Rainbow Over Baltimore

Took the kids to the Maryland Science Center to see the Shackleton exhibit and IMAX. Both were excellent, though I got all choked up reading about how they had to shoot and eat their beloved dogs. Thought I was a pervert for having an overwhelming urge to slash Shackleton and Worsley, then saw the movie and watched them dancing with each other to "keep morale up among the men" and decided that in fact there is not enough RPS about famous dead explorers lost for years on end with lots of sturdy sailors for company.

It drizzled on and off and occasionally poured this afternoon, so we didn't bring the camera. So naturally, when we left the museum in the late afternoon, the sun was shining through the haze and there was a spectacular rainbow stretching across the harbor from behind the aquarium to the hills above the carousel by the science center. I really wish I could illustrate it here.

We had wonderful crab soup and salmon in a restaurant in Harborplace overlooking the water and watched the Coast Guard ships patrol it. The temperature hovered near 70 all day. Tomorrow they are threatening us with snow when the front moves through. At least maybe that will clear out the pollen!

In the Stuff and Nonsense department, nostalgia_lj made me very happy by blaming me for her Bashir/O'Brien story, "Not A Love Song". And juleskicks has the Aragorn/Boromir/Arwen archive Dying In His Name up and running.
