KC was great, but we didn't get to see our niece Lauren, and here about her trip to Bonaroo. We did get to hang with Melinda. Yeehaw.

Last week we had two failed attempts at trying to hear free music in Garfield PArk here in Indy. The Indianapolis Symphony got rained out on Tuesday, and a free Bluegrass show got rained out Friday. But I did end up taking Pat Garvey and John Wallace to see the Amazing Sunken Garden of Gafield PArk, with its wonderful dancing colored fountain.

Sunday was the Idyllic Summer Day. Breezy. Partly Cloudy. Low 80s. So we went canoeing down the Driftwood River between Edinburg and Columbus, Indiana. The water was high, but still in the banks. We shot along at a fair clip. The final rapids were as wild as I have seen in Indiana. Afterward we went to Columbus' Mill Race PArk where the Driftwood meets the Flatrock to form the East Fork of the White River. Along with the entire city of Columbus, Mill Race PArk is worth a look for its architecture and design.
While there observed a very festive red-headed woodpecker hawking flying insects.
After that we drove out through Hope, Indiana to Shelbyville where we bought some produce. Then we went home to chow.
