On an August Sunday, our son and grandsons were on opposite sides of the United States. Photos show a great contrast of urban living and wilderness splendor.
We went to church in Tryon because we were there once before and enjoyed the traditional Lutheran service chanted by the Pastor. We walked to the edge of the parking lot to see the lovely stream that runs behind the church. It’s a good thing I couldn’t see it from the sanctuary, or I would have been greatly distracted. We had lunch in Landrum, SC, and I took a photo of David and Nathaniel. David drove himself back home to work, and we took Nathaniel to Charlotte.
Would you like to see pictures of his dorm? He worked at the university all summer and has just moved to the suite he will share with three others when the next term starts. I’m sure you can label the photos yourself – shots from the kitchen, the living room, his bedroom, and the balcony.
Johnson & Wales has an urban campus, smack dab in the downtown area. Nathaniel’s suite is on the seventh floor. Neat Nate had everything put away in the kitchen. The living room will come to life when the others bring in a TV and decorative items. Everything is in place in his bedroom. I wish I’d taken a shot of his closet where clothing is sorted – cooking clothes on one side and civilian clothes on the other. The balcony photo speaks for itself. Nathaniel will share a bathroom with another fellow. Two bedrooms and a bathroom mirror theirs on the other side of the kitchen. The four students will share a washing machine and dryer in the common area. This bears almost no relation to my college experience of dorm living.
Now for the contrast. Look at John $pencer’s temporary quarters in Washington. He was studying a map. They spoke of being surrounded by goats one night and thankful Sadie didn’t bark.
Rose took a picture of $ and Sadie on the trail. With a little imagination I can see my son, but I can’t find Sadie.
$’s joy is visible as Rose had him pose with a glacier. They heard low noises while camping near the glacier and are wondering if glaciers make sounds. Does anyone know?
