Weekend Snapshots 38

Sunday

My favorite part of the museum…

We discovered a Korean restaurant in Richmond. It wasn’t much to look at from the outside…

…but the food was great!

There was a little grocery store attached to the restaurant, where we bought some kimchee to take home.

Grounds

It was a gorgeous morning on Thursday…I hated to go inside.

At lunch time I took a walk around Grounds, (not “campus”!) to check up on the restoration work going on at the Rotunda. The Rotunda is Thomas Jefferson’s temple of learning, the crowning glory of his “Academical Village,” Enlightenment ideals realized in stone.

A short walk away from the bustling construction site is another busy worksite. The lavender hedges in front of Alderman Library are in full bloom and abuzz with big fat bees:

At the end of the day I met up with this kid, who actually consented to take a photo with his embarrassing mother to commemorate these days of commuting together to work/school…

I’d call that a pretty good day.

Now on to the weekend!
