my life in pictures and words

melissa and….

My friend, Melissa, came to visit during the week of Thanksgiving since Paul wasn’t home. We had a great time. We went down to Cincinnati and walked around the city for a bit. Then we just hung around Dayton the rest of the week. Here are some photos of our adventures. But mostly they’re pictures of Melissa at different restaurants because that’s pretty much the only time i took pictures. Hence the title for this post.

The first stop from the airport was not my house, but Graeters ice cream.

We woke up early Saturday morning to get some breakfast at the second street market in downtown dayton. We have here a breakfast pie that consists of egg, potatoes, sausage, cheese, and bacon. The other “pie” is an apple popover. They both were so delicious i would go again.

the next five photos are from our queen city underground tour.

this was a teeny tiny staircase that led from the basement down to an underground wine cellar.

i thought this was pretty neat to have a net around the fountain so the leaves didn’t get clog the drains.

on the way back from the church we saw these beautiful fall colors.  melissa’s camera’s battery died so she made me take these photos for her.  we loved how the blue on the van contrasted with the oranges and yellows and greens of the tree.

it was about lunch time and we were a bit hungry so we stopped in this pizza joint and tried their whole wheat pizza.  it was not good.  =

before heading home we walked around the area a bit and saw this beautiful yard in front of this beautifully built building.  melissa thought it was  a church but it really is just the cincinnati music hall.

after i took the shot with melissa, i really liked how vibrant the colors were so i took another one.

along the way back to the car, melissa wanted to stop in this bar and see what they offered.  i got some tea with bread, oil and vinegar.  melissa got this white wine trio.
