Recent travels..

I had the great good luck to recently visit Germany and the Czech Republic, with a one-day sojourn into Salzburg as well.
I'll share some of those photos in the next week or so to show you some of the amazing sites you can take in as a traveler.
I traveled with a friend, so there were no tours involved -- we adventured on our own. It was a fabulous experience! 

To start, here are some photos from Munich:

Just because...

Just felt like sharing a few recent photos, 
because we all need to get away from the news of the day.

August is here...

Can you believe it's August already?
I'm sure the kids who will be heading back to school later this month are none too happy about that.
But those days are LONG behind me ... I have a trip to look forward to in August, so that certainly makes me happy.
And since I'm not a huge fan of the heat and humidity, August means we're another month closer to autumn!
But Othercat seems pleased with any day he can be outside in pleasant weather, so we took a stroll around the yard today to offer a few photos at the start of this new month.

Love Knoebels!

This past weekend was a busy one, with a visit to relatives in Catawissa, a great day in State College for Arts Fest at Penn State, taking in another fest in Boalsburg and then a visit to Knoebels amusement park. 

It wasn't a long visit, since we were heading home after such a whirlwind weekend, but it was great to be there nonetheless.
And here are a few photos from our time there. If you get a chance to head to the park, don't miss it. Free parking and free admission, a relaxed atmosphere and a great park for the whole family!

 I love the train! The photo above was shot from the meandering rail trip, and you can see the train below...

The carousel is just a blur ... another favorite!

Don't miss the Haunted Mansion. Love it!!

 The water at the base of the flume ride is a refreshing spot...

And there's plenty of beauty throughout the park...

Fear of heights? Avoid this one!

And if you remember -- and loved -- the Golden Nugget in Wildwood from days gone by, don't miss the Black Diamond. Knoebels rescued the old ride and revamped it for this park. It's not quite the same, but brings back great memories regardless.

Here are a few photos from the annual Red, White and Blue Parade in Upper Salford Township.
It was another great parade.
Hope everyone has a great day!
And NEVER forget to work hard to preserve our freedoms and rights.
It is more important than ever to speak out, stay informed and persist!
