Baltimore

Visionary Art Museum, Baltimore MD

If you are looking for a great way to beat the winter blues and need to get out of the house, without being out in the cold (brrr!), head over to the Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD. Β Being from "DC" my whole life, my only problem with the Visionary is that you have to pay to enter (the horror!), but it's well worth it for a special Saturday afternoon treat. Β There are two main buildings, an Art Gallery and a Gallery of the Famous Kinetic Sculptures that make their debut on the inner harbor in Baltimore each May. This past Saturday, my buddy Megan and I headed over to the Visionary for an art date and had a great time! Β I might be going back soon too, they have great Arts and Crafts Classes offered in the Museum as well.

Here are a couple of the best pictures from our Day at the Gallery!

Dream Date in Baltimore

Today's Daydreams lead me back to August when the hubby and I went to a little place in Baltimore called "The Black Olive". Tucked away in Fells Point, off the beaten path, this place surely surprises its guests with fresh produce on the menu, a display of fresh caught seafood, and a BEAUTIFUL patio out back that makes you feel like you have died and gone to Greece, Italy or somewhere on the Mediterranean.

The Black Olive also features an Inn (adjoined) that has become LEED certified and is a GREEN Building. Super Cool!
