From Littleton to Lille–8-31-2018

The biggest problem I face is the crowds!  Weekends are impossible to go anywhere, cars are lines along the highway for miles.  And the days are growing shorter, so short hops to places are best!

Drive to New Hampshire

Leaving home isn’t ever easy.  I have the advantage of having a wicked wife.  I also enjoy stopping, stretching my legs and taking a few pics.

The drive:

I was on a mission, I wanted some keys..I needed 11 old keys.  8 for the # of assignments and 3 for the number of years I’ve been a PTA… I thought it would make a great prop for photos!

This is how I ended the day.  I unpacked and set up my two keep sakes from home.

Supergirl to remind me I can do anything I set my mind too.  And that Jules loves me to the moon and back and supports me in all that I do.

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)

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

I have to admit. The sunsets on the coast are wicked – it has to be the whole ocean thing.

Drive to New Mexico

I did not take a lot of time to sight see on my way to my new job in New Mexico, why? I was in a hurry. I was on a mission. On my last day I came across this gorgeous field of sunflowers:
