On the Road Again!

August 12, 2011

We left Virginia Beach around 8:30 a.m. and headed over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to our next destination, the National Aquarium at Baltimore. During the ride, we heard several “expert topic” reports and enjoyed some journaling time on the bus. Along the way we stopped for lunch at a Wendy’s in Maryland, and were quite surprised when the cashier came and told us quietly that we had to leave; a fire had broken out in the kitchen! We watched the fire truck pull up and were impressed by how quickly the small grease fire was extinguished.

When we arrived at the National Aquarium we were greeted by Nancy Hotchkiss, Vice President of Visitor and Guest Experiences. Using the materials she shares with their teen volunteer, Nancy gave us an excellent introduction to climate change. We then had a chance to explore the aquarium before heading to dinner at Amici’s in the Little Italy section of Baltimore. We look forward to spending our morning at the aquarium before getting back on the bus for the drive to Mystic!

    So where DID you eat lunch, if not at Wendy’s?

      Almost everyone had finished eating before we had to evacuate. It really meant no dessert for anyone!
