TheBig Road Tripof the USA is in New Jersey this week.I have learned where it was located and visiting some of the places like The Jersey Shore which was so devastated in the hurricane last year. I didn't know that the Meadowlands, home of both The New York Giants and the New York Jets, was in New Jersey.
My first thought was The Jersey Boys. I saw the show , a tribute to the music of Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons in London and it has been a top favourite on my i-pod ever since. From the show I knew that Frankie had been born in New Jersey.
In my wanderings I found that the State Flower of New Jersey was the Violet which is one of my favourite flowers to using the technique from here I made this and gave it a digital frame.
Layers of Creativity for guiding us round. Delaware next, no guide so far so I hope someone comes forward or we will get hopelessly lost.
Thanks for the memories, Pat. :-) A couple of decades ago my late DH and I saw the real Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in performance in Calgary (AB). Fantastic! They're perennial favourites of mine, for certain.
Thanks for your wonderful blogpost, following the BIG Road Trip. I will add your link to the NJ-2 blogpost. Still no guide for Delaware so I will have to dive into the tourist guides this weekend to find interesting spots... we might go by bike this time... I could do with some excercise...
The Jersey Shore did get hit hard by the hurricane. You brought back some great memories mentioning Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons - they are a classic now. Their music always makes you feel good.
