Graduation in Hermann, Missouri — 15 Comments

  1. Personally I love to see a working harbour/river in action. My knowledge of Missouri is limited to pioneering books I read as a child like Little on the Prairie and later, Centennial. It looks just as wide as a muddy as I pictured it. The light makes it look almost romantic though 🙂

  2. Congratulations to your nephew. I’ve never heard the word salutatorian- is that the same as valedictorian? I like your dramatic light shot of the Missouri.

    • I learned all about the word salutatorian this week…Valedictorian is the top in the class and salutatorian is second, but that’s not what the words mean. Salutatorian is related to the word salute and that person traditionally gives the first speech at the graduation. The valedictorian is related to a word for ending, and that person gives the last speech.

  3. Congratulations to your nephew on his graduation. And thank you for sharing these gorgeous pictures. They’re all so romantic! I’ve never been to Missouri, myself but these pictures make me want to visit.

    If you’d like to see it, my entry for this week’s Saturday Snapshot is here.

  4. Beautiful photos. I love the lighting in the picture of the gazebo — so romantic. I can see why weddings are held there. I’m sure your nephew was delighted that you were a part of his graduation. Congratulations to him for becoming salutatorian. Quite an achievement!

  5. Congratulations to Alex, and thanks for posting the beautiful pics. On our annual summer vacation to see Mom’s family in Oklahoma, we had two or three different routes do get down to Interstate 44, but my favorite was taking Highway 19 because of Hermann. I always thought it looked kind of like Louisiana, just a different big river.
