Time for this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography.

Here are Cee’s questions for this week:

 

What is the most famous landmark or building you have ever seen?

Probably the Eiffel Tower.

Though many of the national parks we’ve been to or most things in DC are immediately recognizable as well.

Do you like long vacation or lots of mini-vacations?

Yes.

What is your favorite natural or state park?

The ones I visit most often are Pisgah National Forest in NC and Daniel Boone National Forest and/or Mammoth Cave National Park here in KY.  We live about an hour from Daniel Boone and about 40 min from Mammoth Cave.  We visit each multiple times every year.

But my favorite is Yosemite National Park.  Standing in Yosemite Valley is the most stunningly beautiful and awe inspiring place I’ve ever seen.

What is your fantasy vacation?

The first time I saw the photo albums my MIL collected from her trips to Kenya, I was hooked.  I want to make that trip at least once before I’m gone.  The wildlife is outstanding and photo ops are plentiful.  And, according to CJ, the people are fantastic, and as warm and welcoming as possible.

I dated a girl in college who was South African and she told me all about Kruger National Park.  That’s one I’d love to see as well.

Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

It’s hard to speak of what I’m grateful for, and blessed to have, in light of more craziness in England.  While I’m certainly grateful to live where I do, I’m so, so sad for the direction this planet, and my country, seem to be heading.

As for what I’m looking forward to in the next week, it’s getting my ass in a truck and heading to Ocracoke.  5 days and counting.

 

My songs of the day are:

“Good Night, Travel Well” by The Killers

“Saturday In The Park” by Chicago

“Roads Less Travelled” by Ziggy Marley

“Alec Eiffel” by The Pixies

“World Gone Crazy” by The Doobie Brothers

“The Traveling Kind” by Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell

“Rock Creek Park” by The Blackbyrds

“Traveling Riverside Blues” by Led Zeppelin
