oyster trio

It was a rainy night in Brooklyn.
We ate at the Blue Star (but oh my, Stella Blue is a terrible song).
In addition to flash-fried dragonfish, I had three oysters.
Blue Star doesn't yet accept credit cards, so Val and I had to find an ATM.
Across the street, many people were waiting in line to see Fahrenheit 9-11.

No pictures of the reading, sorry. But on the way home, we visited Manitoga, the home of industrial designer Russel Wright - no relation to Frank Lloyd, but comparisons of his home, Dragon Rock, to Fallingwater, were unavoidable. Perhaps you'll recognize some of Russel Wright's designs.

The house is nestled into the woods, almost upon a waterfall, feeding an abandoned quarry.

The house isn't as showy as Fallingwater, but it's more organically part of the environment. However, the environment, apparently, was carefully restored and stage-managed, including the re-placement of boulders and the building of the waterfall. Very Japanese.

The interior echoes the exterior [1, 2].
The kitchen is low-ceilinged and dark, but very nice.
There were lots of nice plants, some of which matched my shoes.
Many of us have curly, brown hair.
Anna and Bess took a hike with their grandmother while we toured the house.
Afterward, we ate at a French restaurant in Cold Spring.
