Recently, well, okay, on April 8th, the third year of my Dad’s passing, we went to LaFayette to honor him and put his Veteran’s marker in the ground to get ready for the American flags the cemetery will put out on all of the Veterans’ grave sites. I didn’t take any more photos of his tombstone, because, well, I have a million of them already, and how many more do I need? But I did take this quick photo while we were driving up to his site, one of which I’ve taken before and I’ll take again and again, yes I will, because it’s where I grew up and I love the hills.

On the way to him, we always stop at one of my favorite Finger Lakes:
Skaneateles Lake, nice and calm, in the morning.
This lake’s water is awesomely clear:
Sherwood Inn, faces the lake:
We also stopped at a really cool quilt store where Mom bought some fabric for quilts she is making for sick children:
Yeah, did I mention how much I love the hills in Onondaga County?
Oh, before we got to Skaneateles, we had to go through Montezuma, where I did see Osprey, but couldn’t capture them, but did capture a couple of their nests:
Even though I still miss my Dad very much, I am very glad to be through all of the phases of grief, especially the anger part – that was a really tough one. Being really ticked off is very exhausting.
