Back to Dayton

A security guard patrols the parking lot on a segway at the new mall, The Greene, in Beavercreek, a suburb of Dayton, OH.

This morning was cooler than it has been but it was very bright and sunny and 41F (5C). I took the same road south from the campground as I did yesterday.

After breakfast and getting ready we headed back to Dayton where Gordon had made arrangements to meet Mel and Janice (our friends who visited us in Ottawa last summer) and some folks that used to work with Mel that Gordon knew of or had met. We met at The Cheesecake Factory at a new mall called The Greene in Beavercreek. It was great to see Mel and Janice again. Both have had serious health problems since we last saw them but they both looked well today. We had an excellent lunch (I had the best shepherd’s pie I’ve ever had) and met the other people (10 in all counting us).

We had left Columbus early so took a detour to Gordon’s boyhood home area in New Carlisle. We arrived at the mall early and walked around. It’s one of the new concept malls that are all outside. This one is built in streets and even has a town square. My preference, however, is for indoor malls but this one was interesting anyway.

After lunch broke up around 3:30 p.m. we headed back to Columbus to read and nap! Today was a beautiful day and we hit a high of 72F (22C).
