Damn this weather.

by on Oct.28, 2010, under Uncategorized

The grounds at the South Carolina Capitol are beautiful. I wish the weather would allow me more time to snoop around. I apologize for parking illegally, but Georgia made me angry.

Try adding some parking.

by on Oct.28, 2010, under Uncategorized

After driving around the Georgia Capitol for 30 minutes trying to find a place to park, I finally parked and walked inside. There was military ceremony going on, so I kept quiet. I was able to get a few shots before I left.

Good morning, Atlanta.

I didn’t get much sleep because of an accident that happened at the motel last night. There was a lot of noise. At least I am not the person that caused this…

I guess I didn’t miss much of a game. It’s raining here. Glad to get that out of the way early. I am looking forward to a nice day on the road tomorrow. I will be visiting the capitols of GA, SC, and NC.

Time for another trip

by on Oct.27, 2010, under Uncategorized

I am about to jump on a plane heading for Atlanta. This weekend I will be visiting GA, NC, SC, VA, WV, OH, KY, and TN. I had no idea I should have scheduled around the World Series. It’s a nice problem to have though.

Stars lose

Stars blew a lead and lost in overtime. The games count for real next week. Time to go home. I am on my way back to Dallas.

Lucky me

After checking online to see what is going on in St. Louis, I found out that the Dallas Stars are in town to play the Blues. Good seats still available. 30 bucks got me this close to the ice. For $50 I would get to play. I am too tired.

Home of Lincoln

by on Oct.02, 2010, under Uncategorized

After visiting so many capitols that paid homage to Lincoln, it was nice to actually visit the state that claims him as their own. I made a quick stop to visit the grounds of Lincoln’s house. Very impressive. An Islamic man asked me which house it was, and I was kind enough to tell him. He didn’t look like he planned to do harm.
The next stop was up the street at the capitol building. It was closed of course, but I walked the grounds and took some photos. I didn’t realize that I parked illegally, but fortunately I discovered my mistake before I caused a traffic jam. My bad, Springfield.

Oh, Madison…

I wish I had the time to write you a love letter. I am sorry our encounter was so brief.
The has been one of my favorite stops. I was fortunate to visit on a day there was a farmers market going on right on the grounds. A hundred or so local farmers brought in all kinds of goods. I purchased some local maple syrup, but the find of the day was the freshly made cheese curds. The free samples were a mistake, Mr. Farmer.

Leaving Lansing

by on Oct.01, 2010, under Uncategorized

It looks like everyone else is to. The Capitol had closed just as I arrived, so I was only able to get some outside shots. All that way for 5 minutes? Oh well. Chicago will make it all better. See you in Chi-town.
