Previously we went for a walk along the river and into the main botanical garden. It is HUGE! We got there about 30 minutes before it "closed" which actually just means the visitor center is closed and you can still wander around. Stuff is just starting to bud out with a few things in bloom. The wisteria around town is starting to bloom and is going to be really beautiful in a week or so and it smells heavenly. Today we think we are going to tackle the main market in city center.
Trox has been playing with how to add google earth stuff here to the blog and hopefully will get that running soon. It is supposed to be much warmer this weekend (in the 70s) and we are hoping to take in an RV show.
