A Word A Week Challenge: Unexpected
Thank you to A Word In Your Ear for issuing this week’s A Word A Week Challenge …Unexpected.
When visiting the Adirondacks recently, I was surprised to see how high the water was at the lake on which my relatives live – 3 feet above normal for this time of year. This photo is of a neighbor’s dock, or rather, where the neighbor’s dock should be; the dock itself is submerged under water.
What I Had Missed
I took the pictures below at Natural Stone Bridge and Caves in Pottersville, NY. (In the second photo, note the size of the person on the right side of the entrance to the cave.) This beautifully scenic attraction is just about 10 miles from where I spent the summers of my youth and I only recently visited it for the first time. It makes me wonder what else I might have missed and, of course, what am I should really get out to see near where I live now. Next post … back to Kansas!

Look at the View!
My mother lives in a beautiful location in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. The gorgeous scenery prompts her to exclaim, “look at the view!” whenever she has company – something we in the family love to tease her about. During a recent visit, I took these photos from her beach. Indeed, it is a lovely view … in any direction, any time of the day.
