This is kind of militaria related. This past few days the City of Baltimore held a "Sailabration" to commemorate the start of the War of 1812. This event featured domestic and foreign ships of war as well as Tall Ships. Unfortunately, I went on a day when it was completely cloudy and partly rainy. It had been sunny without a cloud in the sky all weekend. Just my luck!
Here you will find photos of the different ships. The US ships were in secure sections and I just ran out of time to get to them and thru security. I was tyring to get photos of the ships you don't usually see, from countries you don't usually associate with having a Navy. Also, the Baltimore downtown skyline is viewable in many of the pics.
First up, the NOAA research vessel.
