30 Minutes in the Life: April 2020

In the 2020….. (How does the song go “In the year 2525, if man is still alive If woman can survive ~ Zager, Evens”).  Earlier today I saw someone added an “in the year 2020…” a Facebook post with the idea that this would come up in their memories. So what does Corona Virus Stay at home look like for you?  For me, it…

30 Minutes in the Life: February 2020

If you are heading to Maine, take a bit of time to visit Ogunquit, found on the southern coast of Maine.  Lying between the Ogunquit River and the Atlantic Ocean, Ogunquit Beach is a long, sandy peninsula with grassy dunes.  There are also cliff walks with coastal view While in town, take some time to look up the Ogunquit Museum of American Art.  I…

Happy New Year: 2020 is here!

Happy New Year.  I find it hard to believe it is 2020.  I feel like I just started out with 2019 and now it is gone. I could sum up the year in just a few words, family, travel, work, and photography. We spent an enormous amount of the year traveling. In March my brother came over to a conference and the whole family…

30 Minutes in the Life: May 2019

Yes I know it says May, and it is now June, but truth is we delayed it one week so that we would all have a chance to enjoy the Memorial Day weekend.  For me it was an awesome 11 days of vacation.  5 of those days were spending in the stinking hot sun down in the Florida Keys.  Phew, when shade is at…

Tell me a Story: May 2019

If you did not read my previous post we are in San Antonio for a few days.  After visiting the Alamo, I had a list of places in the “town” area that I wanted to see.  First on my list was St Fernando Cathedral.  So we meandered through the town until we reached it. We passed canals and interesting buildings. We stumbled across a…

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…
