Share Six: November 2018: Silhouette

This month is one of my favorite themes.   Katherine of Cobert Photography chose the theme {Silhouettes} and I love them.  However, between my work life and my post editing images from our vacation, and a number of visits to the dentist, I feel like my free time has just vanished.  Not only have a been part of the opening of new offices, I am…

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,…

30 Minutes in the Life: October 2018: Portland

For this month’s 30 Minutes I thought I would share some of the time we spent in Portland, Maine. Our drive from Wells Beach took about 40 minutes and we saw some great sights along the way.   Driving up to Portland we had fog. I was not happy.  We were heading to Portland to do some whale watching.  Ugh – fog means no whale…

Maine Vacation: Wells Beach: Part 1

Wells Beach was our destination and would be out hub for the 6 days that we were in Maine.  We were fortunate that a friend of mine offered us the use of their cottage and from there we traveled out – Portland, Bar Harbor and the Arcadia National Park, Orchard Beach, Kennebankport, Ogunuit, Portsmouth and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. But first off…

Maine Vacation: Manchester by the Sea

If you recall last we were in Salem, Massachusetts.  We left there after a couple of hours and headed to Manchester by the Sea.  Why there?  Well Richard talked about going on to Rockport, MA.  Apparently his Tuna Reality Series operates out of Rockport.  Well I watched the movie “Manchester by the Sea” last year and decided that since we were going to pass…

Artist Inspired: September 2016: Gold

It is so hard to believe that a month has past.  I am still in the recovery process of foot surgery and am unable to go out and take photographs right now. The last time I blogged with Artist Inspired, the theme was blue and I shared image from our trip to Friday Harbor.  This month the theme is gold and I decided to…

Seattle: Capital Hill

March in Seattle and we have now been here about 7 days.  We have the evening and one more day to spend in the city and then we head out on the road. In the evening we will be walking up to Capital Hill to meet up with a friend.  Not knowing where we were going we decided to spend the afternoon exploring Capital…

Tell me a story: June 2016

Tell me a Story is live and this month the quote is from Deepak Chopra: “To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions”  Solitude for me often comes when we…

Seattle City Scenes

When I first heard that my brother was coming to the US, my head said I wanted to be with him, my heart said I wanted to visit my daughter in Macedonia.  Richard however, said we were going to Seattle.  I was so torn.  We went to Seattle, and I have to be honest I fell in love with the city.  There was so…

Seattle: International Chinatown District

When I was in San Francisco I really wanted to go to Chinatown and that did not happen.  So before we even got on the airplane I voiced that the one thing I wanted to do was go to Chinatown.  We walked from our hotel the Chinatown.  It was probably a 20 minute walk from the city center, but I was happy to do…
