A Beautiful Saturday in July!

Today was the first Saturday in several weeks in which Paul didn't have to work. So with the whole day ahead of us we started out with his school reunion. 2007 marks the 30th year of Paul's graduation from Mt. Savage School in Mt. Savage Maryland. This year is the 55th anniversary of the school and to celebrate the school hosted a school wide reunion. Paul enjoyed visiting with some old friends and then we took ourselves off to do some photography but first we stopped by Paul's school. Here he is in front of the place where he spent 7 years of his life.



We visited a church in the town and snapped a few photos. Doesn't this look like a lovely place to sit and wonder on the magnificence of God?



An archway looking out to the road of the cemetery. I think cemeteries are peaceful places.


After leaving Mt. Savage we went to Frostburg, Maryland to wait for the scenic train to arrive. While we were waiting I took a few snaps of the lovely flowers around the station.









Then I thought I would try my hand at some photos of the station. I think these turned out rather well.



Paul used Photoshop to make this one Black & White. Makes you feel like your in the 40's doesn't it?


Then the train arrived. Paul & I both like steam engines. There isn't anything quite as nostalgic as a steam train and nothing quite as powerful. It made the ground shake!


And filled the air with cinders and smoke. I ran for the cover of the station.





To finish our morning and afternoon out we had lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Texas Grillhouse. The rest of the evening we are spending at home resting and enjoying our back deck.
