Memorial Day Weekend 2006

Memorial Day Weekend was warm and relaxing. Amy and I met up with my brother Francis for a few hours on Monday, as he was visiting high school buddies. We tried some of the dimsum at NuBao Cafe in South Street Seaport, and paid $3 each to tour the historic ships docked there — the Peking and the Ambrose. You certainly get your money’s worth with those ships! Here’s Francis aboard the Ambrose, with Brooklyn and various tourist boats behind him:


Through the course of the long weekend, we also hung one of Amy’s latest paintings on the dining room wall (laser levels are fun), watched X-Men: The Last Stand with Amy’s brother Bob, Amy sketched me as I dozed on the couch to the tune of Bach’s Coffee Cantata, and we listened to PastaKeith finish up his Da Vinci Code sermon series. Take a look at Amy’s diploma project painting, newly hung:


‘Twas a good long weekend to cap off a busy, busy, busy month, and I look forward to the comparatively restful workaday grind.
