About this morning.

After a vigorous workout in a gym I needed relaxation. I found this old post and happy to share it with you.

However, something strange happened to the reblog. Please immediately go to the original.


About Pocono Manor.

What is Pocono Manor?

Wikipedia says: “Pocono Manor is an unincorporated community in Monroe CountyPennsylvaniaUnited States, located at approximately latitude 41.1 and longitude -75.359, at an elevation of 1,706 feet, on Pennsylvania State Highway 314 east of Pocono Summit and west of Swiftwater.[1] It is the location of a resort and golf course called The Inn at Pocono Manor, with a Donald Ross-designed golf course,[2] site of the Pocono Northeast Classic; and of the Pocono Manor Historic District.”

We are now in Pocono Manor and it is clear that the definition above is not very good.

First of all, there is the Carriage House in Pocono Manor. It is an independent time-sharing property.

Secondly, there are many private houses (the Cottage Colony).

Thirdly, until last year there were two 18-holes golf courses. Currently one course is intact and the other has only three holes (see below).

In 2013 a part of Pocono Manor bought by the family owned Kalahari Resorts. It started on the territory of the western golf course construction of the largest in the world indoor water park, a huge convention center, a separate outdoor water park and other facilities. You can read about Kalahari in Pocono Manor HERE.

It is very interesting how Pocono Manor was born and progressed. You can read about it HERE, see views of the Inn at Pocono Manor and read about its operations.

Today I want to show you my photos of two houses on the Manor Drive (it is a major asphalt road in Pocono Manor). Near the Inn Manor Drive is very narrow (one way traffic). Some houses are on a hill above the drive and houses on the other side of it are below the drive.

Several quotes about summer.

I believe that summer is our time, a time for the people, and that no politician should be allowed to speak to us during the summer. They can start talking again after Labor Day.

Lewis Black

Both the Winter and the Summer Solstices are expressions of love. They show us the opposition of light and dark, expansion and contraction, that characterize our experiences in the Earth school so that we can recognize our options as we move through our lives.

Gary Zukav

Summer is the time when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all’s right with the world.

Ada Louise Huxtable

Summer is like the ultimate one-night stand…hot as hell, totally thrilling, and gone before you know it.
