Saturday afternoon, my sister and I were walking back from Battery Park with three of the grandchildren.
The kids were running ahead on the Dog Free Zone boardwalk.
We bumped into this wedding party taking photos so we doubled back to the concrete walk along the Hudson River where I took a quick picture.
The female attendants had to be freezing.
The Schuylkill River. Philadelphia.
On my way back to Pittsburgh from New York after a nice Thanksgiving holiday with the family.
Here’s a shot taken Monday through a train window- #43 The Pennsylvanian – as we crossed over both the river and the Schuylkill Expressway.
My parents lived in Philadelphia 12 years but I lived there for only one of those years. A flood of nostalgia as the train rolled into Philly.
There are interesting place names (how about Wissahickon?) you don’t find anywhere else in the country. The river and expressway name always was hard for me to spell correctly. It’s that extra “L” in there. Turns out it’s a Dutch word meaning “hidden or skulking creek”
Saturday afternoon. Taken from another Staten Island Ferry.
Last week in Columbus, I sat in the passenger seat with Laura at the wheel. Good thing. Brought that trusty phone up to my eye and I can’t really add him to my People at Work series
but perhaps Animals at Work in the city?
Oh hello there!
There were two messages from my friend Joanne but I was so excited about the beach glass yarn she sent a surprise a gift, I missed the second.
Here’s what she said –
“Where else would the dollar store be the Loonies & Toonies Store? Canada has one dollar coins (Loonies) and two dollar coins (Toonies). No paper ones or twos.
And the puzzle is set up in a gift/coffee shop where guests are invited to sit a while and puzzle.”
-Loved being in the passenger seat tonight while Steve drove home through the rain and wet leaves.
