Beautiful fall morning in Washington D.C. This was the perfect day for the Marine Corps Marathon. We jumped on and off the metro following our friend running his first marathon. He finished in 3:07:41 and his dad would've been very proud. This reflection was a nice surprise as we walked across the bridge.

Let's go O's!

O is for Orioles!! Great evening for a ball game at Oriole's Park Camden Yards in Baltimore MD.
Obviously with the full seats the game was very early in the season. Okay maybe next year will be theirs.

N is for Nipple!

We took my grandaughter to the county fair and she enjoyed "milking" the cow. She really had a lot of fun and took it very seriously. The real animals freaked her out but this wooden cow she enjoyed! Go figure.

M is for MAILBOX!

I love to see different mailboxes and these are some of the more original ones around my neighborhood. The fish is my favorite. What's yours?

Mallard Island Wedding Chapel located at the bridge to Long Beach Island N.J. I loved this little chapel and thought it would be a great venue for my daughters wedding. I didn't know that a Catholic wedding must be held inside a Catholic church. Learn something new everyday!

I arrived home after work today and at the end of my street the sun was reflecting in the water. It was so bright it looked like the water was on fire. This picture doesn't do it justice. You may try enlarging it really was awesome.

Every Wednesday evening before the summer sun sets over Annapolis, the Severn River becomes a nautical small town. The sailors exchange pleasantries, then prepare to race.
The Annapolis Yacht Club's Wednesday night racing series lets sailors pit their wits against the elements on a zig-zag course beginning at the Severn and stretching into the Chesapeake Bay. The races are a midweek mental-health break -- a place where sailboat enthusiasts can bring their children, their parents or a new romantic interest and not take the competition too seriously. I great place for camera buffs too!

This is a quiet morning on the Chesapeake Bay. Those baskets on sticks are actually crab nets. Lot's of people still enjoy catching crabs by tieing a chicken neck to a string and attaching the string to the pier. When the string is pulled taut you have a Maryland crab nibbling and the game begins. It's really fun to drag the string in towards the pier slowly enough that the crab doesn't "get it". When they get close you scoop them up using these long handled baskets. It's easier to throw a crab pot in the bay and come back for it later but not half the fun.

Chicago is such an amazing city. Reflections are everywhere! I took this during the Riverboat Architectural tour. I highly recommend this scenic ride through the city.
Olympic committee missed a great opportunity. I've very disappointed.

Peaceful sailing along the Severn River. Shower ended and sun poked through the clouds. I love the reflection. More Sky Watch on my sidebar.
