Home Team 4 Visitors NADA!

This past weekend we made the trip upstate to visit family and attend a ball game in the city!
We ate at a vegetarian Mexican eatery they had sidewalk dining so we people watched while we ate something we don't get to do out in the rurals where we live..unless we go to Walmart~



! Mom has never been to a "real" ballgame, this is not the Braves or the Yankees or the Mets like I used to attend when I lived up in NYC but its the Greenville Drive! Its way more fun than a Major League game for the reasons I'm sure you already know!  I don't think I saw one single spitting match or one inappropriate scratching!!


IT was HOT as heck! but the first pitch was at 7 pm and soon the sun went behind a cloud and then behind the stadium seats so we enjoyed it after that! 


They Won 4-0 Pretty cool!

I saw a few things along the way...

this is Shower Bath Falls its bigger than some  and smaller than some! the book says its a 13 ft falls...not much water coming over although we have had more rain lately...


This stump has a great spot to live and die don't you think?


Found a roadside meadow! Full of small tidbits and this butterfly...tell me is it a Pearl Crescent?


the mountains had a summer haze laying over them...it was cooler up there though!


Now back home its 97 degrees 50 % humidity...and tomorrow we expect 1-2 inches of rain! I hope it pushes the heat out for a while.


PEACE

  3. I guess that lovely polar vortex won't get that far south. It's really a breath of fresh air for us here in Iowa. Those AA or AAA, whatever, ball games are fun. The one in Jacksonville had cute audience - participation contests during the seventh inning stretch. Your Mom does look happy.

    1. Rhode Island...a beautiful state. The northerners really get into the game...I used to go see the Cyclones when I lived in NYC also they were our local minor league team the stadium was within walking distance of where i lived..along the boardwalk of Coney Island! It was a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon...$8 for a ticket and huge bread pretzels with mustard!!
      I want to put up the video of the National anthem from this game the girl who sang did an amazing job!

  6. Gorgeous waterfall shot! Nice shots of your mom too- she looks like she's doing good. Haven't been to a ball game in forever, but any excuse to have a beer and a veggie dog sounds like a good time to me.

  7. Something about being at a real, live game (as opposed to watching on TV). Glad your Mom got to take it in. She looks a cutie and also enjoying herself. Some nice scenery shots too.
