First of all you'll have to excuse the quality of the photos here. Unlike SOME people, I do not have a fancy camera. But we'll make do, right?
Pam and I stayed outside of downtown Pittsburgh...about a half hour away. Neither one of us had ever been here before and we were both pleasantly surprised. Somehow I'd imagined a grimy old industrial city...if it's there, we sure didn't see it. Coming into the city from the airport we drove thru lots of lush, green open space. As soon as you get thru the tunnel, you're in a different world--and it really is quite lovely.
Bridges everywhere...and the water was so sparkly and smooth.
I love it when you can find design inspiration while sitting in a car.
Heading back to the hotel is where I got my biggest shock...can you believe this???
