The High King Lives

The Columbus River Walk and Heritage Park June 23, 2015

Hello dear ones! Columbus Ga has a beautiful River walk. There are historical sites in downtown right above the River Walk. Our family (including my mom and stepdad) explored the area including Heritage Park. Enjoy the pics!

Columbus, Ga was a center during the Civil War. There are cannons and other neat historic markers on the sidewalk above the River Walk.

Then you can take the stairs or a ramp down to the actual River Walk. It’s a great place to ride bikes, and there are a couple amphitheaters. We had a preacher invite us to church at the outdoor amphitheater. Sadly, we didn’t get to go.

Michael finally got better at his bike this year. So we let him ride along the River Walk.

After, we walked across the road to the Heritage Park. It’s near the Columbus Coca Cola Space and Science Center. There’s a replica of Columbus’ dam and several statues honoring Columbus’ different industry workers.

Virtual Friday: Picturesque Castle #1 Valhal August 31, 2012

Hello friends 🙂 well, I know it’s been a little while but the last Virtual Friday I showed you a few shops I like to go to and I also gave you hints of this next journey. Today we are exploring Valhal. Valhal is number one on our picturesque castles list. Basically this is a beautiful place to take pictures.  One of the main reasons I love SecondLife is because of the user created scenery.  Enjoy the pics :). You may remember this dress from Larnia. I modeled it last time. It was perfect for these shots.

Visit VALHAL (37, 50, 46)

Valhal had a few lovely spots for dancing.  I was of course by myself so I had to dance with my dolly lol. It made for interesting pictures.

Dancing Alone….

I just love all the mist. Remember you can click on the pics to see them better 😉

Another lovely pic of the mist

As it got darker I ventured toward the castle…

There’s an interesting statue of a knight and a dragon.

Lastly, I took a rest and enjoyed the night sky 🙂

Well, God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
