This is my post for the Our World meme.  This meme is a second generation of My World Tuesday created by Klaus Peter and is hosted by five wonderful ladies.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

In October, 2006, Betsy and I drove my parents to Winslow, Indiana, which was Mom’s hometown and the place where Mom and Dad met.  This picture was taken in front of the church in which Mom grew up.  If you look closely at the base of the sign you will see that it is ‘In Memory of Mr. & Mrs. James Cassidy’ — Mom’s parents and my grandparents.

There’s only one small problem — the family spelled their last name ‘CassidAy’!

Cades Cove is one of the most popular parts of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee.  The cove is a valley dotted with homesteads, churches, fields and woods.  It was turned into a living museum after the establishment of the park in the 1930s.  This picture was taken from Rich Mountain road leading out to Cades Cove.  If you look carefully you can see part of the loop road that takes visitors through the cove.

When going through some computer files the other day, I came across this photo of a nearly full moon in a blue sky.  It was taken in May, 2009, at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.  Since I misfiled it, I thought it deserved to be shared on Skywatch Friday.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

This is one of the few pictures that I got of both the American (foreground) and the Canadian (background) falls at Niagara.  If you look closely you can even see The Maid of the Mist in the river hear the Canadian Falls.

This picture was taken in 2002 from the state park on the American side of the river.
