Spring Travels

It's time to catch up on recent travel.  May and June were full of excitement as Schlepp and his human bounced from coast to coast.  


A conference on crowdsourcing took Karl to the Bay Area in early May.  The view out the Hotel Shattuck window at night looked into the Berkeley Library. 

Here's the venue with panel discussion members in the center and the rest of us around the periphery of the penthouse of the Chase Bank Building.  

The morning before departure, we took a walk and saw this street art.  Google Glass was perfect for this kind of photography.  

 In the Oakland airport, we had a moment for a light snack and a glass of California wine. 


The Institute of Nuclear Material Management regional meeting in Oregon was the draw for us later in May.  Caro came along and Goen took the train down from Seattle. On the Sunday before the conference, we visited the Japanese Garden, which was stunning with it's maples and Rhododendrons. 

Even the Zen rock garden was outstanding.  

At the conference, we discovered that there was another Google Glass explorer.  She was a professor from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. 

During lunch one day we went out to see the dragon boats that race up and down the river every evening.  Very colorful.  


Nephew Peter graduated from Dartmouth in June.  Karl and I were the representatives from NM.  Here's Peter and the rest of the Vermont gang up in the Physics Building. 

It turned into a mini-family reunion with Hank and Norma plus Marcia's sister all on hand.  

Here's David and Peter working on up-side-down milk drinking, a valuble post-graduation skill.  :-)
