The Poconos

I think I will share a few photos taken while in the Poconos, PA. Above is the condo where we stayed. It was on three levels! Below are the steps we had to climb up to get to the condo!! (No elevator!) Can you say EXERCISE!!

Below is a picture of the Shawnee Inn which was nearby, we had several meals here and when to The Three Tenors concert here. I really like this historic inn. Click on the highlighted area for photos. They had many framed photos of celebrities who used to visit here regularly - President Eisenhower, Bob Hope, Ed Sullivan, etc. Click here for history of Shawnee Inn.

The Shawee Inn sits on the Delaware River. Below is Joe in front of the river.


Here I am. Joe wanted to canoe down the river, but I declined!

He leadeth me beside the still waters. Ps. 23:2
I really like this picture of Joe, below!
Today I started getting back into my routine, went to our Faith Sharing Group this morning.

Would you believe there is another tropical storm headed toward us!?? At church yesterday we were told to pray boldly, well I guess praying against storms is pretty bold! That's what I'm doing! Not just for our area, but for all the poor people who are still flooded from the last storm, I don't know what another storm would do to them. My daughter had more wind/rain and damage than they expected in Tallahassee (west FL.) They lost power for 25 hours, and their yard is still flooded, a few leaks inside their house, and some damage to their new wooden floors!
I hate to ask you for prayers again......but, we need them!!

Thank you!

I'm glad to see that there are still some beautiful, peaceful areas in the Poconos. I hate the that gambling casinos have invaded there.

I thought of you this morning when I saw the national weather. I'm praying that Gustav will go out to sea without doing anyone harm.

What a rockin' condo! Did you have breakfast out on the deck every morning? What a perfect place for tea. Can't wait to see the inside.

Isn't it odd why some get so much rain while others so little. We are getting some today in SC, that we badly need. My Mom in FL has gotten about 7 to 10 " so far and not real flooding.
Hope you stay safe.

Whew, those were a lot of steps! I like that pic of Joe on the bench too.
No, I don't think I'd canoe down that big river,uh-uhh!

Sorry you've been dealing with all the storms. This has been a crazy year for weather. I'm scared to see what winter is going to bring!

Katherine,

Great post and beautiful photos. I will keep all of those in line of the hurricanes and tropical storms in my prayers.

Blessings,
Mary
