Tell me a story: March 2019

Epcot by night, that was my goal.  There was a stage show I wanted to see and the fireworks display was a must.  That said we had walked Epcot all day.  My son and daughter-in-law had left as she was struggling with fatigue as a result of psoriatic arthritis which leaves her struggling in pain.  The rest of us were pretty tired as well. …

Tell me a Story: February 2019

I have not been for a walk in the wetlands for a long while, so this past week I decided to head over to the local cay for a 2 mile walk.  While it is always nice to photography the birds I do like to photograph the different styles of nature.  This day there was some beautiful bokeh, interesting lights, and cute little critters. …

Tell me a Story: January 2019

It January and my story this month is about the new additions to our family.  Not mine, but Amy’s and Daniel’s.  So I guess that makes them grandkits. At the end of November a friend sent a text to Amy and me asking with we wanted the little black and white cat.  She had found it crying in the parking lot.  The next day…

Tell Me a Story: November 2018: Heading back to Portland

Well it looks like WordPress has made some changes to it’s layout so hopefully I will get this write. This month for Tell me a Story, I am picking when I left off at the last blog.  If you read it you will know that my whale watching expedition was a total failure and we were plagued by fog.  I am picking up from…

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…
