Block party, Dancing Goats, and a lost dog.

Today, Mike, Ron Hoffman, and I attended Delta's annual Block Party at their World Headquarters in Atlanta, GA. Thousands turned out to celebrate. It was good to see my friend of 40 years Nick Beatty in attendance!!  We enjoyed all the free food and beer that we could handle. 

Ron enjoyed a chair massage. 

Afterwards, we enjoyed a walk through Old Fourth Ward Park. It is a new park near the Ponce City Market. It is a live, work, play redevelopment of an old Sears & Roebuck retail store and warehouse. At the end of our walk we stopped to enjoy beverages at Dancing Goats Coffee. I enjoyed sitting in the warm sun and rocking in a chair on the outside patio. 

When we returned to Mark's to shower before dinner we were greeted by the welcoming committee. 

For dinner, we joined our friends Phil and Ronnie at Varuni Napoli, a new pizza joint that has opened on Monroe Drive, just down from the house where we lived before moving to Ecuador. I recommend that all of my Atlanta friends give it a try. We had delicious pizza and pasta!

Speaking of Phil ... he rescued a lost dog on Peachtree Street yesterday and called the number on the dog's tag. I am happy to report that EO has been reunited with her owners. 

Mike and I got to spend a little time with sweet EO too!!

Tomorrow morning we travel to Daytona Beach, FL.
