Tonight Kish and Richard and I had dinner at The Pearl, made a visit to Whit’s Frozen Custard, and then took a jaunt around the Short North. When I returned to my car at the corner of Park and West Russell Street, across from Goodale Park, I was treated to a spread of red flowers, glowing crimson and looking deep and velvety in the approaching twilight. It’s just one of many beautiful garden areas you find all around Goodale Park.
This afternoon Kish and I decided to drive over to Granville, Ohio — the home of Denison University and one of many scenic and interesting Ohio college towns. Granville is about 20 miles due east of New Albany.
We walked around the college grounds and the picturesque main street, but the heat and lack of breeze — even on Denison’s hilltop campus — was too much for us. So, we retreated to Brew’s Cafe for a bite to eat, then topped things off with some Almond Joy cones from Whit’s Frozen Custard. It was a spectacularly delicious way to cool off.
The little trip also allowed me to take my first photo with the new camera — of the Swasey Chapel on the Denison campus.
