Catch Up

Between the move and my upcoming vacation, I haven’t been around here much lately and I apologize for that – but it will be awhile before things get back to normal (whatever that is) again. To fill you in – I have moved, although still unpacking.  Hopefully I will be finished unpacking before I leave… Continue reading Catch Up

Back to Some Critters

I have been very lax at keeping up with the critters in the neighbourhood.  For some reason, I often even forget my camera when Chester and I head out for our walks- so I don’t have many pictures – but I do have a few. I haven’t had time to figure out the bird that… Continue reading Back to Some Critters

New Year’s Bunny

The new camera is a Sony Cyber-shot DSC HX300 and it had 50x optical zoom.  Now I have to get back to Africa to really… Continue reading Putting New Camera to the Test

Snow

Yesterday, I thought the snow had missed us since only a tiny bit landed during the day and other places were getting inches of the stuff.  I obviously spoke too soon though because more started falling during the evening and over night.  It still isn’t enough to bother shoveling, but it is covering the ground.… Continue reading Snow
