I'm on a Boat

You probably think I'm going to write about the Andy Samberg digital short. You know the one. Where he's on a boat with T-Pain and rapping about being on a boat and wearing his flippy floppies. Only THE BEST digital short by the guy EVER.

Ok. So no, I wasn't planning on writing about that, but then found myself doing so anyway. Now on to what I was really referring to. At each school year closing, we tend to have a lot of fun with the 8th graders as a last shebang before they graduate and we send them off to high school. This year was the second year that our 8th graders decided to take the Spirit of Baltimore for a lunch cruise.

Spending the day boating around Baltimore is by far one of the better on the job experiences I've had. You know, just another day in the classroom, boating around the harbor and out the the Key Bridge. Sure beats a Baltimore city schools classroom.

This year I decided to bring my nice camera instead of the point and shoot because, quite frankly, seeing Baltimore from a whole new perspective is pretty awesome.

 This is the third time I've had the chance to check out Baltimore from a different view. Kind of makes me want to buy my own boat so I can cruise around any old time.


  1. Great pics Heidi! Makes me nostalgic for Fell's Point in the summer; I think I may be planning a visit soon!

  2. Great pictures! Looks like you had fun.

  3. Those are such awesome shots! My favorite is the city pier one.

    I've only been to Baltimore once, but next time I go, I definitely want to do the lunch cruise.

  4. heidi, these photos are amazing. i LOVE the one with the "city pier" building in the foreground. what a lucky treat for the 8th graders (and you!) i'm sure they love it!

  5. I love all of these pictures. I want to frame them and display them.


  6. Awesome photos. I've been to the harbor in Baltimore several times and I just love it. You really captured it in these photos.

  7. Wow! What a great way to send them off. Looks like a perfect day.

  8. Can't believe this was your post since we JUST cruised through there, granted via highway. LOVE the photos, and the cruise sounds like fun!
