Heading to the SW

On the heels of a four day weekend the Queen and I are looking forward to our upcoming six day weekend, starting this Friday. We are heading to Arizona for a wedding with a brief stop in Sedona before continuing on to Santa Fe. The Queen is in a wedding at the Arizona Biltmore, the site of McCain's wedding and concession speech. I'm sure it will be a good time. We took a trip earlier this year to Zion National Park in Utah, so I suppose it's a SW kind of year for us. It will give me a chance to dust off the camera (literally) and play with my photography toys a bit.

Since I promised not to write too much for my next post, here are some more pictures I've taken in and around the city.

This man is a reenactor at Fort McHenry. The defense of Fort McHenry inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star Spangled Banner. IMG_1271

Loch Raven is North of the city in Baltimore County. It is beautiful in the fall.

Rawlings Conservatory is in a sketchy area of town, but it's a beautiful place to visit. During daylight. _MG_6729

I like this picture, and I'm not sure why. It just seems comfortable. It was taken at a friend's house. _MG_6979

Here is the Queen looking radiant while stepping into the light. _MG_7024

Gotta love the creativity of whoever thought up this sign. Must have been a marketing major. :-) IMG_0894

Based upon my last post you'd thind we'd be bunkering down and not spending any money. We've been planning on this trip for a long time, so there is no escaping it, and frankly we need it. It will be nice to rid ourselves of renovation dust, galavant at the Biltmore and gallop across the desert.

I love BAR. I used to work in in fells pt and a friend and I hatched a plan to visit every bar in the area at least once. I think I went to bar at least twice,

Some nice piccies. I especially like the Loch Raven shot. Have a good time in Arizona. Sedona is gorgeous -- be sure to go up Oak Creek Canyon.

Paul - I have also been there a couple of times, and one word describes it best. Musty.

Gene - Oak Creek looks beautiful. We haven't figured out what we're doing yet in Sedona, but it looks like it's worth checking out.

Don't feel guilty about leaving your home, vacations are a must for renovations. Enjoy.

Love the reservoir, but I'll take the Queen any day.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I have a picture of that sign as well, and I think it's my favorite picture from Baltimore. Your blog is great!
