No Particular Place to Go – On the Road in Florida

Tooling around Florida after the wedding, (see previous post here) the two of us would spend some time on St. Petersburg Beach…

DSC_0547 - Version 6Our son and Grandson flew in for the wedding and would spend the next day with us afterward. Here, the art of “catching” is demonstrated… in this case, either a small seagull or a tennis ball!

Then, visiting friends, and eating out on Long Boat Key, and Punta Gorda…

And then, two nights inside Disney World, doing the entire day in between within Epcot, each of us walking about 22,000 steps (about 10 miles – 16 km!)

The event was awesome. The beautiful blessed couple shined in the late afternoon sun, and the people cheered and partied into the night.

Golfing in Snow – at Zero (F.) Degrees!

25 years ago this week, in 1993, we came across this guy at the Sagamore Resort above Lake George, New York. We were sledding and cross-country skiing (or at least trying,) and HE….was apparently frozen stiff!

The wind-chill temperature on the mountain above Lake George was 0 (F,) (-18C.)!

As always, click on the image for a closer look and if you see his golf ball, contact The Samaore Resort, Bolton Landing, N.Y.                Comments are encouraged…

6:45 AM: Griffith Park, LA., The Observatory and the Moon

 

Continuing a theme from my last post, once again we have the last quarter moon hanging above a fairly well known landmark –  the Griffith Observatory and Science Center overlooking Los Angeles. It was day two of a family vacation with a somewhat newer SLR film camera, early in the morning of November 11th, 1987.
