Sunday, July 18th, my convention room mate and I drove to Baltimore and checked in at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront hotel. Our room was on the 27th floor, and as you can see, we had quite the view up above the city.

Dolly & Me By the Sea: UFDC 72nd Annual Convention 2021 - Baltimore, MD - Part 1
My travel companion for the convention is Merry, a Little Darling doll by Dianna Effner. I thought it was fitting that she should wear her Region 11 Regional Conference outfit on the first day - Maryland, represent!
After checking in at the convention registration desk and getting our bags and convention journals, we ventured out of the hotel to find dinner. Right outside of the back of the hotel is a traffic circle with a beautiful and impressive statue - the National Katyn Memorial - dedicated to the victims of the 1940 katyn massacre of Polish nationals.
Masks off for a brief pre-convention selfie.
We had dinner at an excellent sushi restaurant really close by - Chiu's Sushi. We shared a sushi platter and takoyaki. Sooooo good.
The souvenir tote bag, journal, and the convention program.
After dinner, we went to the At Your Service Ice Cream Social to socialize and eat ice cream, of course.
