It’s Water Under the Bridge

It’s water under the bridge (s), the water being the Monongahela River. I lost count of the number of bridges we sailed under.

Sunday night.

Rivers of Steel Photo Cruise on the Mon. During the 2 1/2 hour Riverboat Cruise we had rain, clouds, thunder, lightning )where we had to go inside the boat) and then a sliver of sun briefly, ending on clear skies.

Grateful for Birthdays

Grateful for birthdays. It was a happy but quiet celebration. Glad my sister is here. More family coming in soon. It was a relaxing day.

Steve, Mary and I took a walk around the Highland Park Reservoir after supper. We got drenched when a sudden thunderstorm appeared just after I took these photos of the peaceful water.

Our power has been out a few hours now. Heard a tree is down on Highland Avenue. Wires down. Hope it can be fixed soon.

The waterfalls and pools are everywhere you look.  We took the boardwalk you see from the aerial view photo, a bus on winding roads with no guard rail through the forests and a boat ride on a glacial lake.  Good photos for water and earth, but no fire.
