Trip To The Beach

My friend Liz and I went to the beach for a day and a half. We stayed with other friends at Indian River Inlet campground. As soon as we arrived we went to the beach which is walking distance fro the campground.

It was picture postcard of a day!

Not long after... here comes Santa!!!

He liked to walk up the beach and then get into the water and float down to the jetty and do it all over again! Santa needs a vacation, too!!!

The group we were with and their grand kids!

Such a Beautiful Day!

The next day was not as beautiful,
but I got some nice photos as we took an
early morning stroll, thru the inlet an to the beach.
The Fishermen

"Look at my big fish" the happy fisherman said.

The rest are just some scenic shots of the ocean and bay.

It started to rain, and we decided to go home.

Arts-Fest at State College

This was our first trip to art-fest! But will not be my last! Every step lead to something unique and interesting. Yes, most things are expensive, looking is still free.

We went on Thursday, Wednesday was children's day and in a park the was some and sculptures started for the kids.
A Wrestler

A cool off station!!

Italian Street Art

Most was just started cause we were there on the first day.

Their chalk.

Now to my favorite artist, Sandra Russell. I have admired here work for a couple of years when I found her on ebay. A photographer who uses a polaroid camera. Visit her website for more info and to see her portfolio.
I did not know she was going to be there, so when I saw the photos I knew who it was but I couldn't remember her name. I talked to her for a bit and I knew I was going to buy something, but what I liked so many of her photos. Her things are reasonably priced. I decided on a rusty relic, Running on Empty a photo of an old gas pump.
Here is a better look at some of her photos, Happy Pup in the red truck is a very popular print of hers.

New Furniture

Here are some photos of the new furniture right after it arrived. The sofa is from Ashley Furniture and the chair and a half and ottaman from Value City Furniture. Most of the redecorating is done just needs the finishing touches.

The color is more correct in the sofa photo.

Fireworks at Penn State

The highlight of the weekend camping was of course the fireworks at Penn State. This is the first time we ventured in to see them, and is officially called 4Th Fest. They lasted 45 minuets and was synchronized to music on the radio.
