Pat and Chris are great, and I consider myself lucky to have such great guys as my cousins.
What a museum, even if you are not a big baseball fan. The exhibits are beautifully set up, informative, and kid friendly.And there is the Hall of Fame. The noise level in the Hall of Fame is next to nothing. This is the place of memories, where the ballplayers of our youth are honored.
We stayed at the Tunnicliff Inn, established in 1802.
We ended up day 3 at Cousin Pat's house for a big family barbeque where I got to meettheir kids. What a wonderful family!!!
Sunday, Day 4: Off to NYC to see the city and go to a Broadway Show.
We went to Battery Park to see Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty (she's beautiful).
Then to Ground Zero and Trinity Church.
Ground Zero is a humbling experience. I couldn't take a picture, it didn't seem appropriate. There are so many souls and memories in this huge hole in the ground. We did go to Trinity Church, and could feel the presence of God in a time of need.
This morning we are off to brunch with my Cousin Sam and her family.
The picture of my foot was an exercise in using the close up shots.
I had to get this shot of Louie sunbathing while panting his little head off.
The weekend following our trip to Edgar's Acres, we ladies had our Summer Solstice weekend. It was a blast as always, eating, drinking and knitting until 11:00 p.m when it finally started getting dark.
A Dropped Stitch in Sequim had a sock yarn dying party which was a kick. Nora had gone ahead and knit the fabric in white yarn so we would tie to our heart's desire, and then knit into a pair of socks. Since Leslie doesn't knit, she was the official photographer.
The yarn is waiting at home for me to knit up into a pair of socks this winter.
We also placed St. Francis in the Friendship Garden at Edgar's Place, and he is very happy there.
St. Francis belonged to Susan's mother. When her mother passed, Susan brought St. Francis back with her to be placed in the Garden to finish out his life. So far none of the dogs have peed on him, and none of the birds have pooed on him. He looks very special in the garden and we feel blessed to have him in at Edgar's Acres.
Speaking of Edgar. We have discovered he is a convertible dog. He hates riding in cars unless he is tucked into his crate. Unless ...He's riding in the backseat of Cynthia's convertible. He loves it. The look says it all.
He was born to ride with his ears in the wind.
Now, our trip. We have been planning this trip for two years now. I'll give more details later, but so far we have traveled to New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania and leave tomorrow morning for Washington DC.
Off to get some sleep before heading off to DC.
