Re: Kentucky 2017

I wonder if this water lily feels lonely. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4507/37714091536_385bda43bf_c.jpg These guys at least have each other. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4444/37092413453_41115a6339_c.jpg I think I must have embarrassed these young men when I took their picture. Sorry about that. ...

Re: Kentucky 2017

Thank you, Lofty. Whatever seems to work. It is now the third day (5/29/17), and we are visiting the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. I took a lot of pictures, but many of them were lost. So sad. These made it through. Our first stop was… https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4485/37356974940_d971c7...

Re: Kentucky 2017

It is now the second day (5/28/17), and we have arrived at a family reunion, held in a gorgeous park with pavilion, near St. Louis, MO. Flowers come first. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4478/23626881978_cf2840d162_c.jpg Gorgeous surroundings. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4450/36809356993_fe3a672738...

Kentucky 2017

As you may have realized with pictures from previous trips, I name the overall group of pictures with the primary name of the destination. In this case, it is Kentucky. Of course, I take pictures all along the way. I’ll try to explain where we were at each point. Sometimes, I don’t really know. If p...

Re: Boonville 2015 Part 2

You are certainly welcome, ldai_phs. Thank you for looking and commenting. These are the last pictures from the Boonville trip on 10/20/15, which lasted for only one day. We are visiting the inside of a winery. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4425/37252837281_f1d849dddb_c.jpg My son is looking inside ...

Boonville 2015 Part 2

We just left the hotel. It’s right next to the big and wide Missouri River. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4422/36463629723_2827151874_c.jpg This must have been across the street. We’re on foot. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4425/36880533880_9eca0ef365_c.jpg You know me. Found flowers. These seem bej...

Re: Boonville 2015

We have a few more pictures of the Frederick Hotel. As I said before, we were allowed to look at refurbished rooms in the Hotel Frederick. It appears that couples would have to take turns at the sink. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4387/36838952066_dd24264fe1_c.jpg A fellow tourist checks out the bed...

Re: Boonville 2015

Thank you for your kind comments. My husband said my pictures weren't as good as actually being there. Hmm. He liked the architecture and overall pleasantness of the hotel. Maybe the next batch of pictures will be better.

We’re done with the Clydesdale ranch. We’re on our way to another location. From my bus window, I snapped this shot of what appears to be a government building.

Re: Boonville 2015

This one took more time than you would think. I put a small portion of the image in a 4:3 layer, reduced the size of the original picture and plopped it on top. Then I cut around each letter in the bottom layer and deleted the selection from the top layer. The result is just okay. https://c1.staticf...

Re: Boonville 2015

The tour would have to include a Budweiser wagon. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4366/36354040505_8c6f85e9e6_c.jpg And a picture of Clydesdales pulling one. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4407/35545751803_4bddd4b5bc_c.jpg Knowledgeable people kept us in the know. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4375/355...

Boonville 2015

I guess we’re done with Padre Island 2016. We’ll go back several months to a one-day trip to Boonville, Missouri. The primary focus of the bus trip on October 20, 2015 was to visit one of the places where Clydesdale horses are bred for Budweiser. The name of the facility is Warm Springs Ranch, and o...

We are still visiting the Lyndon B Johnson museum/library, and this is his office. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4299/35580590770_4a3267702f_c.jpg More of the office. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4318/35798855702_27c211192d_c.jpg This is Ladybird’s gown. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4303/355805906...
