What I Did on My Birthday (abridged version)

I'm too tired to write more than captions. Also sunburned. It was a very good day.

Did you know that from the Terminal Tower Observation Deck, you can see the Perry plant in the distance?

It all looks like a miniature toy set.

Also there are vast tracts of wasteland I knew nothing about? But they look pretty from up far.

The Tall Ships festival had insane lines to get on the boats. It was like waiting for a Cedar Point ride.

And they frown upon you climbing on the rigging.

After being so close to the water, we couldn't take it anymore. We had to be in the water.

I was very rude to those of my friends who would not come in the water, and spent most of my time being yelled at by lifeguards to come closer to shore.

All I wanted to do was take my camera with me as far as I could into the water and take pictures from there. But I rightly decided I was too fucked up to be trying that.

But after those pesky lifeguards leave, you can swim out as far as you want and stay there floating while the sun goes down, until you are in complete darkness.

More photos here.


  1. Glad you had a good time..sorry your crispy!

  2. That first photo with Key Tower in it looks so clear that I thought for a moment that it was actually a computer-generated model.

  3. Thanks Donda!

    Chris - I KNOW. Buddy was saying the same thing yesterday while we were looking them over. It's like a fucking Sims graphic.

  4. can't wait to make it over to the observation deck. Really wanted to go on Saturday for your birthday but alas we had to go celebrate someone's nuptials.

    how can they frown upon climbing the rigging on your birthday?

    run them through next time.

  5. Boo. I'm having image issues. Did I break your site?

    Happy Birthday!

  6. Ells - No, not as far as I can see. But just so you know, the fine for breaking my site is 50 kittens.

  7. Happy birthday!! Looks like it was fab. :)

  8. Happy Belated Birthday, Bridget! Sorry I missed it.

  9. Looks like a great day! Happy belated:)
