I hope that everyone is having a great weekend.
Rich and I spent the 4th of July doing things away from the crowds. It would have been great to go see fireworks or another ball game but we decided to take it easy and visited the Phipps conservatory.
What an amazing place. I am going to let some pictures show you all about it.
Some Chihuly glass.
In every color..
This guy looks like he is from Little Shop of Horrors...
More gorgeous gardens...
I am so glad that I got to see this place.
Yesterday we headed back home to NC. We made a small detour to Fort Necessity National Park.
This is a French & Indian War site where George Washington( at the age of 22) had to surrender. The tour that we were able to take with the park service guide was very informative. I am so glad we stopped here.
The park service personnel had black bands over their badges to honor the fallen firefighters from Arizona. When we went to the ball game they were also honored with a minute of silence. I am so saddened by this loss.
So, we are home and safe. Thank you for traveling with me. There will be one Pittsburgh post to come....the food post :) And I will show off a new start.
Have a wonderful Saturday.
