Conversation in the Parking Lot

On May 28, 2007 Dave and Connie went to Marg and Vince Thomas to Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Silvis, IL to attend a going away party for Father Jerry Logan who was being transferred to a church in Peoria. In the parking lot afterwards we got into a conversation with former Silvis mayor Joe Terronez, an old friend of Vince's.

It was beautiful weather Sunday when Connie, Nora and Dave went with Abraham and Tolin to watch them play soccer. Abraham, after starting the last few games, had to sit this one out until the last 15 minutes when he went in as a substitution.

Big Sur, California

, originally uploaded by Leviathor.

Here is another photo I found in Flickr. This is a picture of McWay Falls in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, Big Sur, California. This state park is named after Julia Pfeiffer Burns, a well respected pioneer woman in the Big Sur country. The park stretches from the Big Sur coastline into nearby 3,000-foot ridges. It features redwood, tan oak, madrone, chaparral, and an 80-foot waterfall that drops from granite cliffs into the ocean from the Overlook Trail. A panoramic view of the ocean and miles of rugged coastline is available from the higher elevations along the trails east of Highway 1

Nice photo from flickr

Trunk Bay, St. John, US Virgin Islands

This is a picture I found in FlickR by searching for "St. John Virgin Islands" FlickR makes it easy to blog on any photo. Once you have told Flickr about your blog(s) you just have to click on the "Blog This" icon above any photo that catches your fancy among the millions that have been uploaded and labeled public, type in your text, click Post and Flickr takes care of the rest.
This is Trunk Bay, one of the most beautiful places in the world. There is an underwater nature trail in this bay. You just rent the snorkeling equipment on the beach and swim along the trail, following the underwater signs.
We have started planning a return visit to St. John next summer.
