From Philly, I flew on to Indianapolis for the National Science Teachers annual convention. I’ve never been to Indianapolis before, and until today, I didn’t have much of a chance to explore. I think every chain restaurant in America has a restaurant here. I had some good steak and some mediocre food, but all in all, it was a good trip. After an awesome breakfast at Patachou I set out to explore the city with Flat Kendall in tow.
It was a bit rainy this morning with a surprise lightning storm and hail. One of the things I miss living in the Pacific Northwest is that we don’t get much thunder and lightning. I just hope I don’t get to see a tornado here.
We walked up to the Civil War Memorial near the center of town.
From there we walked up to Mass Ave. My coworkers told me that the oldest shoe store in America was located there, so I just had to see for myself. There’s some fun shopping up there, but most things were closed on Sunday. There are also a lot of restaurants there.
One place that was open was the Three Dog Bakery, a bakery for dogs! I’ve never seen such a great selection of dog treats. They have loose treats, bagged treats, dog food, and special treats in the case.
We had to go in!
I picked up some wheat-free sweet potato treats for Kendall. I can’t wait to get home to give them to her.
