Jack Graduates Cum Laude from NYU

1 Comment

NY is always a blast to visit, but this trip was the most special NY run ever!  We are proud of our #1 son.

It was a super hot day to be in the direct sun at Yankee Stadium.  Fortunately, w all survived.



A second ceremony for the College of Arts and Sciences was held at Radio City the next day.



Sailing in New York City

Sailing was just what the doctor ordered on a sweltering day in the city (90 degrees in mid May!). Gorgeous and fun. Amy captained the boat under sail as we cruised up the Hudson.


Jack took the helm at the top of the ride.











Captain Barley at the helm.





No fun was had!  No fun at all.

Here’s looking at you Robyn.


Yes, you.


Psychedelically speaking, that is.



The show was held in Annapolis at the Ram’s Head with a capacity crowd on a Saturday afternoon. The time feel in the venue is set to “Vegas.” Could be most anytime but definitely night time, even at 1:00pm. The food does not suck even though the ditzy waitresses are way too loud.

Robyn played a handful of the songs on the great new self-titled record. Buy it for yourself.





And some old favorites that the crowd adored.

By far the most amusing and entertaining part of the show was the “free part,” that being the part with the banter. We had to pay for the music part. Worth every post-Brexit penny.




Did I already say Robyn played some of the songs on the great new self-titled record? Well he did.


Then there was this.

Catch the tour if you can.

Hiking Sgurr an Airgid


Sometimes when you are in Scotland you need to hike up 2700 feet to see what you can see.

And here is how you get there.

2700 feet from sea level in 5 hours. Shew.

For more about our trip to Scotland, see the pictures from our visit to the ancestral castle Eilean Donan. And if you stay in Kintail, stay at the Kintail Lodge.
