Sunset Silhouette in Mexico

A family watching the sunset over Cancún in the province of Quinatara Roo, Mexico. Every night is a little different on the blue docks of of the lagoon where people congregate to eat, drink and watch the light show. They are on an overhead walkway and the shot is taken from a bridge below.

It looks like these two are dancing on the bridge of their ship as the sun sets over Cancún in the province of Quinatara Roo, Mexico. Every night is a little different on the blue docks of of the lagoon where people congregate to eat, drink and watch the light show.

Cemetery by The Sea

Across the channel from Cancún is the island of Isla Mujeres. It’s just a short boat ride to see a gem of real Mexico. The beaches are tranquil compared to Cancún and you can rent a golf cart, bike or motorcycle to explore the small island.

If you do go, on the south end of the island is a wonderful cemetery that is so different than American or European cemeteries it is worth the trip. Of course being an island, all the graves are above ground and with vibrant colors and unusual displays. Its worth the trip.

Bird in Hand

Every day at 11:30 The National Aviary has an Eagle Talk. This bird was a rescued bald eagle that fell out of its nest as a baby and has been nursed to a healthy adult at the aviary. There is another docent with a bucket of food to keep the eagle from not flying or attacking the handler. They are birds of prey after all.

The National Aviary is the largest bird zoo in America and a true Pittsburgh treasure. If you plan your visit properly you can see the Eagle Talk and Penguin Feeding.

Regent Square Day Lily #3… Pictures of Lily

We planted a lot of day lilies under the misconception that deer would not eat them. They destroyed the ones in our front garden but relentless application of repellent has saved the beauties in our back garden. The dark purple ones will be next to bloom. I think I will call this one Pictures of Lily. Thank you The Who.

Peter Frampton at The Benedum Center

I have been fortunate to see many great performances in my lifetime. I saw Jimmi Hendrix perform at The Whiskey in Los Angeles, the farewell concert of Buffalo Springfield and Little Feat perform in a 200 seat lecture hall where Lowell George proclaimed, …”you gotta get up before we get down!” However I had never seen Peter Frampton until last night.

In a Rolling Stone interview in February, Frampton, 68, said he had a degenerative muscle disease called inclusion body myositis, also known as I.B.M. The disease causes muscles to weaken over time but generally does not affect life expectancy. He announced what will probably be his last tour and I immediately bought tickets. The concert was of course sold out.

He has been busy recording a lot of new music while he still is able. So we will still have new Peter Frampton music for a few years. He released a new blues album and played some tunes from it last night in the first public performance. It was magnificent show which he ended with the George Harrison tune, “My Guitar.” He got tearful and refuse to say goodbye Pittsburgh, just good night.

Reid Anderson–The Bad Plus in Pittsburgh

Getting ready to see Peter Frampton tonight at the Benedum Center. It has got me to thinking about all the great concerts we have seen since returning to Pittsburgh. Last January we saw The Bad Plus at The August Wilson Center and saw a virtuoso bass performance by Reid Anderson.

Reid Anderson is a bassist and composer from Minnesota. He is best known for his work in The Bad Plus with pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer Dave King. The Bad Plus has been together since 1989.
