9/Summer10: Beautiful Parks

Friday, June 25, 2010




Cedarville State Forest, south-eastern Maryland

QUESTIONS BEFORE DARK

Day ends, and before sleep
when the sky dies down, consider
your altered state: has this day
changed you? Are the corners
sharper or rounded off? Did you
live with death? Make decisions
that quieted? Find one clear word
that fit? At the sun's midpoint
did you notice a pitch of absence,
bewilderment that invites
the possible? What did you learn
from things you dropped and picked up
and dropped again? Did you set a straw
parallel to the river, let the flow
carry you downstream?

~ Jeanne Lohmann ~
(The Light of Invisible Bodies)

I've gotta' get out on the Trek before the heat becomes unbearable.

Blessed be!
xox

    You've been getting LOTS of time on your trusty Trek, as well as many, many scenic beauties to enhance your soul ... keep on keepin' on, my friend ... enjoy it all and just soak it in.

Wish I could be on one of those rides with you, but am delighted you're sharing with us so we can at least live it vicariously!

8.5/Summer10: PAJAMA PARTY!!!

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

I discovered Harrisburg's Greenbelt yesterday morning and the Trek'n me got in almost 18 miles exploring it...from a Martin Luther King commemoration, to a labyrinth, 5 Senses Gardens, a community garden, and a happy and active creek keeping me company most of the way

THEN then I hurried home to be there for Noreen's (NORLANA) arrival and I'm sorry to say we took very few photos...we -- me'n Tracy'n Noreen were MUCH TOO BUSY yakking and having fun!

I got one measly photo of Noreen shortly after she arrived, and she was totally engrossed in bonding with Pickles and explaining... SOMETHING obviously *very* profound (BTW, the bike seat behind Noreen is the Trek!):



And I managed to a passerby to take a shot when we went on a walk yesterday evening with Pickles along the Susquehanna River after Tracey got home from a hard day at the office.



(Note: I wasn't sure *why* the psychedelic cows, but in any case it supports Tracey's Mooville nickname for Harrisburg!)...but Valerie, from the SP European contingent, in her comment solved the mystery:

"CowParade is an international public art exhibit that has been featured in major world cities. Fiberglass sculptures of cows are decorated by local artists, and distributed over the city centre, in public places such as train stations, important avenues, and parks. They often feature artwork and designs specific to local culture, as well as city life and other relevant themes. After the exhibition in the city, which lasts many months, the cows are auctioned off and the proceeds donated to charity." And it reached MOOVILLE!!!!!!
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CowParade

After getting to bed late, 'cause we just had...SO MUCH to talk about, we had wonderful fruit salad for breakfast this morning, Tracey had to take off for work, and Noreen and I hung out a while longer before she jumped in the shower to ready herself for returning to her *other* life!

We all loved being together! Tracey is SUCH a generous and gracious hostess-with-the-mostest and sweet, substantative friendships are blossoming.

Blessed be!

The cow might be part of the Cow Parade.
A few years ago, we had many cows designed by different artists like this one in Paris, the aim was also to support charitable actions through art (against Aids in Africa for the Cow Parade in Paris.)
These cows have toured Europe, and Japan, they might have made their way to the US and to Mooville. I couldn't think of a better place for them! ;)

8/Summer10: STLRZGRRL's Mooville & Other Assorted Pleasures

Monday, June 21, 2010

Sunday (yesterday), after the wonderful gathering with Lewis (LEWISH11), Tracey took me to her home the "long" way, over country roads in beautiful southern PA, stopping to pick up some local black raspberries and blueberries (YUMMY breakfast material!!!) AND (to answer Lynn's (LYNNANN43) question) yes, among other small towns, we went through Hershey and by the chocolate manufacturing complex!

OK, since I've had such scarce and paltry internet access, I'm WAY behind on any kind of chronological journalling. So I'll just start with this morning and work backwards, posting a few photos of some of what's been transpiring during this odyssey.


Here's dear Tracey, ready to leave for work this morning, with sweet Pickles


SparkFriends Tracey and Lewis as we're about to head in for breakfast and wonderful conversation yesterday


Acknowledging Lew's birthday during the gathering


Enjoying murals in Mooville, AKA Harrisburg, PA as I followed Tracey to her place on Saturday


A glimpse of the state capitol building as we cruised downtown Harrisburg, me following her uber-cool Honda Insight (a woman who walks her talk!)


