Back From Vacation

Back From Vacation


Posted on Aug 28, 2007

My trip to Vancouver, B.C was a complete success!  It was great to spend time with family.  We packed our days full of fun activities.  I need another vacation because I’m still tired from last week. This was taken at the top of the Space Needle.  I love having family visit.  I hadn’t been to the top of the Space Needle since I was a kid.  It was a great chance to do it all again. This is from...

When I came home from work two days ago, I could hear a very noisy squirrel in my neighbor’s tree.  Well, anyone who knows me knows that I love squirrels.  My husband even calls me the squirrel whisperer.  I walked over and saw this dude sitting in the tree eye level with me eating a walnut.  He wasn’t scared and continued to watch me watch him.  I went inside to get my camera completely sure he...

I was outside trying to take good pictures of the pendants I recently made.  The light wasn’t cooperating with me at all.  I was starting to give up when I noticed this ladybug walking across my deck.  He didn’t like me trying to take his picture and would run super fast.  I had a heck of a time trying to stay up with him.  I’m glad I did because I love these shots.  Each picture has...

During our paddle boat ride at the beach, we happened upon 3 Blue Herons.  We were able to get pretty darn close to these birds.  They just pretty much ignored us.  I love these first two shots a lot.  I like the black funky background.  I also like the light on the bird from the setting sun.  I took pictures as fast as I could since the paddle boat was moving.  I was so happy when a few turned out...

While at Ecola State Park, I noticed these vines wrapping around other plants.  I was fascinated by how intricate and beautiful the curls were.  I also loved the rich green on green that just really pops.  I spent way too much time taking pictures of this natural phenomena.   My husband lots of patience while I was on my picture spree.  He knows that at times of sudden inspiration, it’s best to just...

After a trip to the beach and a dreadful bout of food poisoning, I’m back in action.   My husband and I took a quick overnight trip to Seaside, OR.  It’s been years since I’ve been there.  I’d forgotten how short of a drive it is from Portland.  We had a beautiful sunny day when the weather man had forecasted nothing but rain.  We did everything from walking on the beach, played...
