Note 1:  Everyone says Baltimore Inner Harbor is a good visit.  We did not think too much of Georgetown.

Note 2: Stayed because Bella Luna had engine trouble.  Eat at the big seafood restaurant just across the parking lot south of Utch’s.

Note 3:  There used to be a looper who was a member and loopers could stay for $1 per foot.  His first name was John but I do not know his phone or last name.  The fellow you are traveling with on the cat might know.

Note 4:  We went here for one night,  $4 per foot,  so Muriel could see NYC from across the river at night.

Note 5: Went from here by rented car to visit West Point.

Note 6: Walk up to Main Street, 2 or 3 blocks, breakfast for $2.99.
