I really like riding the train, so I can't wait for my next trip.

As for the pools, my wife went nuts for them, but I think I'd like to have a grounds keeper first.

Yah. I noticed the grounds for those pools were not exactly tiny backyards that are taken care of on weekend weedings.

The train station is in the International District -- why not just go there on the way to dinner?

My husband really wants to have a Sacred Harp sing there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_Harp

The Sacred Harp thing would be awesome.

As for visiting, we're sorta pinching our pennies here.
