More snow

Who would have thought that we would travel to Maryland and have snow? Really beautiful snow? It snowed about 4 inches and then turned to freezing rain. By late afternoon the trees were covered with sticky wet snow and sealed with ice. It was so beautiful that I took a few photos.

We passed the day with a tour of the local shops. In the Barnes and Nobel bookstore one of the clerks asked me why I was out and about on such a bad weather day. Clearly she was wishing she didn’t have to be at work. She hadn’t considered that we might be staying at the hotel down the street and that we were out without our car. I thanked her for coming into work so that we could enjoy the store. We purchased several titles.

We also went to see a movie: “Amazing Grace”. It was excellent and I highly recommend it. It is the story of William Wilberforce and his fight against slavery in Britain.

Today was a trip to the National Aquarium in Baltimore with our dear friend Mary. What a great day we had! Since I was there the last time, they’ve added a new Australian exhibit complete with birds, fish and reptiles – and fruit bats. Too bad they were hanging from the high ceiling and too far away to get a really good look. There was also a great exhibit of frogs. These were hard to photograph because of very low light levels, but here are a few of the ones I held still enough for so you won’t get dizzy.

Can you tell I really like frogs? Of course, it was wonderful to see all the regular animals and fish and to enjoy the rain forest. We watched the divers feed the rays and a worker try to get the octopus to eat. What a marvel of diversity we saw. What a creative God we have.
