Several years ago I went to visit my sister when she was living in Sioux Falls. I only spent half a day in the city before heading to Rapid City and it was drizzling the entire time.
We spent an afternoon in the Badlands.
One morning we got up early and went to Mount Rushmore and drove around the area including Custer State Park.
The funniest thing back then was seeing the soda machine in the bathroom.
This was way to easy. A permanently injured eagle at Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park. Whoever added the flag on the back fence was a genius.
Mount Rushmore several years ago with my sister who lives in nearby Sioux Falls.
Bay Pines National Cemetery in St. Petersburg Florida where members of the Armed Forces are buried. My parents are here. My dad was in WW2.
My cousin and his family are all in the Tampa Bay Water Ski show. This is the opening from their free shows every Saturday afternoon.
Practicing fireworks before dark in the neighborhood.
I found this flag hanging on a wall in a tourist shop in Tarpon Springs. It’s made of shells and starfish.
A very young bald eagle learning to fly.
A bald eagle souring across the sky.
I was looking through some older folders of a flag picture to post for today and came across all of the above. I couldn’t decide which one to post so I added all of them. All reminders of the summer season. From Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.
