A nice afternoon

Kathleen and I went out for a brief ride this afternoon, a quick spin up to Druid Lake and back.  It was a gorgeous day, not particularly humid, and fluffy clouds all over the sky.

We came back around the Clipper Mill on the other side of Druid Lake Park, and I spotted this windmill.

Just around the corner in the complex was this as well, it's suspended by the old mill crane arrangement.

Then it was back to the house to get cleaned up.   It was dinner and a movie night for us, we have both been super busy, so it was good to get out and enjoy ourselves for the evening, I shot this with the phone at dinner at Tapas Teatro.

Awesome dinner, and very appropo as the Vuelta A Espana starts today (I think).  It's right next door to the Charles Theater so we went to see In A World which was hysterical.

Monday Morning Murals

In an effort to get back into some sort of regular riding pattern, I got up reasonably early and went out for a ride this morning.   Just a quick buzz around Highlandtown (the other side of the park) and back.   At the Creative Alliance at the Patterson I spotted this mural.

And right across the street from there, this one.

A little further into Highlandtown this mural was quite the sight.

Then it was back to the house to get ready for work.

Catching Up

It's been a crazy month, lots of work stuff going on.   I spent two weekends in Newport, Rhode Island for the Folk then Jazz Festivals there.   Gorgeous location, we were at Fort Adams State Park.   Our stage was the Fort (Main) Stage, and we had a ton of great acts across the stage each weekend.   So this was the view from the stage.

And this was the audience's view of our stage, we are right in the crook of the fort there.

But last weekend Kathleen and I got out for a ride out to North Point State Park, nothing too exciting but I did get a good shot of Kathleen as we rode out of the park.

Today Kathleen was off at Luray doing the bike leg of the Triathlon there as part of a relay team.  I went out for a spin this afternoon.   It must have been a special occasion, there was a block party around the corner on Chester.

I went around the Inner Harbor to Federal Hill and out to Fort McHenry.  Coming back I cut through Locust Point, and spotted a couple of fire trucks, but none of the activity you would expect if there was a fire.

But it wasn't a fire, it was another block party.  It really was a great day for it, today was very late September like, mild temps and low humidity.

Coming back I passed back through the Inner Harbor, and they are getting ready for the Grand Prix that is coming up Labor Day weekend.

Then it was back to the house to get cleaned up, Kathleen got home and we had some lounging around time and mexican food.
