Saturday night we picked up Cari at Nationale, where she's having her show.
I love this sign from the store next door.
Cari was wrapping up the day, and getting ready to leave for Amsterdam on Sunday. So, she asked if we would like to go and see the Swifts. Mark and I thought it was a rock band, but it was really some birds that while migrating roost in a chimney in a local school.
I'd heard of it before, but I'd never been.

I followed as Cari and Mark led the way.
There were SO many people there, but we still managed to get a good view of the chimney. You can't believe how many birds were there! And there's a hawk that shows up every night, looking for 'dinner', and the crowd cheers as he swoops and dives.
So glad we got to spend this evening with our best girl.
On the walk back to the car we saw this 'knit bomb' on a stop sign. So clever!
