Oh well.

I had some time to play with the camera today over at Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat (Ft. Mitchell, AL). The light was bright and clear. This is truly Holy Ground. One of my special places in this world.

On to Philly and Longwood Gardens

After saying farewell to Marty, and Bruce and Gene (not pictured anywhere) and departing Emmitsburg we proceeded on to Philadelphia (Germantown). Why I took no pictures in Germantown, I have no idea. But, we ventured south to visit Longwood Gardens.
