On July 30, 2003 Rex and Adrian traveled to Westport, New York to visit Rusty.

Rusty was appearing as "Bartley" in the play "The Cripple of Inishmaan" at the Depot Theatre in Westport.

Westport is in upstate New York, about 2 hours north of Albany. It is a very small village on the shores of Lake Champlain.

Shown below is a photo record of our visit.
