and the driver's side window.
We took our son, aka Kid Two, back to school at the University of Hartford yesterday. It was a quick week off for spring break..I hope he got enough rest (and food!)
Kid One was already there because she had had a three-day vacation traveling with the pep band and women's basketball team to North Carolina. She had a lot of fun with her friends, and enjoyed touring the campuses of Duke and University of North Carolina.
Unfortunately our team lost to Louisiana State University, but the women did a great job this season that qualified them to play in the tournament.
Regular readers know I take photos as Ralph drives, and yesterday afternoon was no exception.
There was an emergency of some sort that forced us to take a short detour, and I snapped three photos of sights I wouldn't have seen if not for the detour.
City scene ~ not sure what that building is in the background.
We traveled down Farmington Avenue and I was lucky to catch a photo of part of the stately Mark Twain House through the driver's side window as we passed by. It's a beautiful mansion. Twain lived there from 1874 to 1891. I visited twice on field trips when I was a kid and remember being impressed. Kid One and I plan to visit there someday.
I spotted this interesting-looking tree trunk as we were stopped at a light. Do you know what kind of tree it is? I do - "old."
Hope everyone has a great Monday.
