Gallery: Pride of Baltimore II visits Detroit
We had a great visit with the Pride of Baltimore II at the end of last week. The weather was perfect, the ear-blasting jets were flying low over the water, the Riverwalk was bright and alive — even the mayflies came out in throngs to lend their greetings.
Captain Jamie Trost kindly filled me in on all the fascinating details. Pride II is on a Great Lakes tour specifically targeting War of 1812 towns, since Maryland is hosting a huge bicentennial campaign. We are already planning a trip out! Maryland State tourism campaign: SUCCESSFUL!
If you missed it, we took some photos (but not enough photos!) that I hope will also tell you a little more about Pride II’s history and mission.
Enjoy! And ahoy!
