Past Few Weeks 2

Welcome to part two of my day in Jim Thorpe with Lisa.  


                          You cannot really tell from this picture but on the four corners
                          of this building above the clocks are gargoils.  As many times
                          as i have been here, I never noticed.  

                                  What captivates me the most about coming to 
                                  Jim Thorpe is the architecture and colors.
                                  The buildings are so vibrant in color and never
                                  look as though they have aged.


                                                      Love the flags.


                                  On this particular weekend, there were a lot of yard 
                                  sales.  My friend Lisa says it is called Yard Sale
                                  Weekend. Strange we would go at this time without
                                  knowing it was that time of the year.

                                   The town and people are really amazing.  Here we
                                   have a young lad outside the ice cream shop
                                   waiting for his parents and sister. 

                                    My pictures do tell the whole story because 
                                    the town was crawling with people.  Almost all the
                                    shops were filled with would-be shoppers and 

                                     Other alluring features of JT are the trains and train
                                     rides, bike and hiking trails that are offered as part 
                                     of the town.

                                     This bridge leads across the rafting waters, which
                                     has a bike path and a walking area for the people.

                                                       Just part of the show.

                                     After a short walk we came to rest at Glen Onoko 
                                     Falls Trail. I had a wonderful time and was pleased 
                                     with the people we met along the way on what 
                                     turned out to be a really beautiful and great day.

                                     The time has come to end this post but be on
                                     the lookout for more pics of the PA lifestyle.
                                     Thank you for your time and God bless.


Past Few Weeks

Good day to all.   Here are some of the goings on in my life these past couple of weeks.
My dear friend Lisa and I went for a roadtrip to Jim Thorpe, PA.  Jim Thorpe is only a few minutes from where live but there is plenty to do and see.  So come, journey through the photos and see the sights.

                          After parking the car, we come across a group of 
                          going on a whitewater rafting trip.  The picture does 
                          tell the whole story but there was a lot of people there.

                           Including...Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the 
                           Caribbean movies.  Hmm, you doubt?

                           Take a closer look!  You are right.  It's not him.

                           The group is getting some final instructions before
                           they shove off.  Looks like fun.


                     Off they go for what I believe is a six mile trek down the river.

As I watched them go i felt the need to go rafting myself, but I fought it and stayed on the shore.  Haha
This was just the opening salvo to our fun filled day in Jim Thorpe.

Part 2 soon to follow.
