Last Day of Vacation…

…Lindee & the girls headed home, & Jeff & I just spent a low key day at the resort and in the area right around there, resting up some for the drive home the next day. We played goofy golf there at the resort, & Jeff had me take this picture of him looking dejected […]

Grand Central State

The girls had seen and heard about Grand Central Station in some TV show that they watch, so we rode the subway there on our last morning in NYC. It is majestic – and we walked outside to get a picture of the gorgeous old architecture. I had learned the last time that I was […]

Thursday afternoon, NYC

Our final stop of the day Thursday was at Strawberry Fields, the part of Central Park that was right across the street from the Dakota, where John Lennon lived and was ultimately shot and killed in 1980. It’s where his ashes are scattered, and has been renamed Strawberry Fields.

At the 9/11 Memorial

Thursday morning we were at the 9/11 Memorial early, to take the first guided tour of the day. I have been to the Memorial several times, but never taken this tour, and it was so meaningful. I had seen this wall every time, of course, but learned that the tiles were painted to reflect how […]

Tuesday in New York

Tuesday of last week was Dover Day in NYC. Jeff & I stayed at the condo while Lindee & the girls headed back into the city. They toured the Empire State Building, did some NYC shopping, and ended the night taking in the play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. It was very late when […]

NYC Monday, Part 2

The only picture I got of the Statue of Liberty all day, because both my camera and my phone died. It’s taken through the windows of the I did get this picture of Jeff in front of the Manhattan skyline when we were got to Liberty Island, just before my camera died. It was such […]

Hersheyvania :-)

When we first visited Hershey, Pennsylvania, maybe eight or nine years ago, this is what Clara called it, so of course that’s how we’ve been referring to it ever since :-). We had a wonderful time at the Chocolate Lab, learning all kinds of chocolate trivia and making candy bars. Here are a couple of […]

Our Motel Room :-)

As we were heading north on vacation, we stopped when we got into Pennsylvania to spend the night. We were all so tired by then that we just fell into bed & crashed immediately. The kids were so jealous, though, when they came over to our room the next morning and realized Jeff & I […]

Hiking at Natural Bridge

After we left the D-Day Memorial, we stopped at the Natural Bridge, just a little ways down the road, to check it out and do some hiking. Alas, it started raining almost as soon as we got there, but never absolutely poured, so we just kept on walking :-). Lindee was observant enough to see […]
