Castle In the Clouds and Littleton–10-11-2019

Jules said “no heights” which is limiting if you are in the White Mountains, but I made due!

If you are ever in NH, this is a great place to go – gives you a wicked sense of what life as a super duper rich person is like.

Then we hung out in Littleton, did the river walk and waited for the sun to set – worth it!

Saddaday Falls–5.5.2019

It was gloomy when I got up, so decided to drive around the Kanc and ended up at Saddaday Falls, even this time of year the trail heads are already packed.

Before I got to the falls, I tucked in to this other spot on the way.  With the melt the waters are running fast and hard and kind of dirty to!

The falls is a short hike, but sometimes the better attraction is the river that leads you to the falls.

There was still snow on the ground in many places.  And the water was cold, but the walk/hike was fun and I got to take my time and snap a few pictures.

Best of Unsorted

A few years ago, I lost all my photos.  My backup drive went corrupt.  I was able to save most, but I did end up with having lost 2011 and some of 2012.  Thankfully, I did have some backed up here, on wordpress as well as a few on disc, remember that?

Both of these above were taken on Parent’s Mountain in front of my house.

This shot – took me a while to set up, mostly because the sun never quite hit at the right place.  I had to do a bit of – scouting to get JUST the shot!

Best of September

Ah, Sept, almost fall!  My fave time of the year.

2010

These are my FIRST pictures with my Canon Rebel SX/DSLR – Previously, anything before Sept 2010 was scanned from my film photos (still a Rebel, I’m a Canon girl)

2013

I spent 7 weeks in Milliknocket, ME doing my clinicals.  The last two shots of 2013 are my first “long exposure” shots.

The below picture was taken atop an inactive volcano – in that view, you can see Texas in the far distance.

Best of January

Someone suggested to me to make a “best of” my photos.  I have to be honest, that’s a LOT of pictures.  So I’ll be doing this every last day of the month (if I can).  I went all the way back (as far as I have saved) and rummaged around in my January folders.

2016

My first time in Deer Isle, while working at the nursing home – I was there a short time – 9 weeks or so, but it’s a place I’ll definitely want to go back to again and again.

My 2nd time in Deer Isle (I just realized I spent two winters there in the last 3 years).  So many pictures to pick from – but these are my faves.

August Jaunt

We barely have been able to afford life, much less a vacation.  But due to the fact that I’m now a travelling PTA and making a few bucks here and there, we can actually learn to enjoy life! 

Sometimes Smile

We headed to Machias, and then to Roque’s Beach.  Secluded, quiet, and gorgeous.

We did some searching for seaglass, and just took in the fresh air.

Then we headed over to Machais Falls.  Walked around, enjoyed the sights, and then over to Quoddy Lighthouse.

We decided to keep the world simple, we grabbed sandwiches, and headed back to Roque Beach for dinner on the beach and watch the sunset.

Sometimes it is the simple moments in life that make life worth it and memorable.

This bug kept running and face planting in front of me.  Id’ take a few steps, and it would scurry and – faceplant!

hdr-IMG_3685

Wicked set of steps.

This has been here thousands of years.  That’s a lil awe inspiring.
