Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Kaufmann residence in 1935 for a family from Philadelphia.  It is a marvelous place to visit. Located in a woodsy location  in southwest Pennsylvania, it has recently undergone restoration. Read about it. See link below.

When we went there, there were many photographers. It is considered one of the most important works of American architecture. We learned that Wright designed all the furniture inside and he even wanted to design the clothes for the lady of the house.    Wikipedia on Falling Water

AL JOLSON.  He might as well be singing about Fallingwater in the morning. Butterflies, morning dew , buttercups and morning glories–they’re there too.

Ocean Grove boards on Oct. 1, 2017: bikes and dogs allowed whenever. Dogs can also go on the beach.   A woman with blue hair—am I blue?    Paul Goldfinger photo. ©  Click image to enlarge the picture.

Notice the sign. In big letters it says WARNING!!!  NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY.  Isn’t that enough warning for those who might consider swimming?  So why do we need 3 exclamation points?  We don’t need even one. There is a limit to how effective that sign will be.  Recently we heard from a surfer dude who wants red flags to be posted when the water is dangerous.   But maybe this sign is more than enough to try and discourage dopey daredevils.

And the sign says “No Diving!”  Is there any way  anyone could dive down at this beach.  I suppose someone might walk over to the pier and dive in, but if anyone is so inclined, the little message on the bottom of this sign is not likely to be influential. And besides, it’s all sand under there. Maybe the sign should also say, “Don’t stick your head in the sand!!!”

The lady with blue hair smiled at us as she went by, but she was moving fast, and we don’t know why she smiled or why she has blue hair in Ocean Grove.   This is a rare sighting here, but maybe she was going to Asbury to attend a meeting of the Blue Hair Society.

And the girl on the bike?  She was on the beach and came up to get her bike—seemingly caught between the seasons.
