New Orleans, LA ~ This is only a glimpse of Tulane’s campus. The grounds are quite large, and we didn’t have enough time to see everything. Even still, we had a very pleasurable stroll on a very nice day! Advertisements
New Orleans, LA ~ If you make your way to New Orleans, the St. Louis Cemeteries are a must see. These cemeteries are said to be the oldest of its type – with above ground tombs. There are many famous people buried here, including Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. I’m sure it is just a coincidence, but after passing her grave and making light of it, I came down with a flu bug a couple of days later. Perhaps I was […]
Ypsilanti, MI ~ The Peninsular Paper plant was constructed in 1867 and closed around 2001. The building pictured is the old Peninsular Paper generator house. This structure is now officially owned by the Peninsular Apartments (not pictured; located on the opposite side of the river). The remaining pictures are of the Huron River and of the Eastern Michigan University campus – Go EMU Eagles!

Riviera, TX ~ These photos were taken while on a drive to the country side. If you happen to live in these parts, you’ll know that everywhere is technically the “country side.” Either way, this was one of those afternoon drives where we went off of the main highway just to see what we could find. The Our Lady of Consolation church is located south of Kingsville, TX on Country Road 628. This church has a fascinating history; established around […]

Mackinac Island, MI ~ I truly regret not getting more photos of the homes and buildings on this island. We were having too much fun I guess. This is one of the most beautiful getaways I’ve ever been on. Most travel is done by bike, buggy, or foot, which means a lot of exercise and outdoor time. The historic element is amazing. It is as if the town is preserved in time, a pristine reflection of the Victorian era. One […]

Post, TX ~ Post is a small town about 45 minutes away from Lubbock, TX. This was often a stopping point on our way out of town. There is a really good (in a bad way) burger stand on the north side of town. They served all of the goodies I remember buying at the snack bar in high school – burritos, cheese fries, ice cream, and, of course, a texas size greasy cheeseburger. These pictures were taken on a […]
Boise, ID ~ This is a popular place to exercise. Located behind the penitentiary are large bluffs and walking trails. Many people park their cars at the base of the hills and walk/jog the trails. You could spend all day here depending on how far you’d like to go. Many of these pictures were taken at the top of these bluffs. As a side note, the penitentiary is said to be haunted. For those of you who are fans, the Ghost […]
Boerne, TX ~ Boerne is an amazing town located about thirty minutes north of San Antonio, TX. The town has grown a lot since I was last there, but it still feels cozy and welcoming. I can’t wait to go back. The Bear Moon Bakery is worth the drive!
