Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.
This past weekend, my husband and I traveled down to Long Island to attend the SCSS Conference at Kellenberg Memorial High School. The speakers were amazing, the food delicious. We left Sunday just ahead of Superstorm Sandy and made it home safely to Ontario.
1. Delaware Water Gap
As we drove down to Long Island, we passed through the beautiful Delaware Water Gap which is near the border of PA and NJ. Pictures don’t capture the beauty of this place.
2. Beautiful Birds
Kellenberg High School (the venue for the conference) is home to many beautiful birds: parrots, peacocks and smaller birds.
3. Holy Family Monument
Kellenberg also has some beautiful statues and sculptures like this one of the Holy Family.
We were a little disappointed that we didn’t get to see any of the famous landmarks of NYC and we only saw the city from a distance. We had planned on possibly going to Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty but that was before the storm predictions so we hightailed it out of Long Island early Sunday morning ahead of the storm.
My presentation wasn’t quite as well-attended as the one at the CWCL in Texas, but the people who were there were very responsive and enthusiastic.
