On Sunday, Colin and his pal Alex went to the bluegrass birding festival and had a wonderful time playing and laughing together in the cool sunshine.

It’s been quite some time since we updated this site, but we’re still here! Today we took a visit to the Kentucky Horse Park just north of Lexington. It was pretty great getting to see all of the retired champion race horses and the Sumerian war chariot in the International Museum of the Horse.
Nora is currently away for 4 days and 3 nights of sleep-away camp at an undisclosed location in the American West. We went over and toured the place on Saturday and she was very, very excited to go back. There will be camp fires, songs, an art barn, glitter, hiking, and ridiculously late bedtimes. (We can’t wait until she comes home)
We’ve lived here for nearly two years now and, unless you count going to the zoo (which I really don’t), we haven’t really done any touristy stuff in this preeminent tourist city we live so near. This past Sunday we began to correct this error. We did not quite do “it all”, but we definitely did “it much” (or maybe “it many”?). We drove to the City (because that’s what we call it now, just “the city”) and parked our car at Grace Cathedral. We visited the cable car museum and permanently lost some hearing ability. We rode a cable car and watched the filming of some car commercial. We rode a historic trolley along the Embarcadero (isn’t it neat how the the embarcadero is always near the pier??). Our trolley car even happened to be the one dedicated as a tribute to Detroit’s former (and long gone) glorious trolley system. We visited Ghiradelli Square (because chocolate and ice cream). Finally, like a bunch of clever tourists, we chose to walk up Hyde Street from Ghiradelli to Grace Cathedral (and I do mean “up”). Along the way we stopped by the top end of Lombard Street and joined the throng of tourists just standing and gaping at (and taking photos of) … a street.
