Sunnier, Happier Days

Theme: ARCHITECTURE | Become a Photo Hunter | View Blogroll

I was going to go out and take pictures of some of the interesting barns I see see everyday or maybe the old huge victorian farm house down the road a piece but the weather here has not cooperated!

So I decided to post something from sunnier, happier days and couldn't decided between fancy and simple architecture so I decided to share both.

This is the Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City. We went one very warm summer and enjoyed walking the boardwalk, the cool breezes and our favorite vacation activity - people watching. We only live about 6 hours from Atlantic City but I have only been the one time. I always love to see onion domes; these are the only ones I've seen that weren't on a church.

One of our most memorable vacations ever started out in the little cottage on the left. We traveled to Jamaica with our best friends and had some of our worst vacation hassles ever but since they were with us some of our best memories are also from here. I have no desire to ever visit Jamaica again but can't wait for our next vacation with friends.


  1. Oooooh Ooooh Ooooh!!! I've been Atlantic City and walked on the boardwalk! lol I even went into the Taj Mahal Casino...I went in all of them! hehe My friend Carol and I drove from here (Ontario) to Atlantic City (took us 18 hours) for a weeks' holiday and we had a ball! Unfortunately the casinos kept our money! lol

  2. Interesting buildings! I bet that cottage was a very memorable place to say, it looks so nice and quaint. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Wonderful barns are disappearing throughout Virginia - especially in Northern Virginia. One development that took over a large farm did turn theirs into a community center, but other barns, signs of more prosperous days, are just rotting away.

    The children of farmers are doing other things with their lives, and farms are being sold or auctioned off as the mom and pop's are dying. The era of the farmer, seems to be over in this area.

    All that is left is sprawl.

    It brings tears to my eyes.

  4. Yes, farms are a dying art. More and more farms are government-run. Certainly they are becoming more government-regulated. Did you all hear that the FDA has approved the cultivation of human-gene hybrid rice? They plan to plant the crops in Kansas. Our family has decided to eat no more rice! We don't appreciate being guinea pigs, nor do we desire to be cannibals. Plus, where do you think they are getting the human genes from?
