Highlights of July 2004

Click here to see what we were reading in July.


Over the July 4th weekend, we went to Cincinnati, Ohio to vist Jon's sister Sara and our brother in law, Rusty. We started off with an aerial view of Cincinnati in a rented C-182 from the Blue Ash airport - about 2 miles from Sara and Rusty's house. Jon got to fly in Ohio summer haze.

After our flight, we went down to Newport for dinner. A biker festival just happened to be going on on the Newport waterfront. We fit right in.

Deborah and Lee's Excellent Aerial Adventure

In mid-July Jon took Deborah and Lee on a bay tour. It was a nice summer evening, with ocean fog drifting in over the city.

Mount Tamelpias and the Coast Trail

On July 24th, we hiked one of our favorite hikes - the Coast Trail at Mt. Tamelpias. This one one of our favorite hikes because of the spectacular views, varied terrain and vegetation. This time, even though it was late July, we were in coastal fog most of the trip. It made for a very mystical kind of setting. We missed the views but enjoyed the hike anyway.

Mondavi Jazz Concert

On July 31st, the last day of the month, we went to The Mondavi Winery to see Dave Brubeck at a benefit jazz festival. We had a picnic and watched the concert. It got pretty chilly when the sun went down.
