Brussels




 I landed in Brussels on July 22. While I've been at the airport and the train station (and even drove from the airport to Paris once) this was the first time I've been here to really see the city since my trip in junior high school.

I landed and took the train into the city and was luckily able to check into my hotel right away, staying in the European Quarter of Brussels at the Thon (I decided to go ahead and get some of the touristy things out of the way, so I headed to the Manneken Pis, which is one of the things I clearly remembered from junior high. The statue of the little boy urinating was put in place around 1618.

Of course, while there, I had to have a Belgian Waffle at one of the nearby stands. I had strawberries and whipped cream on mine.


On the way to get my waffle on, I passed through the Grand Place and the Brussels Town Hall. The oldest parts of it have been around since the early 1400s.



The main reason I was in town, however, was to do some trails with my international running club. About 3,000 people came from all over the world to be a part of this incredible weekend.

Hurrican Arthur - Carolina Beach, NC

So there was that time we stayed at Carolina Beach during Hurricane Arthur.

Glad you could join the party, Arthur


It was a great family week at the beach -- my first time at Carolina beach. We were safe as the storm skirted by.

Good times


Fun on the 4th!
