things to do and see and so little time.
