What would a city be without tame pigeons? This one hopped right up onto Dave's hand as we were sitting near the Inner Harbor -- he said its feet were really soft. (No, we weren't feeding them.)
We even had birds painted on the ceiling of our bedroom at the historic inn where we stayed. Each corner had a different bird composition.
Stay tuned for Victoria's gardens,
harbor, downtown and quilts.
