Trafalgar Square, 1993

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I came across this picture of London’s Trafalgar Square when going through some old photos recently.  The original image was taken in 1983 when we were in London visiting our daughter Kelly who had a semester in London as part of her college studies.  The church is St-Martin-in-the-Field with South Africa House (at least in 1993) in the right foreground.  This image is from a scanned slide.

Early Morning at Ocean Isle Beach

One of the reasons My Beautiful Bride and I keep going back to Ocean Isle Beach in December is that we can enjoy beautiful views of the sunrise (and ocean) from our room at the Islander Inn.

Upper Red Fork Falls

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I enjoy hiking in November.  The weather is usually mild, and if we are hiking to a waterfall — which we usually are — the lack of leaves on the trees gives us a better view of the waterfall.  We  hiked to Upper Red Fork Falls near Erwin, Tennessee,  a few year ago.  This is the view we had.

Thorofare Gap

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

When My Beautiful Bride and I are on Skyline Drive (or the Blue Ridge Parkway) we never make quick progress since we stop at most of the overlooks we pass.  But the views of the mountains and the sky always seem to beg for some attention.  This picture was taken this past August at the Thorofare Gap Overlook on Skyline Drive in Virginia

Looking Back: Autumn Color Along the Cherohala Skyway

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

I’m afraid that the heat and drought of the past couple of months will mean that there won’t be much autumn color in or mountains this year.  That won’t stop us from looking for the colors of autumn, however.  I got this picture along the Cherohala Skyway several years ago.

O Shenandoah

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I celebrated Betsy’s birthday this year by going up to Virginia along the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyland Drive.  One of our favorite places when we are in that part of Virginia is Skyland Resort, which is right on Skyline Drive.  From the balcony of our room we were able to look down into the Shenandoah Valley.  This is the view we had one of the mornings we were there.

Betsy and I celebrated her birthday this year at Peaks of Otter Lodge on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia.  This is the view we had from our room of beautiful Lake Abbott.
