I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” or “SYW” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.


What is the most famous landmark or building you have ever seen?  Most recently the most famous landmark I’ve seen is the Seattle Space Needle in Washington State.  The Space Needle is an observation tower in Seattle, Washington, a landmark of the Pacific Northwest, and an icon of Seattle. It was built in the Seattle Center for the 1962 World’s Fair, which drew over 2.3 million visitors, when nearly 20,000 people a day used its elevators.  I was actually at the World’s Fair that year, although I was only two years old.

I have also seen the faces at Mt Rushmore in South Dakota when I was about 5 and again in my early 20s.

Do you like long vacation or lots of mini-vacations?

At this point in my life, I will go with lots of mini-vacations.  Three to five days is a comfortable amount of time for me right now.

What is your favorite National or State Park?  This is a real hard one for me.  I love parks.  I’ve been to the cliff dwellings in New Mexico, Painted Desert and Grand Canyons in Arizona, Mount St Helens in Washington, Redwoods in California just to name a few.  I’ve also been to he Great Lakes and lived along the North Shore in Minnesota (Lake Superior).  I lived near the Rocky Mountains of Colorado for years.  There is no way I can begin to pick a favorite.  I think it would be fun to visit all of my country’s State Parks.

What is your fantasy vacation?  My fantasy vacation would be retirement.  Chris and I are within a couple of years.  We want a small travel trailer that is easy to pull and just take off for a month or so.  Come home and chill out and start all over again.  Travel the US and maybe Canada.  Anywhere there is trees and water.  We both love the outdoors.  This way we can relax and chill out and see things we want to see.  And we would avoid big cities and crowds.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  Last week was a fun week.  I finished typesetting a book for my qigong instructor.  You all know I went to the Rebecca’s concert.  I had a great iris photo op in my own yard with the iris.  Thing are going well.

This week will be a little quieter but should be enjoyable as well.

  1. I think your fantasy vacation sounds wonderful. Traveling with a home away from home, very nice. I’m glad you had such a good week and I wish you another 🙂


  2. I don’t think anyone could play favorites with the National Parks. Each one is so special and in its own way, beautiful. We are doing very short vacation these days until we can figure out how to work out a long one. The dogs are a really serious limitation.

  3. Love the idea of your fantasy vacation… head out to wherever you’d like to go and then come back recover and head out again… sounds like a perfect plan 🙂


  4. I think the Seattle Space Needle is cool. We have never been that far west or north. Maybe some day we will. You can view my post here.


      1. The thing is to get something that suits you. We did roof top tenting when we were younger. When we retired we bought an off-road caravan which was great up until my hubby had his hear operation. He now requires something that is easy to put up and take down. We’ve sold our caravan and are getting one that is more comfortable and easier to put up. We’re getting it in November.


        1. Oh I bet you are excited to get your new trailer. We keep going back and forth on hard sided or tent sided. We like the feel of outdoors, that is why I think we may go with the tent trailer. We’ve got a year or so to decide.

    1. I wasn’t that impressed. Let me put that another way, it is so big and open, it is hard to grasp the enormity of it. The average time it takes for people to park to get a view is like an hour. The average visitor looks for 8 minutes.

      1. Well I can imagine that happening, as I would have quite high expectations of the place based on all the photos I’ve seen! Kind of like what happens to many people when they visit Paris.
