Adrian & me playing COD5

Today we all slept in since we were out late last night and Lena decided to take the day off of work to spend our last day with Adrian & Myra. I started breakfast while Lena made Cappuccino for her and Myra. Scrambled eggs with cheese, sausage, fried potatoes and toast was on the menu this morning, and looking out the kitchen window at the cloudy/rainy weather, we were in no hurry to eat and get going.

            The plan was to go to Baltimore's Inner Harbor and walk around a bit, grab something to eat at Hard Rock, then take Adrian to BWI Airport around 4:30 for his 6:00pm flight back to Arizona. We decided to leave around 1:30pm for the Inner Harbor, which gave us a few hours still to kill, so Adrian and I continued on our quest in saving the world, and each other, on XBox360 - Call of Duty 5.

Our beer samplers

            As the time drew near, bags were packed and we headed out, but first I decided to drive them over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge onto Kent Island, then over the Kent Narrows bridge onto Maryland's Eastern Shore. A quick turn around and back over the Chesapeake Bay and we were on our way. Next,  we needed to stop at the bank for Adrian and Myra, which happened to be very near the Airport. Once we found the bank they needed, it started to rain, so we decided to forgo the Inner Harbor and find a place close by and grab a bite to eat. Lena suggested we go to Arundel Mills Mall and get something there since there are lots of restaurants in and around this very big mall complex. Once there, we decided on a place call DuClaw Brewing Co.

Adrian does't want to shair.
Lena and I have been here before and the food is usually good, and they have a good selection of beer as well :) Once the hostess came up, she told us it was happy hour in the bar area with half off appetizers; enough said, we're all over that!

            We ordered four different appetizers, the girls ordered non-alcoholic drinks, and Adrian and I each ordered the beer sampler. This is a small glass of five featured beers, plus five of their seasonal beers. Most of these where good, but some I had to just chug it to get past the taste, and one both Adrian and I could not even drink any more of after the first sip! After all the beer, I was feeling pretty good, and Adrian was ready for his flight home. Lena had to drive of course since I was in no shape to, and we headed to BWI Airport.

We parked and walked Adrian to the check in counter, where he found out his flight doesn't leave until 6:30pm. So, we had an hour to kill, which we did by sharing a very large hot chocolate brownie with ice cream and whipped cream on top. Good thing there were four of us, because we would not have been able to eat it all! This thing was huge!!

            Well the time had come to walk to the security gate and say goodbye to my dear friend and TravBuddy Adrian. Funny how after chatting with him for a year or so on line, reading his blogs and reviews, and looking through all his pictures, he was exactly like I thought he would be. He's a great person and fun to hang out with, chilled and relaxed, and willing to lay on top of a grenade to save my ass in the heat of battle! I was so glad to finally meet him face to face and spend two great days with him and his girl Myra.

Saying see ya later :)
I know we will meet again, and soon I hope! Travel well my friend

            The last thing we needed to do now was drive Myra to the New Carrollton Metro Station so she could get back to her place in Virginia. It didn't take long and we arrived at the station and said our goodbyes to her. She is so nice and easy going, and very easy to talk to.  I hope her next two weeks here on the East Coast go buy quickly so she can get back home to Adrian :) It was a real pleasure having them both with us and can't wait to see then again!
