Sailing the Chesapeake

One of the best things about our cruise vacation was sailing out of the Port of Baltimore. Other than the awesomeness of not having to fly to the port, once you sail out of the port, you sail down the Chesapeake Bay, under the bridges, and out to sea. It takes almost 10 hours to get from port out to the Atlantic and it was a great journey along the way.

bye-bye Baltimore!

chugging along the Chesapeake
you can tell by the pictures that the weather was crazy - sunny one minute, cloudy the next. we spotted this rainbow and were actually able to see the entire arch. unfortunately, I didn't have a wide enough lens with me to capture the whole thing.
