52 Weeks of Susan's Life


Week 8 – #18 Movie Title (The Horse Whisperer)

horsewhisper-copybrwhhorsehorsepondcrop2Last evening the LWRDPC took a field trip to a nearby horse farm.  The property included a main house, beautiful barn, guest cottage, pond and spectacular acreage. The three horses were so well behaved and obviously well cared for.  Melody, the owner, was so gracious in her hospitality, allowing our camera club to roam freely and snap some photos.  One could tell by the manner in which the horses followed Melody around that she could rival the original “horse whisper”.


Week 7 – #15 Looking Up

Gap Town Clock. Gap PA

Gap Tower Clock, Gap PA

Not many grandparents would venture an 18 hour car trip with a 5 year old but that is exactly what we did.  Our son recently moved to Philadelphia (where we are from) and we wanted to take an extended trip there so driving was the best option.  I wasn’t sure how my grandson would do for all those hours in the car but the IPAD seemed to occupy him for hours on end.  When we got close to Philadelphia we decided to take a side trip to Strasburg PA to visit Thomas the Train.  Although I wasn’t terribly impressed with Thomas I did find some historic things to photograph.  Gap, PA has historic significance dating back to William Penn.  I managed to snap a photo of my grandson sitting on the “William Penn” rock.

The Gap Town Clock is where I found my image for “looking up”.  The Gap Clock Tower is about 40′ high.  I was standing directly underneath the tower and trying to get an angle on my camera for an upward image.  This tower was build in 1892 in Gap, PA where William Penn owned about 200 acres of property.  It’s quite an interesting town with a population of under 2000.
