Z is for Z’end

As the 2016 Blogging from A to Z Challenge comes to a close, I sincerely thank everyone who looked at, liked, commented upon, and shared my posts on this and my other two blogs (DiscoveringHome.com and SinclaireMonroe.com),  with friends, family and fellow-bloggers.

I know that I have thoroughly enjoyed discovering your blogs. I have been impressed with your creativity, and inspired by your talent. Thank you.

Below are some shots that I especially like, even if many were previously posted during this month-long-blog-a-thon. I hope you enjoy these pictures – and I hope you stop by again.

R is for Rising Sun, Indiana

Along the Ohio River some of the prettiest river towns in the country are just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed.

Rising Sun is an excellent example of a small town with a big view.

r Rising Sun Park

This friendly town, registered in 1816, is easily found just 40 miles west of Cincinnati and about 100 miles south of Indianapolis.

The Ohio County Historical Society invites visitors – and residents – to learn about Rising Sun, and the surrounding area. Stop by for Quiltfest, or stand next to hydroplane racing treasures like the Hoosier Boy.

A walking-friendly place with buildings on Main Street dating back to 1832, this is an ideal destination for architecture buffs, history geeks – and couples looking for an opportunity to hold hands and stroll.

Home to Heritage Hall, the Empire House Hotel , as well as the Rumpe House,  beautiful Rising Sun offers a special venue for memorable events, comfortable and charming accommodations, or even a new home – all within walking distance to the picturesque and history-rich Ohio River.

Take the scenic drive down US56 to arrive at a river state of mind in Rising Sun.

H is for Homerun – Vintage Baseball

Warm sun, fragrant grass, faint breeze; just another easy going afternoon – until the snap of the bat, the cheer from the crowd, the thrill of the game!

Vintage baseball is the perfect combination of good sportsmanship and exciting competition. Following mid-nineteenth century rules, teams comprised of neighbors and friends play in open fields and at historic sites throughout the United States and Canada.

It’s more than the winning or losing – vintage ball is about the playing of the game, the camaraderie, the fun of being outside on a (usually) sunny afternoon –
