The trip to MV is on the map, but not included in the mileage.
I was fortunate enough to get dozens of photos of old signs. My heart just beats a little faster each time I see one. I have to admit that a few of the signs I wasn't able to photograph, but I got as many as I could.
I collected smashed pennies all along my route and even had to buy a new book I collected so many. Bob helped though, she gave me over a dozen that she'd been collecting for me. I saw the largest hibiscus flowers I've ever seen in New Jersey. I learned that the red buoys in the water are called nuns and the sun was so brilliant that the Landfall casts a deep shadow.
Outdoor plants casting a great shadow on a fabric shade.
Paintbrushes from my friend Phyllis, who's paintings are incredible with the tacky snowglobes that I just love to photograph. Three others besides myself went to the beach on Martha's Vineyard and the ancient church at a cemetery has plywood where stained glass once was. (I believe the glass was removed so as not to get destroyed, but I haven't looked into that yet)
The slideshow is a compilation of all the placed I toured.
Bob, her daughter Lily and I are all waving at our reflection while hanging out on the ferry to the Vineyard.
