Silos on the Farm

I love going on a road trip because I get to see the vast farm land.  It somehow remind  me of my childhood seeing the  farm land although it is very modern compared to what  I grew up with in my former country.  One of the many things I love seeing are the big Silos.  Below are some of the photos I took during our trip to Maryland.
Photos were taken  from Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.

Traveling By Water is Relaxing

If there's one thing I would like to have if given the  chance, is to have my own boat.  I grew up   in a coastal area so I am more comfortable traveling by water than driving a car.  There's something when you travel by  water that's relaxing.    Below is one of the photos my husband took when we visited my hometown back in the Philippines few years ago.  Looking at this picture makes me nostalgic and  wish I could go home and visit family.

Below are some photos I took during our  vacation in  Ocean City  in July this year.  Seeing the ocean  made us very excited.
I am so glad that we were able to  go on a vacation this year.  The kids needed it to relive the fun that they had when we had our  fun-filled vacation in  Texas last year.  Just seeing the ocean somehow relieved  my homesickness.  That's why I took a lot of photos  so I can take a look at them when I am homesick lol.

Traffic .. Lesson Learned from our Trip to Ocean City

We went to Ocean City, the day after the  4th of July .  We did not anticipate the big crowd that is going to Ocean City on that weekend.   Oh it was a pain because we were just inching along and it did not help that I had to go to the bathroom so bad.  The kids were  getting agitated as we were stuff in a heavy traffic for  over two hours.
I told my husband, never again we will come here  the day after the 4th of July or weekend for that matter.   We finally  broke through the traffic and saw the welcome sign.
 Even in the city, the  traffic was  so congested.  I betcha if it wasn't for the kids in the van, my husband would have said  sweet words already  because of frustration lol.
 After reaching the hotel we  stayed at, our children could not wait to go in the beach and enjoy the sand.
My husband was ten years old when he first saw Ocean City and he was in his teens  during his last visit.  He said that 30 years later did a lot of change to this place.  Smelling the ocean air reminds me of my hometown in the Philippines, it made me miss my family but glad to see the smiles in our children's faces.

Mounting Kits For Boat Lifts

People who want to put boat lifts in their boathouses need to make sure that they click here for more information. The boat lift itself is a singular unit, but there must be a mounting kit that helps to put the boat lift in any place in the boathouse. The boat lift helps to get boats out of the water safely, and the boat lift allows people to gingerly take their boats out of the water with relative ease.

The Kit

The mounting kits are meant to give the user an easy way to set up the boat lift. The mounting kit can be put in by someone who has no experience, but they need to make sure that they have the right tools for the job. Most people who are trying to take care of the boats need to put in the boat lift before they even conceive of putting their boat in the water.

The Usage

When people are trying to put these boat lifts into use, they need to be sure that they are working with the boat lift as softly as possible. Most people are going to use the boat lift harshly because they believe that the boat lift can stand up to the punishment. However, these boat lifts are meant to be used lightly to make sure that the boat is lifted from the water softly. Also, the boat must be lowered into the water with great care. The boat will last longer in this way, and the boat will not be damaged by accident.

The prongs on the boat lift can cause damage to the boat when it is being used harshly. The boathouse owner must understand how to use the lift, and they must have practiced to make sure they know what they are doing.

The best way to get boats in and out of the water is to make sure that the lift has been installed properly. Buying all the right tools and parts will allow people to get the most out of boats they own, and they will be able to offer this service to their neighbors.

Beautiful Houses

Going back from our Kennywood trip, we saw these beautiful houses on top of the hill.  I think some of these  are upscale rental houses but they are beautiful  to look  at from the road.  
I even captured their  email and contact number weee.  I like their company name, Summerset.    Pennsylvania is a high taxing state but you can see it from their infrastructure, they are well maintained and better than the state  that taxes their residents less.
