Hello everyone! Just sayin hi...

Sunday, November 7, 2010

Hi world! Just checking in to say that I'm still around and doing well...unlike this blog, which needs some serious updating.

A lot has happened since my last blog post - I bought a condo, switched jobs, and traveled all over the place. Not much else to report thanks to the one or two people that still check in.

I spent a weekend in Philadelphia! It was my first time in the city. Pictures below:

This is the view of Philadelphia from the Art Museum (Rocky steps). Great view!

Rocky's small feet at the top of the steps.

This is that "LOVE" sculpture with a view of the Art museum in the distance.

This is city hall. I liked the sculpture.

The line was really long for the Liberty Bell so we decided to look at it from outside.

This is where Benjamin Franklin is buried.

A view of the Independence Hall tower.

A view of Independence Hall.

One of my favorite tourist spots - Elfreth's Alley. It is the oldest continually inhabited street in the country. People still live here! One house was built in 1703.

Another shot of the street.

Philly phanatic!

I never thought I'd spend 5 days in Arkansas but I did recently. I loved it! I stayed in Hot Springs for my entire trip and did a quick drive-thru tour of Little Rock. I thought it was a beautiful state. Pictures below:

This is one of about eight bath houses that line downtown Hot Springs. The first national park was founded here and the National Parks Service still maintains the park.

Only two of the bath houses offer traditional baths. Most, like this one above, have been turned into a museum. For sixty bucks, I was able to get a full traditional bath and a massage - a great deal!

This is a view of the hills that line down town Hot Springs from the promenade that wraps around bath house row.

This is a shot of one of the natural hot springs.

I didn't know this but Bill Clinton was raised in Hot Springs. This is his boyhood home.

I spent some time at Oaklawn where I bet on some horse races.

I won 100 bucks. This is a shot of some horses finishing up a race.

If you ever get a chance, go to Hot Springs!

Blizzard 2010!!!

This is my street corner during the middle of the blizzard.

Someone cleared their sidewalk. Look how high the snow has piled up! It only got higher throughout the day.

I decided to walk down to the White House. This is a shot of 14th street - it's normally really busy but there wasn't a single car out. It was really peaceful.

This is a look up Rhode Island Ave. to Logan Circle.

This is Lafayette Park, right in front of the White House.

The White House covered in snow!

This is one of the gates outside of the White House.

Work is cancelled tomorrow! Thank you snow gods!

Happy new year everyone!!! Thanks to all two of you who read my blog every once-in-awhile. I appreciate your support. I know the posts have slowed down tremendously but I promise to check in every now and then and at least posting twice a month. I realize this has also become more of a photo blog than anything but hopefully you'll like that.

Have a great year!
