Yesterday's Around the Inner Harbor listing should have sai that the National Aquarium lecture on aquatic eyesight will be delivered tomorrow by Dr. Stuart R. Dankner.

The Sun regrets the errors.


Ever wonder how that huge great white shark was able to see those swimming people-munchies in the movie "Jaws"? Dr. Stuart R. Danker, a pediatric and adolescent ophthalmologist, will discuss tomorrow how the vision of aquatic animals differs from human vision. The lecture will be held at the National Aquarium in Baltimore from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. with an encore from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Tickets are $10 each for aquarium members and $15 for nonmembers. Admission is for each child. Parents accompanying children do not have to pay, but reservations are required. To reserve a seat or gain more information: 576-3800.



You can walk all the way around the Inner Harbor Sunday on the Waterfront Promenade, which is 70 percent complete now -- close enough to make the full, planned, 7.5-mile route walkable.

The promenade links Canton on the east and Key Highway on the west, including the Inner Harbor area. The 20-foot wide pathway at water's edge provides walkers with attractive vistas of the city's old and new waterfront area. More than 1 million bricks have gone into the promenade thus far, with more to go under the auspices of the Baltimore Harbor Endowment.

If you want to do this walk in an organized way, Sunday's sixth annual Waterfront Walk, sponsored by WBAL-TV and C-Mart, will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., starting at Canton Waterfront Park. Registration is $5 for individuals, $10 for families and can be accomplished in advance by calling 732-8156.

For the money, you get a walk souvenir, a free water taxi ride, half-price admission coupon to the Baltimore Museum of Industry, 1415 Key Highway, and refreshments along the way. The refreshments are donated by waterfront businesses. Walkers will board water taxis and skim across the harbor to the Baltimore Museum of Industry, where the walk will begin, and end back at Canton.

You'll see attractions such as: the American Visionary Art Museum, Harborplace; the Seven-Foot Knoll Lighthouse; Fells Point; and the Robert Long House, a restored 18th-century sea captain's home.

Proceeds will benefit the Baltimore Harbor Endowment and its mission of creating public access to the waterfront and promoting appreciation of the Harbor.

It's Chevy time at the Baltimore Museum of Industry from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. tomorrow. The museum will offer a show of Chevrolets and other General Motors vehicles on the grounds.

The show will be held rain or shine. Children will able to build a cardboard replica of a 1917 moving van, which is part of the museum's collection, on the Children's Motorworks Assembly Line at 1 p.m. The Maryland Automotive Modelers Association will also present a model car show in the Butler Building. The Museum's Choice Award judging for best car model will be held at 3 p.m. and at 4 p.m. for real cars. Admission is $3.50 for adults and $2.50 for seniors and students. There is an additional materials charge for the assembly line.


The Pride of Baltimore II, the city's trademark sailing vessel, docked yesterday in Puerto Vallarta, on Mexico's west coast, on its way home from an extensive Pacific tour. Fearing the track of Hurricane Rosa, the Pride will ride out the storm there. Rosa is packing winds up 95 mph with gale wind radius out 125 nautical miles.

After the storm departs, the Pride will head for Acapulco and then on to Panama where she will remain in port, preparing to transit the Canal and steer back to Baltimore.
