July 2015 - AAAAA

There were no photos taken in June.  Sorry for having disappointed you!

Here are the photos taken in July.  The photos were taken July 4th in Pennsylvania (Doylestown,
Morrisville and  Easton).  The trip was titled, "Old Fashioned July 4th Celebration & Seafood Buffet".  
The Celebration was boring!!  The worst experience with L&M.  The Celebration was for children
and their parents.   And, I wasn't thrilled much by the
Mercer Castle (Fonthill).  We also made a quick
stop at the
Garden of Reflection, a 9-11 Memorial, located in Memorial Park in Morrisville, Bucks County.  
The food at the buffet was good and plentiful.

On July 20th, a friend and I went on the National St. Rita of Cascia and The Miraculous Medal Shrines
Tour with L&M.  It was a very rewarding  and inspirational tour.  The churches the shrines are in are
beautiful, spectacular!!  This tour took us to Philadelphia.   I highly recommend this tour.

There are a few photos included that have nothing to do with the tours mentioned above.
