Some pictures and commentary from our road trip to New York.
Encountered a wandering imp named David in Springfield, MO who eagerly joined in our roadside yoga in a lovely shaded park near the zoo.

One of the greatest speeches ever only took a few minutes and the speech was considered unadorned and ordinary at the time. Now it rings forth like a clarion of truth.The poet Walt Whitman was shaped by the Civil War. Our first roller coaster of the vacation waiting in line at Hershey Park, PA. This wasn’t Zingo. I pulled a muscle and busted the funny bone on my elbow. And that was just while putting mustard on my bratwurst.
What a gorgeous little town. Shortly after we stopped at a pick em yourself strawberry farm and bought several berry pies and picked several pints of strawberries.
