Tell me a Story: October 2018: Portland Part Two

I started off our Maine vacation with Tell me a Story and to be honest I have only reached day 2.  Saturday and we were in Portland.  If you did not read Portland Day 1 you can do so here.  Portland is a busy harbor town and I wish we had more time to explore it.  Our goal today was to go whale watching,…

Tell Me a Story: September 2018

Well the title this month seems apt to where I am going with my next few blogs.  I am telling a story.  On September 14, 2018, with just a single carry on bag and a camera bag each, we headed off on a whirlwind exploration of north east America.  By chance we were offered the use of a cottage in Wells Beach, Maine.  The…

Tell me a Story: July 2018

  Wow this month crept up fast and I was starting to get a bit panicky about if I was actually going to get anything for this months blog.  I have a doctors appointment every Friday and also a lot of works work to do on my day off.  This Friday was not different with the doctors appointment at 10:30am and apparently he was…

Tell me a Story: June 2018

I can hardly believe that we are halfway through the year already.  Seems like just the other day it was Christmas and we were rushing around with Amy and Daniel.  I was home alone and decided that I wanted to get out but not for too long.  The temperature outside is climbing, but even worse the humidity.  May and June have been very wet…

Tell me a Story: May 2018

For this months Tell me a Story, I looked at the images that I had taken on my recent walkabout in the wetlands.  As you know I love the shallow depth of field type images and so I put together a selection from those I took while out walking. I love that there is more to the wetlands than just birds and critters.  There…

Tell me a story: April 2018

Recently Richard and I decided we needed a break and we wanted to get away for a few days once again.  We have not gone for a while because of all my surgeries.  As you know we do a lot of camping with our pop up.  The only days we could get was a Wednesday to Friday so we took time off week and…

Tell me a story: March 2018

The Renaissance Fair is always a fun event to visit.  Lots of characters, lots of laughter, lots of beer.  It always fascinates me that folk who are just visiting often do so in character. There are so many interesting things to see and do.  Amy and I headed out there one weekend.  I had warned her that it would be a long day.  We…

Tell me a Story: February 2018

There are times in life when you just want solitude, and when I want solitude I go to where I know it will be quiet.  This week I headed to the sunset.  There are a few people there at night but it is so big that you can have the time alone to focus on your thoughts and still your mind. Each sunset is…

Tell me a Story: November 2017

Two weeks before I got clearance to go back to work after surgery, Richard decided to buy me a new car.  I was pretty excited about the car, but it stood in the driveway for 2 weeks without me driving it because I did not have clearance from the doctor to drive. The Friday before I started up work again he suggested that I…

Tell me a Story: August 2017

My blog is very simple this month.  I had surgery on both my feet 2 weeks ago and right now it is hard to focus on anything. Friday, prior to surgery, Richard and I took a drive down to Key West for an overnight stay.  I decided I would share the quaint guest house that we stayed at.  It was called Simonton Court.  It…
