I just found out yesterday that Veronica has several business trips that are scheduled for her to go on. If it is not a flying situation, I always try to go with her and split up the driving between the 2 of us. We will be going to Baltimore and then Pennsylvania. While in Baltimore, I want to take the opportunity to go to the harbor area and take some photos there. I would also like to go see a bakery called the Charm City Cakes. Duff Goldman is the owner and he along with his team of bakers create extreme cakes. You might have seen his show, Ace of Cakes, on the Food Network. I know that we won't be able to actually go into the bakery because entry is by appointment only but I would like to get a photo of the building. Duff and his friends make some really beautiful works of cake art. Here is a link to his official web site. If you go there, click on the "Flash" and on the next page, click on the "Cakes". It will show you approximately 160 cakes that they have created. The cakes cover all kinds of genres and styles. Some are truly amazing. I am not quite sure where we are going in Pennsylvania but I will find something interesting to photograph and share with you. This trip will be during the 2nd week in October. During the last week in October, we will be going somewhere in New Jersey. I believe it is Mt. Laurel, which is approximately 24 miles to the West of Philadelphia. Those should be some fun trips.
Only 16 days until Veronica and I head up North, to Canada, to do some fishing and total relaxation. It has been approximately 15 months since we were there last. It will be great to see our friends up there and to see my favorite camp dog...Dakota. We already have most of our clothes packed. Just toiletries and some small items to pack up yet. It was hard to pack this year. Usually we go up to Andy Myers Lodge on Eagle Lake during the month of June. We bring mainly warm weather clothes. This year we had to bring a little of everything to cover all possibilies that mother nature might have in store for us. That time of year the weather can really change from one day to the next. It will be great to be back in the boat every morning waiting to see what adventures and fish come our way. With a little luck, we will both catch our trophy fish this year!!!!
