Omaha

During this past week Dave and I were once again in OMER-HA for work.   One evening we ventured out to a delightful attraction next to downtown and the Old Market area called the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge.  This bridge is a 3000 foot bicycling and walking bridge that crosses the Missouri River between Council Bluffs, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska.  I did not walk all the way to the Iowa side, but did walk most of the way, something I would not have been able to do pre-new hips.

Although the skies were threatening rain and there was lightening in the distance, several people were strolling along taking in the scenery. It was a little unnerving as you stood high above the Missouri river and felt the bridge swaying with the wind.  However, the views were great and the picture taking opportunities were numerous.

After we left the bridge, we drove through downtown passing the new Ameritrade stadium.

Then we passed the Qwest center  (I think it is called the CenturyLink Center now) where Dave and I saw a great Michael Buble concert last year.

Then we drove through the Old Market area and reminisced over time spent being urban dwellers in the fall of 2009 when we lived in the Old Market lofts and shopped for groceries at Cubbys.

Although it was fun to visit the urban lifestyle for three months, Dave and I decided we prefer suburbia with it’s Hy-Vee’s, garages for your cars and green grass.  I guess we have turned into old people!  Talk with you all soon!

  1. I hate to say it, but I kind of miss the Old Market area and that apartment in Omaha!
