Kayaks and Two Old Men

August 4, 2017

My friend Don B and I had never been kayaking prior to our ride this week so at almost 80 I decided to give it a whirl. It was fun, very relaxing and not expensive. They rented for only $ 10/hour at Creve Coeur Park near my home. I’m the handsome Dude holding the paddle vertical:

Bootlegger’s Run

June 30, 2014

GORC has built a trail in upper Creve Coeur. It is for walking and cycling. If you walk it be aware of the cyclists because they can move pretty fast on the down-hills. To find it check out the verbal description below and take a look at the below picture showing my white Prius with a yellow circle around it. The trail starts just to right of where my car is sitting and note the end of the tennis courts on the right.

Directions

Take I-270 to the Dorsett Road exit, and head west on Dorsett Road. Turn Right into the Park on Streetcar Drive, and then continue down the road into the park. Look for a lighted softball field on the right, followed by tennis courts and then a large gravel parking lot – turn right into this lot. Look for an obvious opening in the woods along the tree-line near the back left-side of the tennis courts. Head into the woods and look for the trail on your left. If you get to a large, flat, “T” intersection, you’ve gone about 20 feet too far.

Mandolin by the lake

August 14, 2013

Dave was playing his mandolin when I rode my trike up to Sailboat Cove Shelter at Creve Coeur Lake. He has only been playing the mandolin two years but has played a guitar for several yeas. I think he does a great job on the mandolin. See what you think:
