The eastern coast hot spell was evident while we were in Potter County, PA. It was hot, hot, hot! I never thought I would be glad we got an air conditioner for the cabin, but I was. Enough on the the weather..... the birds were quiet, there were very few bugs and it was great to read on the porch, take pictures and look for heart rocks in the creek. And yes, I spent some time removing unwanted residents. More in flickr photostream.
Walking around NYC is a special treat for me. I can't take everything in fast enough! The photographs in this series are just a fraction of what I saw during my visit. Constant photographing would have caused tripping, bad behavior and injury to me and the passers-by! More in the flickr photostream.
