Photography Lesson

Scott gave me his old camera and today we went outdoors so I could practice.  I would love some honest feedback.  I know most of you that read this call or email me and that is perfectly fine.  Whatever works for you.  I appreciate knowing if you have any advice.  I have a LOT to learn!

Sunday and Back to Hiking

It was so nice to get back to hiking at our favorite nearby place.  Scott's knee seems to be healed so we hit the trails with Annie.

 Ready to go?

Very interesting and colorful

The scent of honeysuckle was fantastic

Decisions, decisions

Almost to the water

What a view!  Bikes and boats were out enjoying the beautiful day.  I stood watching and forgot to take pictures of them

Time to go home.  A tired dog is a happy dog.

Scott and Annie took a nap in the afternoon.  I envy those that can nap.  If I take a nap I cannot sleep at night.

Laurel & Hardy

The Laurel & Hardy Museum is located in Harlem, GA. just off I-20 near Augusta.   I have included some pictures of our visit along with a clip that I hope you enjoy as much as I do.

Heggie's Rock

Today we took a tour of a local preserve called Heggie's Rock.  What an amazing place!  The Nature Conservancy hosts a very informative tour.

Fountain of Youth

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
