Well, were you wondering where on earth I was and also who the winner of Quilt Album might be?
To answer the first question, the hubs and I had scheduled a little getaway to Salt Lake City. I apologize for not letting any of my wonderful Utah blogging friends know, but the hubs and I really needed this little getaway. Haven't had one in a while. I must say it was refreshing, all except trying to get home.
Long story short, Sunday flights were canceled due to Hurricane Irene. They rebooked us for Thursday. Huh? So the hubs and I decided to find another flight, but that meant we had to drive to Denver so we could come home on Tuesday. And we made it and had some fun along the way.
Also, everything is good here. Just a power outage, no phone, and no internet. All is now restored.
So, a small tour of where we were...
The organ in the Morman Tabernacle. Just amazing, 14,000 pipes. And we were treated to some music too!
Gorgeous flowers everywhere.
Get a load of these things. Don't they look like giant whiskers? We had gone to a restaurant for dinner and these were just outside. They are basically giant stiff rubber hoses stuck in the ground.
Saw some of these... gorgeous quilts!
Treated again to some music via bagpipe. Very cool!
You know that song... give me a home where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play?? Well, who knew that Utah had both on Antelope Island. It is an Island in the middle of the Great Salt Lake so we drove there. Take a look...
I used a zoom for sure. I would never attempt to get that close to this guy.
And the Antelope were keeping themselves cool in the water. Hopefully next time I am out in Utah, I can meet up with some of my wonderful Utah blogging friends. What a wonderful state you have! More to come on the next blog post... HINT... QUILTS!
Oh, I almost forgot, the Quilt Album Winner...
