SUPER SATURDAY!

My day in pictures:
   Completed lesson #7 of 8, swimming 1.5 hours. Spent the next 1.5 hours sunning for a few minutes, jumping in the pool to cool off, sunning, etc. Ended up with a sunburn.
   Grilled up some BBQ chicken and sweet corn that would have made any KC BBQ joint jealous. Really.
On the way to pick up Madeline for our evening plans...
A quick detour through the Plaza...
Passed some construction work areas with great signs!
   Took in some art at the Nelson: a small (under 3' high) model "Dendroid" from artist Roxy Payne. The main event, a film called "The Wolf and the Medallion" is detailed in another post... 
   Not pictured: the fried tofu with awesome sauce, and chicken with black bean sauce at Blue Koi. And it was, in fact, AWESOME. Had a great talk with Madel... it was fun to catch up and talk about our travels.
   And that led to the inevitable stop at Glace´ for some refreshment from the heat (it was still over 90 degrees at 10 pm). Many others had the same idea: there was a line out the door! So we grabbed 3 pints from the case to go...

   And we took them back to Wayne & Diane's place to share. Goat cheese & wildflower honey; fresh mint chocolate chip, and honey sesame. (All were good; the sesame was too subtle. The goat cheese still holds the title as my favorite.)
