Baltimore girls make vacation memories on Baltimore Avenue

As news of the pandemic spread last year, fears were heightened, both spring and summer trips were canceled, and my family grieved our annual trip to Rehoboth Beach in early spring 2020.

To be honest, we only just started the trip in 2019. My family is small and our traditions are young, but they mean a lot to us. My daughters Blair and Harper are both elementary school age and attend the same institution here in our home of Baltimore city, which gives them the advantage of having the same days off, spring break included.

Inside the Outdoors: Ice once meant much more than just recreation

Just four months ago, on the last weekend of the 2020 waterfowl hunting season here—the first weekend of December—this big, deep lake officially iced over.

DEAR TRAVEL TROUBLESHOOTER: In August 2019, I booked two roundtrip tickets to Lisbon on TAP Air Portugal, using Flight Network, an online travel agency. In March 2020, two months before my scheduled departure, TAP notified me of a significant schedule change. My new outbound flight departed a day later than originally scheduled. My new return flight left two hours earlier.

Christopher Elliott, the Travel Troubleshooter 

Considering these changes, I requested a full refund, as all my travel plans were essentially negated. Almost two weeks later, Flight Network notified me that my flights were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and
