Poe Side Of Town

Today's song is from the Strawberry Alarm Clock band, Barefoot In Baltimore from 1968.

Earlier this week I spent a few hours in Baltimore, Maryland with my wife, Sherry. We took a break from our other activities and walked around the inner harbor area and nearby neighborhoods.

One of the places that caught my attention was the grave of Edgar Allan Poe (shown above and below). Baltimore is the city he died in back in 1849. His earlier home is not far from his final resting place, but we did not go there.

Instead, Sherry and walked to the inner-harbor area and took in some of the sites and stores. We asked questions at the Visitors Center and ate some lunch in one of the fine restaurants that are located next to that location.

I liked Baltimore, the way it is laid out, the city's architecture, the people we met there. The downtown area is much larger than San Diego's downtown appears to me. It's a bustling metropolis closely connected with the activities of Washington, DC.

I didn't get the chance to go barefoot right along the Chesapeake Bay with Sherry as the song's lyrics suggest; that's maybe for another time someday when it's a bit warmer there.

Just for fun, I created a new page, Time Out Of Mind Frappr Map. It links to my section on the Frappr site and is a place to leave your location, image, and comments. I'm curious to see where my readers reside on this planet and this new site makes it easy to do just that!

Today is Veterans Day and a time to remember those who served our country in the armed forces throughout its history to keep us free. I recall my October, 1990 visit to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier located in Arlington National Cemetery. All Americans should go there at least once in their life to experience the solemn changing of the guard ceremony and read the history of that hallowed ground.
