Spring Flowers at Hershey Gardens

After hearing about all my running around lately, my buddy +Craig Pike of MyRideisMe says to me, "Damn Bubba! Hope you have time to smell the roses sometimes!" Well there might not have been any roses blooming but there sure were a bunch of tulips popping up out of the ground when we slowed down just enough to enjoy all the wonderful springtime colors at Hershey Gardens.

Hershey Gardens is sandwiched between the Hotel Hershey and Hershey Park. It's a bit small at 23 acres so I wouldn't make it a destination trip. It is definitely well groomed and makes for a pleasant couple of hours. For a change, we spent more time strolling around then actually snapping photos. But, be sure to bring your camera when visiting so you can preserve some memories.

Hershey Gardens also has many wonderful trees. While many of these were also in bloom for our trip I was drawn more to the textures. I couldn’t resist poking my head into the new spring canopies to get a glimpse of the twisted trunks beneath.

So, listen to your friends every once in a while. Then find someone you love to slow down with and enjoy the flowers.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
