There’s no place like home

Hello again, my friends!   The traveler returns, bearing many happy memories, and almost as many photos. The fall colors were just starting to display in St. Louis, where we saw just a portion of Forrest Park.  The park was built as part of the 1904 World’s Fair, and is bigger than New York City’s Central Park. (All together now, hum “Meet Me in St. Louis”.)    The day we spent there was DH’s birthday. As he loves October and all things autumnal, it is appropriate to feature his day in fall color.

The St. Louis Museum of History is housed in a building that was erected for the fair.  It  features exhibits on Lindbergh’s flight and on the 1904 World’s Fair.  I’ll share some of those pictures on another day.

In an exhibit on St. Louis outdoor recreation we found winter knitwear. (And you thought this post would be void of knitted content!  Never underestimate the power of a knitter to sniff out fiber.)

The birthday boy had to have a celebration of his own.  The day had turned off rainy, as a cold front came through. How better to finish off the day than with a supper in an Irish pub. We got the table by the fireplace, and the fire was much appreciated.  Happy birthday, dear!
