I had supper at the Broadmoor Bistro in Overland Park, Kansas, which is
part of the Shawnee Mission School District. The food is prepared and served
by high students.
until this school year, the student restaurant was at the Broadmoor Technical
School and we have had a review of the restaurant at that location for
many year. The restaurant moved to a new location at the Center for Academic
Achievement, over the summer. The feel of the new dinning room is both
more contemporary and more institutional. I referred the old location.
won't go into the details of the meal until the restaurant's review is
updated, but will mention that the pace was very slow. The meal took and
hour and 40 minutes.

Linda and I had lunch at Big
T's Bar-B-Q in Kansas City, Missouri. It had been two years since the
last time we dined there and it is time to update its review. While I like
the food at Big T's, it has the disadvantage of being on the far side of
the metropolitan area and near two other restaurants which I enjoy even
more: LC's BBQ and the Peach
Tree Buffet. The food was very similar to our last visit, so the main changes
needed will be to the menu listing.
the afternoon I drove to Wyandotte County Lake in Kansas City, Kansas to
photograph a small waterfall which we learned about last spring. The falls
is on a creek feeding into the lake, near a bridle trail. I walked back
to the falls using the only directions which I had, which sent me along
the trail from the norse trailer parking lot. That trail cross estwo small
creeks, using stepping stones and probably would not appeal to hikers when
there is much more water. I met only two riders on the trail
relatively little water was going over the falls, it was still pretty and
sounded cheery. I found an easier way out, walking near the creek going
toward the lake.
followed up with a circle drive of the 800 acre lake. The neatest thing
which I fond was the Mr. & Mrs. F.L. Schlagle Library, which is an
"Environmental Learning Center," on a point overlooking the lake.
