Pics From Jay's Birthday 7/10

Nah, we didn't have a party, we just basically spent the day together doing stuff around the city, getting up early enough to eat breakfast at Yolk and doing the architectural boat tour on the river afterwards. The camera ran out of juice halfway down the south branch of the river, pah!, but we got some pretty good photos. Dinner at The Grand Lux Cafe after a good couple of hours shopping along State Street. The only damper was the sudden showers in the afternoon, but after sweating it out at temperatures topping 90 degrees, a bit of rain was, a blessedly good thing indeed.

The adventuresome twosome

This is apparently called a "trunnion bascule bridge"
