Celebrating the US National Park Service: Happy 100th Anniversary

I live near Washington, DC, and the area is full of National Parks, Monuments, Historic Sites, and Museums. Most of them are free to visitors. It is a wonderful place to spend a holiday if you have kids. The sites are managed by the National Park Service, which is celebrating its 100th birthday.

Breaking Through The Ceiling

Ceiling decoration, Upper Loggia, The Breakers,1893-1895, Newport, Rhode Island

The Vanderbilt’s summer “cottage,” The Breakers, was built between 1893-1895. No expense was spared on its decorative elements. The painted ceiling  of the Upper Loggia depicts three decorative canopies against a blue sky, bringing the outside into the room that served an an informal living room. The loggia faces the Atlantic Ocean and its windows can be opened to create a breezeway during warm weather.

Dive-Bomb

Dive bombing gull, Chena Lakes, Alaska

I got too close to a gull’s nest while walking along the shore of Chena Lake near Fairbanks, Alaska. The gull began to dive-bomb me, swooping very close to the top of my head.
