Virtu Art Fair

This weekend we were happy to have a visit from DiAnn (Sheri's mom).  The long Memorial Day weekend started off cold and rainy, but by Sunday it has cleared enough for us to venture out to the Westerly art fair in the park (aka the Virtu Art Fair).  Attendance by both the exhibitors and the customers was down from previous years, but we still had a good time looking around.

Asleep at the Wheel

Last Thursday we enjoyed an evening of Western swing music at the Katherine Hepburn Performing Arts Center in Old Saybrook.  The music from "Asleep at the wheel" was simply great. If you ever get a chance to see them we thoroughly recommend it.

Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen!

We just returned home from a spring trip to wonderful Copenhagen (the one in Denmark, not New York).  It started off with a short conference for Bruno in nearby Malmo (Sweden) and then Sheri, Nick and Pam (Bruno's parents) joined him for the remainder of he week.

We rented an apartment just outside of the downtown, overlooking the water in a newly revived neighborhood.  It took us 24 hours to get acclimatized to city living, but we quickly managed to find all the nearby conveniences (commuter rail station, water taxi stop, local park, etc).

We spent the week exploring the city, with highlights including the fantastic palaces, gardens and city architecture.  One day we took a 45 minute train ride to Lund (Sweden) and enjoyed a different pace of life in this historic university town.  For the whole week we were blessed with fine weather and warm temperatures for the time of year.
