On the way in to Baltimore's Inner Harbor, I'd add the Francis Scott Key Buoy, which marks the spot where the poem that became our national anthem was written.

Chef2sail: I'm glad you added these - great spots.

across from langford on the Chester is Corsica River where about 3 miles up is a cove you cabn dinghy ashore and walk the old Russian retreat embassy
You're not talking about the red Georgian mansion at the mouth of the Corsica, right? I didn't know you could come ashore there and walk around.

There are lots of retreats for DC movers and shakers along the Eastern Shore between Wye and Cambridge that make for good general interest in an article.

Wye Island conference facilities get used by diplomatic and other international meetings. Long history of very interesting people whisked in and out of there.

sail fast and eat well, dave
