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…

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…
