Happy Halloween!

I don’t feel like dressing up this year, but I still love Halloween.

I hope the bad weather doesn’t keep my three expected trick-or-treaters away.

Travels: Babcock State Park

After escaping the crowds at Bridge Day (I love watching the BASE jumpers, but then, so does everyone else), we went to Babcock State Park.

Amusingly, many many other people had the same idea, so by the time we left, the parking lot was overflowing.

Babcock State Park is famous for its grist mill–you’ve probably seen a picture of it.

You had a wait quite awhile to get a picture without people.

Travels: Bridge Day

One week after our last visit, we were back at the New River Gorge, this time for Bridge Day.

The skies were overcast and grey, but there were still BASE jumpers to watch.

Travels: Great Smoky Mountains

Part of the reason we wanted to drive, is so we could see parts of the country we hadn’t before. Which is why we came back through the Great Smoky Mountains. It was an amazingly beautiful day, which made the drive all the nicer.

Travels: Georgia Aquarium, Part Two

The special exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium was frogs.

I can’t say frogs are a personal favorite, but my friend Susan loves them, so I paid close attention and took lots of pictures, because they made me think of her.

They had Poison Dar Frogs, which are Susan’s favorite. I didn’t get many good pictures of them.

Travels: Georgia Aquarium, Part One

I love aquariums. Every time we visit Cincinnati, we have to visit Newport Aquarium. And we used to visit at least once a year. So I was looking forward to seeing the Georgia Aquarium.

Travels: Charlotte to Atlanta

This week was Michael’s conference, and this year it was in Atlanta. Michael convinced his work to let us drive (everyone else flew), so we drove down via Charlotte, where we got to meet Eric and Kat.

This was the sunrise Tuesday morning, from our hotel room on the 40th floor of the Marriott.
