Cleveland: Part 1

This past weekend, my father and I traveled to Cleveland to see the sights.  Every summer since I graduated from high school we've gone on a father-daughter trip, and this was the sixth one! So far we've been to Toronto three times, Washington D. C. twice, and now Cleveland.  We stayed at a hotel right in the middle of everything downtown, which was so much fun because we were able to walk to almost everything!  

Our first evening there, we caught the second half of an Indians game and had dinner at a little Italian restaurant down the street from the hotel.  We could've walked to the game, but instead we rode in one of those little bicycle-powered carts, and the man that drove us recommended this great little diner to us that we got lunch in the next day.

These pictures are all from our second day there.  The two photos directly above are from the set of The Avengers, which was filming down the street from us.  The pictures below were all taken on East 4th Street, which was a very lovely street complete with twinkle lights strung from the roofs.  More photos to come!

  3. ha! before i read the text, i was like "jeez what kind of accident just happended?!" anyway, glad to see it was just a movie. :0 nice that you and your pops get to hand out for the weekend-- loving the length of your hair, btw.

    p.s. i was totally the culprit for the graininess i was seeing. for some reason if i upload straight to blogger, my images turn out grainy/noisy. if i upload to flickr then paste the code, they turn out fine. i figured this all out last night. i guess i'm not going to fire my photographer after all!

  4. How fun to have father-daughter trips! I got to do that once with my dad in Atlanta (he's so much more relaxed about everything than my mom, that it makes for a huge change of pace!).
    You saw a set of the Avengers? Oh my!! If I was there, you wouldn't get me to leave without a glimpse of one of the actors (preferably in costume!).

  5. I was the same as Maria, totally thought there'd been some kind of natural disaster going down!
    How odd to see something like that on the street!
    I love that you're a librarian, I'm studying LIS at the moment!

  6. Oh I'm so glad nothing dangerous happened- that its a movie set haha! You look adorable and it looks like you had a lot of fun!

  7. Nice pics! and nice outfit!


  8. Haha, I like how you put those crazy Avengers photos up before the explanation. I was also thinking, "WHAT? What is this??" East 4th Street looks really cute! I'm looking forward to seeing more of Cleveland =)

  9. wow! the place looks lovely! U just put Cleveland on my list of to-gos!
