Here’s a photo of some incredible 1940′s “Trail Rider’s” diaries that I have in my collection. I hope to blog about them one day soon but I have to get through them first. They have to do with a group of friends who take several horseback trips through the Rocky Mountains. There are fabulous original photos to go with these diaries too. However for now, check out my 29th Century Diaries page as I’m starting a blog about one couples trip to Hawaii in 1923. Lots of photos to go with that diary too. Enjoy…..
This is a video my son put together for me. We’ll see if it works here. If you can’t acess it I might have not loaded it right. I’ve always loved the ocean and so I wanted to film mostly ocean scenes. I’m also in love with the Titanic and all she represents. So just a year ago this month I was blessed to have been able to take the 100 year anniversary cruise and sail over the wreck of the Titanic exactly the time she sunk (to the very hour) 100 years previous. These videos were just taken with my small camera but they represent such incredible memories; seeing the Azamara for the first time, the view from our room, the fabulous New York harbor as we were leaving, the decks we all called home, the incredible night of the sinking with the Balormal next to us, and finally leaving the site early that morning with the sun following us. All of the scenes are as we were heading towards her in the middle of the North Atlantic, then as we were right over the ship and finally (and sadly), on our way home. Enjoy…..
Well, I just added a new blog. It’s the one I’ve been using on my diaries facebook page but decided to continue it here and not facebook for the simple reason that I know I’m covered by wordpress as far as copyright issues and with facebook I don’t think I am. It’s one of my favorite diaries in my private collection. For those of you who haven’t read any of it on facebook, it’s all about a woman in 1934 who meets a man at a New Years Eve party. It takes her several months and some crazy situations to finally realize that he’s a New York Gangster whose responsible for several murders; he and his family. It’s a facinating diary and you can read it by clicking onto the “20th Century Diaries” line on the right hand side of this page under ‘BLOGROLL”. It’s going to be a little different too then a regular Blog because I just wrote most of the diary in one sitting instead of weekly blogs. However, that particular blog’s entries stops on October 28th as that was the last diary entry I posted from on facebook. However I will continue on with her entries (which will of course show up at the top of the blog page) within a few days. Hope I’m making sense. I’ve also been adding new entries to the 1881 travel diary and the 1927 grief diary. Enjoy
I’ve been posting from my 1881 diary which was written by 13 year old Ernestine. She’s just leaving the port of Gibraltar and heading to Genoa Italy on board her fathers ship. You can find all her entries by clicking into “19th Century Travel Diaries” under the BLOGROLL on the right hand side of this page. Happy New Year to you all.
Well, I finally got my 3rd blog site finished. You can find it on the right hand side of this blog under “BLOG ROLL” and the title of it is “19th Century Travel Diaries”. Just click into that link to start our next adventure. That adventure of course is shared with us because of 14 year old Ernestine Hassenstein and her 1881 private diary. I’ve posted a few things on this new site but will post Ernestine’s first entry in a day or two. Enjoy……..