OMG! Lake Codorus, just inside PA crossing from MD, within the State Park, 26 mi. of beautiful shoreline and wooded beauty


LOVED my campsite at Codorus where I spent Friday night!

While at Kiptopeke State Park on the Eastern Shore, VA I went on a 24-mile bike ride into Cape Charles and environs. Here are some photos from that trip:


I had a low fat frozen yogurt chocolate malt at the local soda fountain!






And then on to the Cape Charles Beach


Oh, and...my *tan lines*from my sandals!

To be continued...!

7/Summer10: My Trusty Trek

Monday, June 14, 2010

I biked 28 miles Friday...and man was my butt sore! It has been a while since I've riden that distance. I rode the Cape Henry Trail through First Landing State Park and then tooled around VA Beach, which is a HUGE tourist city. Here are some photos of the day:





The sweat lodge


See the Spanish moss?


Through the first part of the trail there were markers with information about the life-and-times of the Chesapeake Indians.


Bog, I think.




Off the trail and heading toward Boardwalk VA Beach, a lovely home


...with an AWESOME hedge of roses around three sides of the house!!


I love Heritage Natural Foods, Cafe and Gifts. They have terrific organic produce.

    I love the photos. So glad you got to the First Landing State Park. It is really impressive to stand on the shore and think about the first landing, on this strip of land infested with mosquitoes. It is actually a very pretty place, but when the settlers came, they really had to scratch out their existence, and so many of them perished from famine. It is remarkable being in the old church and looking at the foundation laid all of those years past.

I had avoided the reconstructed village when I went the first time, and just basked in the history of past footprints. Two years ago, though, I took my 8 year old niece to the touristy village and we had a lot of fun.

Thank you for sharing your trip with us. It has been fun to experience it vicariously.

6/Summer10: Hey Jude!

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Maha: Well......FINALLY some sistah' fun! Yeah, Jude got here to First Landing this morning around 9am and we first enjoyed the morning here at the state park getting to know each other "3-D." Then we decided to go cruising...down to the Boardwalk to do some people watching.


Sand soccer anyone?


Butts galore!


Jude, in the turquoise, is returning from checking out King Neptune.


I'm in the bright orange, wanting to get up-close and personal with the King.


Jude wanted to stay at the Cavalier, but I talked her into hanging out with me in the Dolphin!


C'mon Jude, time to get up!

Jude: No traffic! I got here almost an hour before I thought I would and found Maha's little camper in the woods. What a wonderful time, meeting a soul sister! We started the day with a plate of fresh fruit and then headed out to the beach area. The Mayflower Cafe had the most wonderful Mediterranean Cuisine and a cute waiter who read read our Turkish coffee grounds. In honor of Sparky eating we split a baklava! The search for dry ice was a bust and our dinner was guac with fresh avacados, tomatoes, onion, and salsa and black bean chips with melted cheese, nacho-style.


This little "hole in the wall" was recommended by friends at Yogaville.


Lunch at the Mayflower with tabouli and a Turkish "tapas" plate.


Chopping onions and tomato for the guacamole.


Dinner at "home."

Something was in the air as we walked on the beach later in the day. Dragonflies were everywhere landing on our hands, hopefully feasting on the nasty little biting flies.

Maha: Jude is being modest. Dragonflies landed on HER hands, nasty little biting flies landed on MY hands...and other assorted body parts. Jamie Sams in her Animal Medicine says of the Dragonfly that it will "guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation." GO JUDE! In spite of all that the beach walk was wonderful and we waded a little in the warming Atlantic.


This morning the computer was acting up, and I gave it a piece of my mind (that was my first mistake this morning)!

Blessed be!
Maha AND Jude

    Are you in Virginia Beach or someplace else with a giant Neptune that looks like Virginia Beach. Honestly, I think I have some of the same pictures except with my sister and me in them.

It looks like you are having a wonderful time. I love the photos of you in your camper preparing food and eating. You look happily at home. emoticon

Enjoy, enjoy!
