We were in New Hampshire for a college fraternity reunion in October and took advantage of the opportunity to tour the environs of Lake Winnipesaukee.  The leaves are brilliantly colored at this time of the year.  We had never been to Dartmouth College and enjoyed a walk around the campus.  We sailed on the lake aboard the M/S Mount Washington and saw some beautiful homes.  Another highlight was a visit to the very up market Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods.  A small room in the hotel is the birthplace of the IMF and the World Bank.  There are many pictures of this trip on the fraternity website at www.phisig61.com

The highlight of our trip to Baltimore was the redeveloped Inner Harbor.  Most impressive was the National Aquarium, the exterior seen here from the water.  Inside, there are a wide variety of displays that are not limited to fish.  We saw the harbor from a Seadog boat, which goes nice and slow in the harbor, but races out to the Key Bridge - very exciting.  The bridge is named for Francis Scott Key who wrote the national anthem while being held as a prisoner while Fort McHenry was under attack during the War of 1812.  A visit to the fort includes participation in folding a full-sized replica of the Stars and Stripes.
