Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

US Naval Academy

Happy Fourth of July

Ten years ago, we had the privilege of touring the US Naval Academy in Annapolis with a WWII veterans group.  Here are a few highlights from that trip…special access…lunch in the dining hall with cadets, tour of the chapel, seeing the cadets march to football game in their dress whites and last but not least attending the Evening Parade at the Marine Corps Barracks (George and Laura Bush were in attendance).




From Houzz: “Chihuly in the Garden”

Chihuly’s glasswork creates high drama in the garden.

Credit to Ann Wilkerson for sharing her photos of Chihuly’s exhibition in Dallas 2012.  She had high praise and delight for this world class show.
