In the midst of my week in the Adirondacks, I ducked down to Saratoga for a great day of racing on Jim Dandy Day. I saw a lot of great horses, had a great time with Mark and Melody, and even got to see Stay Thirsty win the Jim Dandy on his way to the Travers Stakes 4 weeks later. Here’s a few photos on the day, more photos are available on my flickr gallery page.
I already can’t wait to get back to Saratoga. My full 2011 Saratoga gallery is available on my flickr page.
We had a really busy July, and on Saturday the 16th we braved 90 degree heat to attend the Rochester ESL Airshow. The Blue Angels were in town and we were both really excited to see them and the rest of the planes. We got to see a lot of cool planes, talk to a lot of neat pilots, and walk through a lot of large transport planes. You can view the full gallery on my flickr page, and a sample of some of the photos here:
This year’s air show was really neat, and I hope to go back again next year. View all the photos I took on the day in my flickr gallery.
After rekindling our interest in racing, this year Dad and I decided to head out to Limerock Park in Connecticut to take in the American Le Mans Series Racing. It didn’t take us too long to figure out the way the camping worked. We even got some rain, even though I didn’t bring any rain gear. The racing was great, and its a really neat track. We got to see a lot of different types of cars racing, and the access to the track and pit area can’t be beat! Its practically wide open. We camped at the track for 3 days, and had a great time. Here’s a few photos from the weekend (close to 1,000 photos taken). View the rest of them in my flickr gallery.
