What was I thinking?

When I did my recent posts, I suddenly realized that in my haste to take off to Iowa in June, I neglected to finish the Japan trip photos. I had left off our wonderful visit to Yokosuka. Chihiro and I have been e-penpals for 7 years and we had not met until this May. We stayed at a magnificent hotel right on the water where we could see the ships entering Tokyo Bay. One day Chihiro and Osama took us on a driving tour to a Temple and to the aquarium. They also took us to the train in Yokohama so we could get to Narita airport. What a great ending to a really special trip.

New Orleans

I have been so sad about what happened to and in New Orleans. The last time that I was there I stayed near the Superdome and walked all the way to the River Walk one day. I also rode the trolley through the St. Charles District. I can't seem to find the photos that I made on that trip, but I am still looking for them.
