Thursday 6/18/09 - "MORE TRAVEL PICTURES"

Annunciation Garden

Four large bells in a reflection pool

My nature trail
(I actually climbed over the trees)

A hummingbird on the porch
of the home I'm visiting in N.C.

The view from the top of the
mountain looking down on the town


This blog will need to be quite short. We arrived at the top of this mountain where my sponsee lives this afternoon. Words cannot describe how beautiful it is. My friend is such a gracious hostess. We dined on potato crusted cod, Brussels sprouts, little potatoes, and a delicious salad. It was the healthiest meal I've had in a while and I loved every bite.

I am afraid of heights so being on the top of a mountain is a little strange. There is a porch running around most of the house and I just stay away from the edge. It is a spectacular view. The breeze outside was delightful. Now, a rain has begun to fall and I am sitting in a gigantic main room with glass windows all around me, watching lightening flash as the night grows darker. The only sound is the tapping on my keyboard as I blog. This is an unreal experience.

Tomorrow, we'll be going to a noon AA meeting with my friend and I'm truly looking forward to that. Later in the afternoon hubby and I will be off to Asheville, N.C. to meet up with another blogger.

My day has been a very long one and my head is pounding. I think it's time to put up the keyboard and mouse and say, "good-night".

Good-night from,
Prayer Girl

It looks like a great view. Hope that your pounding head feels better. Mine was pounding yesterday as well. Enjoy Asheville. It's a cool town.

That site is terrific. You're going to have to get home to rest from vacation.

I'm am so blessed to have met you and your wonderful husband. I was very moved at mass last Sunday, and I am thinking about rejoining the Church here.

Love to you Anna.
