For the talk on culinary herbs I gave the other evening, I served watermelon salad with feta and mint. With the leftover rind, I made watermelon rind pickles and canned them 🍉 I used my Instant Pot multicooker on the steam setting to sterilize the jars. Worked great.

The CLE

We spent a little time this evening driving around downtown Cleveland. Stopped along the dock area at the Port of Cleveland so we could watch Lake Erie swallow up the sun. This might be my favorite shot. Sorry you can't here the fun being had by the people on the boat - The Goodtime III. We could hear them all the way on the shore. Party time!

Thanks, Kayelle. I'm sure the sights I see are just as pretty as when we lived here, but they seem to have taken on an extra special quality now that we only visit.

As mentioned elsewhere, we went to a little speakeasy tonight. Just a small place, with a bar that seats about a dozen, a couple of 2-person booths plus a four-person one, and a small seating area of a couch and two easy chairs, which is where we were relaxing. Anyway, in order to enter the bar, you had to know which item from those displayed in the entry was the magic one that opened the door! Since I described the inside, you know we made it in.

Not a very good image (Hynde is constantly moving, so every pic was fuzzy), but in the spirit of the "Photo, or it didn't happen" saying, here is proof that we got to see rocker Chrissie Hynde and professional photograper Jill Furmanovsky:

I'm enjoying the pics of your trips, CG. Wow...that sunset one is amazing. I don't know many songs from The Pretenders, but I love "I'll Stand By You"...that one has meaning to me from a couple of decades ago and still makes me teary eyed when I hear it. So glad to hear you, Himself, and family are having a great time.

Thanks, Cheryl. Sunsets by lakes are extra-pretty - guess it's the reflection. I've been seeing a lot of clouds while we're here, too. Lots more and bigger/different shapes than we see in MA. It seems the choppy terrain and the mountains to the NW of us break up the cloud formations so we don't get the fun ones much. Thought I'd toss another couple of photos your way. The Akron library building is made from sheet metal. Large, diamond-shaped panels. While taking a photo of the texture, my two guys decided to add a different texture as a diversion.

Beautiful! Feel free to toss any of those thunderstorms up here, they all seem to pass over us and hit Nebraska.
