Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 246: Calypso Tumblers

Mr. E and I had planned to go to one of the museums around the border of Jackson Square on Friday morning, but it was still closed for the Thanksgiving holiday.  So instead, we headed towards the Riverwalk, where we had noticed a large crowd gathered on the stairs and had heard lots of cheering and noise. We discovered the reason for all of the excitement -- some amazing acrobatic street performers, the Calypso Tumblers.

Check out some great photos of these talented guys. We saw one of them doing these handstand push-ups on the stair railing:

We also caught all of the final bit, which was a running front flip over 6 people -- incredible!  The entire troupe was very entertaining, and the fact that their name is reminiscent of our sweet black and white kitty, Calypso, just endeared them to me even more.
