Welcome to Week #2.
We have been having so much fun (and the internet service so poor) that we have been neglecting our blog postings. Although in certain Ashland circles, our blog has taken on critical acclaim of epic proportions, we remain cautious and (somewhat) selective in our photographic choices. Certain members of the team are now taking photos on their own in the hope of achieving Blog Status. We will post them for your viewing as soon as we have access to them. In the meantime…
Friday, August 3 – no theatre. Serious family hanging out time.
Saturday, August 4 – no theatre. Shopping. Hanging out with the kids. Fabulous fish tacos by the incredible Chef Jacqui. And we are joined late in the evening by the Ohio delegation, our niece Sandi Chervenak and her family. (More of the Chervenaks in photos and later posts.)
Sunday, August 5 – we are joined by Bob’s niece, Andrea Swift. She drove down from her home in Bend to see what we were up to and to join our visit to the Yogurt Hut. Ah, the Yogurt Hut. One of those fix-it-the-way-you-want-it and then pay-by-the-pound places. More toppings than a haberdashery and a variety of frozen yogurt flavors. And a second floor with sofas and air-hockey. Wow. Finale of the day was a big family photo on the steps of Carpenter Hall on the bricks at OSF.
Monday, August 6 – dark day in the theatre. (Dark day meaning no shows and therefore a day off for our OSF family). A grand backstage tour for the group, conducted by SoundGuy and LightingGuy. (pictures to appear in a future post.) And sadly, Liz returns to New York in the early morning hours and Andrea departs for Bend in the evening.
Tuesday, August 7 – on today’s docket – chocolate, wine tastings, blue cheese, and As You Like It on the outdoor stage for the Chevenaks.
Hope we can get on the internet long enough to upload this post. Stay tuned. We have rounded the halfway point and are bringing our visit to a close, but there is still much to see and do.
PS: We seem to be having difficulty uploading images to this blog post. Check back later for the latest images!
