We have a fire every night and John really likes burning wood so he has brought three pickup loads of wood thus far. We have a big stack out by the fire pit and lots more under the trailer.
The forecast was not good for here on Saturday but
On Sunday, Aileen went back to bed for a couple hours in the morning and again in the afternoon. I puttered on the computer til mid morning then took Mitzy out to the sand bank by the highway. She had a great time running and digging. Just after we started home the rains came again so we stood under a big spruce until it quit. I puttered on pictures for awhile after lunch.
On Monday I took the ATV off the truck so I could get at the other water jug as we were about out. Since it was off, I took it for a quick drive out to the sand pile by the highway. Mitzy was most upset she couldn’t go with me. After lunch, I took her for a long walk down the road towards the ship loader. We went in the first trail and walked along the beach to the far trail. Even Mitzy found it hard walking along the beach. We got spit on a bit but nothing serious. Aileen napped part of the time we were away.
I received and email from Sheila Monday morning telling us about Mom’s latest adventures. It seems she managed to wander away from the care home yesterday afternoon shortly after 4 PM. At 5 PM the police had sent her off to the hospital in
We went to town after lunch today. Aileen took laundry to Anne’s then we visited awhile there. Actually, I sat in the sun and roasted as it was out of the wind. It’s been very windy today but sheltered alongside our trailer, so very nice. I spent the afternoon in tee shirt and shorts. While Aileen napped, I sat outside intending to read but had three vessels claim my attention. First was a loaded log barge towed by a tug followed by the cruise ship, the Volendam then a tug and covered barge. I zipped down to the beach each time I saw the boats.
Aileen cooked a small roast in the crock pot for supper and we ate it all. Later we walked out to the point. The wind eased off and we walked way along the shore. I tried some merganser and heron shots which I haven't downloaded yet. We stood around the fire for awhile then went into our trailers a little earlier tonight. We’d had an email from our realtor late this afternoon saying they are working on another offer on our buyer’s house. No word yet on whether the subjects to have been removed from our house. The buyer did follow through on the home inspection for our house but no word yet on how that went.
Great shots of the ships and barges, We especially appreciate the shots of the waves! Good sharp focus, and you must be using a fine zoom lens to bring them in that close.ReplyDelete
Frustrating as all get out trying to sell a house in this economy, but it will work out!
I use a Canon 100-400 image stabalized lens on my SLR Canons for most of the longer shots and for all the shots this post. I have cropped some of these quite a bit in order to tighten the image up. Most of my shots are taken with my 5D Mark 2 which gives a file size 5616 on the long side. After processing in Photo Shop, I drop the long side down to 999 to enable faster loading to the blog of emails. JohnReplyDelete
Hey John & Aileen - thanks again for the great lunch!! Thought I'd check out your blog and was tickled to see my name "twice". Went to Timberland to tell April about the family connection. So strange!! Great photos John, love the peek-a-boo deer. Maybe we'll take a drive to Ida Lake, haven't been that way for years. Take care!ReplyDelete
