Road Trip!

Last Monday was my *cough*st birthday so R and I took a trip up to Maine to visit friends and do some touring along the touristy spots – here are a few photos from our trip:

Maine 2013

As you can see, I overdose on lobster rolls. It’s a good thing we only do it once a year! ;o) My favorite? The one I get on the first night. Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster makes a wicked good lobstah roll!



Hi all! I’ve been busy (I know, I’ve been saying that for years now, I’m sorry) so I haven’t been posting regularly and I’m sorry. I really do think about blogging but I can never seem to carve out the time. At least I do updates now and then and I don’t overload you with ‘look! bags!’ photos all the time. ;o)

This time I’m going to overload you with ‘look! fireworks!’ photos – we just returned from a week in LaPorte, IN at the 2012 PGI Convention!

Here is a slideshow for you:

If you click the ‘full screen’ icon at the lower right and then click ‘show info’ at the upper right, you will see my photo descriptions. Also, full screen? Very cool photos if I do say so myself. ;o)

Those photos with Roger, Dave and our friend Paul are not photoshopped – I took them while live shells were going off behind them. Pretty cool, yes? You also get to see photos of the setup of the ‘Mega’ and ‘Super’ String of firecrackers – 3+million firecrackers all lit off at once!

I did some spinning while we were there:

and even some knitting!

 

I also visited a Great Lake!

I couldn’t be so close and not actually touch it. ;o) Okay it’s back to work for me – the shop reopens on Friday!



…Eye Candy:

Have a great weekend, everyone!

…on Sunday.  I hope you don’t mind that it’s late, but I had to wait until it was nice and dark out to take these shots.

The Badlands in South Dakota

The Badlands in South Dakota...

We drove through the Badlands tonight on our way home and noticed how cool everything looked under the full moon.  After we set up our camper at tne KOA, we drove back and pulled out the camera and tripod.  ;o)

How did I do this?  I put the aperture at f4.0 and held the shutter open for 20 seconds each shot.  These shots are the coolest photos I’ve taken so far – and are my personal favorite.  They kind of make me feel like I’m getting the hang of this…  ;o)

…but you’ll get eye candy anyway.  ;o)  Here is a shot from tonight’s show:

Friday Fireworks
