Photo of the Day: Mt. Vernon

Construction is ongoing at the corner of Calvert Street and E. Biddle Street at what used to be the Inn at Government House, and what will be the Ivy Hotel in 2014. The new luxury boutique hotel that should be opening in April will have rates potentially around $650/night according to the Baltimore Business Journal.

Whatever the cost to spend the night inside is, it's free to look at it from the outside, and what a magnificent restoration it will be when it is finished.

Photo of the Day - Fort McHenry

August 14: The Star Spangled Banner flies over Fort McHenry as it always does, every hour of every day. It was a great day for a stroll around the fort. It felt more like autumn than summer.
