With summer in full swing, there are many excellent sites to see throughout the USA.

Richmond Virginia is one of them. Since 2008, I have had the good pleasure of visiting Virginia from Richmond to Leesburg and have enjoyed many wonderful sites of the State. my friend Katie and I have seen many historical sites in various places of the state (Monticello, James Madison Plantation, Edgar Allan Poe Museum, Chatam House, James River Canal Rides, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The Virginia Historical Society to name but a few), Sports (The Richmond Flying Squirrels – The team is a part of the Eastern League, is the Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants major league club, and plays at The Diamond.), Virginia Beach (beautiful sand, excellent swimming conditions in the Atlantic Ocean), The Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden (a beautiful site to see with its fantastic gardens located throughout the grounds and its greenhouse).

Richmond has developed itself again into an beautiful area. Over the last few years, it has undergone a major citywide beautification project to bring more tourism, enhancing itself city wide. it also held a major world wide bicycle competition in 2016. Whether its the arts and entertainment, a walk through the city, visiting the parks, music and the arts or sports, there is always something to see and do.

In late July, I will again visit one of my favorite places on Earth and enjoy my time with my good friend Katie.DSC_3616.JPGDSC_3645.JPG

DSC_4570.JPGI had a fun time in Brooklyn, NY yesterday. I watched the Brooklyn Cyclones play The Staten Island Yankees. The Cyclones won 3-0. I think its such a novel, good looking stadium. If you notice, Coney Island Amusement Park is directly behind it left and left center. Far right is Coney Island Beach. It was a beautiful day.

The first image, there was a mock, old time baseball game. Participants dressed to period of a game from the late 1890’s.

Long Island Ducks

The Long Island Ducks take on The Somerset Patriots at Bethpage Ball Park today at 5:05. This is the third game of a three game series. Thus far, The Ducks have taken 2 out of 2 games. This is a good feat, as the Patriots are a very tough team to beat and have had several excellent teams over the years. The Ducks and Patriots usually are battling it out for first place in their division. It makes for an exciting game.IMG_20150503_150704

Long Island Ducks

I had a lot of fun last night at the Long island Ducks game. they played the Somerset Patriots and won 6-3. The weather enhanced the experience and the crowd was in good spirits. LOL, the catcher, Mike Dowd of the Long Island Ducks tossed me the game ball between innings. I felt like a little kid last night. Sorry about the poor images of the “Selfie”, I am still a little new at it.
