Antietam Battlefield, originally uploaded by Alida's Photos.

This is the battlefield of Antietam. My husband was always interested in the Civil War and recently found out his great-great grandfather fought in the battle of Antietam.

We went there this weekend and met distant family members, third cousins, not one of which would be here today if great, great-grandfather Allen McLane died in this battle.

Rita's Rest: a Ford "Woodie"

Scene at the Sayville parking lot on a summer evening, where everyone stops by to take a look at the bay.
Hot night, hazy sky and some after-dinner "hanging out" with friends.

This old car (plate says 1948) is a Ford "woodie" station wagon.
It also has a plate that says, "Rita's Rest" from West Sayville, NY, but I could not find anything searching google with that reference.
