Snapshot Saturday~March 16

While I was in Florida, I was having trouble posting photos to my blog.  The most obvious loss in all of that was Snapshot Saturday.  I really enjoy participating and I missed it.  Be sure to go to At Home With Books, Alyce’s terrific blog to see all of the other wonderful photos being shared today.

While in Florida, Gail and I went to Heritage Village.  It’s a wonderful place where old buildings from all over Florida have been moved to create a wonderful living museum.

When we were in the old school-house, there was a wonderful old map on the wall dated 1909.  Of course, I was drawn to the Southwest and New Mexico.  New Mexico did not become a state until 1912.  It took some searching because the state boundary wasn’t there and old print was pretty dim, but…



Sure as Shootin’ as my Mom used to say, there’s Silver City.  The place I long to be.  The place I’ll be going soon if all the stars align properly.  I’m looking forward to it which I suppose you can tell since I talk about it so much.

Don’t forget to go over to At Home With Books to check out the other great snapshots for today.

Happy Snapshot Saturday!

  8. The map is beautiful, and a heritage site where old buildings are preserved is such a good idea – there are places here in England like that, kind of living museums I suppose, and they are always interesting. My Snapshot is at
