It was a chilly and windy ride into the city for Yoga.  The yoga leader decided to do core work this evening.  It hurt soooo good.

Although the ride to the city was chilly, the ride home was very cool.  A full moon, clear sky and the wind at my back made the ride home a joy.  I tried taking a few shots of church steeples with the full moon and sky as a backdrop but I could not hold still enough to take a night shot.  I only got one. One of the others is the old Vocational school built with the design of a manufacturing mill.  They certainly had different ideas about education back then.

The SJO, started in 2009 by trumpeter Bob Williamson and drummer Neil Sylvia, is a traditional 17-member jazz band with trumpets, trombones, saxophones, and a rhythm section.
