No! No holiday snaps, please!

This has been a tough post to write. I have photos to go here, lots of photos, but I have had to stop myself from posting all of them. This post was very, very close to becoming a page of holiday snaps. Each snap holding a memory and a story, but that's just what they were, snaps. I know the stories and the memories as do the people that shared the moments with me but how interesting are these to others? So instead I've picked a few photos which I think are good photos.

Catch up time, well almost

It's time to start catching up with a few projects. I am still way behind blogging for this year (things were looking so good around the middle of the year, but have dwindled due to my own lack of blogging)

I still need to catch up with:
1. The rest of my American holiday photos (yes, so I can bore a few more people with photos and sunshine and water
2. Sea kayaking
3. My year in photos (yes, just as exciting as it sounds)

I am going to start with sea kayaking, as those photos are the easiest to sort

In September I spent a weekend learning about sea kayaking in the Menai Straits. I have never sat in a sea kayak before never mind paddled one. Thankfully my knowledge of wobbly flat water racing boats came in useful, as I picked the most tippy one the had on offer and felt stable in. My camera of choice (or necessity) for this trip was my GoPro (my much unused, stored away in a drawer, uncharged GoPro). Until I find/invent/get bought for me some suitable reliable waterproof housing for my Iphone, my GoPro will have to do.  So I went armed with 10 screen shots of instructions, a basic knowledge of the settings, a zip tie and a sling, all in all the photos turned out ok.

And of course where ever I go, my Iphone goes

The prettiest cat I have ever seen (and a dog)

In Pennsylvania I met the prettiest cat I have ever seen. Sadly, this cat was unwilling to get into my bag and travel to the West coast and then back to England. Shame, he would have liked it here... will just have to try again next time.

Oh, and there there was a Paraguayan dog in Pennsylvania too.

Sorting time

So, am back in the UK and it's time to try to sort the photos. Anyone that knows me, will know that I take a lot of photos.

Today, I have managed to sort through 3 folders of various locations, in the vague hope I can cut the vast number down to a few that I might be able to put in a photo book. For some reason I have chosen not to do them in date order. I have completed: Niagara Falls, The Horseshoe Curve and Williamsburg. No idea why I choose these, they aren't even in the same state.

Niagara Falls

Horseshoe Curve


This is a very small number of photos in each folder. More will follow later (when they are sorted).

2 nights in Philly, did and saw everything that I wanted to do/see. Only missed getting a Philly cheese steak from the original home of the cheese steak, but the one I did have was awesome.
