St Paddy's Day Golf

The weather here in Philadelphia was absolutely gorgeous today.  Pure sun and temperatures in the 60's.  So we decided to take full advantage of it and went golfing.

I love to golf.   I like being outdoors and it's a great way to let go of stress.  The only downside is keeping up with play because some golfers are fast, and so if the course is crowded you really have to move at a quick pace. 

And I enjoy playing with my man because he always gives me great tips and usually we have a good laugh over some crazy shot one of us usually has.  Just a great way to spend the day.

Oh and maybe people who are not from Pennsylvania will find this interesting the golf course sits right by a nuclear power plant.  In fact, I took a photo of the view from the course of it.  It is an strange feeling seeing one of those. Plus the golf course was literally but in the middle of a new housing development. 

So we were  driving our golf cart literally a few feet from someones house.   The golf cart paths actually go right through the neighborhood roads, so you drive through one neighbors side and pick it up on the other side of the road.  There is no way those houses are taking afternoon naps during the summer, not with the sound of golf carts whipping around.  Too funny.

Given today is St. Patrick's Day I'm sporting my Irish Princess T Shirt, as I am half Irish.  Though not really much of a drinker, and I think that has something to do with being small.  Like the taste of beer but just never been into that whole buzz or get drunk feeling which I pretty much feel after one or two drinks. So I just celebrate the holiday by wearing green or eating Irish food.

In honor of Saint Patrick's Day here's an Irish Blessing! 

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.
