First stop today was IKEA in Columbus, OH. Shopping for me, impatience for John. But we both had a decent and very inexpensive lunch.
1. John wanted to take a nap.
2. It was close to the hotel.
3. He wasn’t impressed with my reason for going.
Turns out it is a modern but beautiful cemetery.
After nap time, we went to Woodland Cemetery, a huge old and extremely beautiful cemetery that has some spectacular views of Dayton. There are a lot of famous and historical people buried there, so here are a few:
Paul Laurence Dunbar was the first renown black poet in the US.
Wilbur and Orville Wright During the Civil War. Served in Congress. Shot himself during a trial demonstration.
A few other pics from the cemetery
Then, we attended the Dayton Dragon’s low A baseball game. Stadium is very nice for a low A, and the crowds are extremely loyal. It was fun. With a home run, the dragons eyes above the big screen turn red and smoke bellows our of their nostrils.
