Project 365 - March 12, 2010

A Day in the Grove

I took the day off from work on Friday to spend it with Rachel and her boyfriend, Noah. Noah grew up in Lafayette, Indiana and is a music major, plays the saxophone and is in the marching band at Indiana State University.

We were attempting to get to Vizcaya to wander around the grounds and just spend the day in a a different setting. Well, best laid plans . . .

Not only did it take us about two hours to get to Miami, but once we go there we were all hungry so we drove past Vizcaya and went to Coconut Grove for lunch. We had a very nice lunch in a sports bar, watched the Ohio State/Michigan NCAA basketball tournament game and waited for the rain to stop.

It didn't.

In fact, it was a record rainfall for that day and we gave up trying to get to Vizcaya. I didnt' mind walking in a light rain with my raincoat. But not in the steady downpour.

So we drove home and ended up at JC Penneys because Rachel needed a dress for a formal event for her sorority. By then it was time to pick up Adina and go home.

Oh well, at least we spent the day together!!
