October 22, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Colorful

I admit it, I have been seriously lax in this process.  But here's my photo for colorful.  I took this a week ago, it was the sunrise in our backyard that first really cold day and the fog rising off the water was just too cool.

October 1, 2015 - Photo of the Day Challenge: Ground Level

For the last couple of months I've been busy with other things, which has not so much prevented me from taking pictures but just threw my timing off.   I can't tell you what those other things have been, not because it's top secret and I'd have to kill you, but more because I don't remember.

So here we are, October and this is the list for the challenge:  Oh and my entry for today:

September 27, 2015 - Super Moon Eclipse

Well it's my best attempt thus far to get anything that even resembles the moon.  I'm actually pretty pleased although I'm not entirely sure what I did.

September 15, 2015 - Prince Edward Island Pictures

Monday Morning @ 9am in Charlottetown.  


It took us until the afternoon to figure out that Charlottetown is not really that sleepy of a town. Apparently, 9/7 was also Canada's version of Labor Day.

On our way to Montague.  



On our way to Panmure Island we stopped to see the seals

Greenwich National Park

September 11, 2015 - Day 5 Prince Edward Island

Can you hear that?  It's my legs whimpering after having completed the 62 kilometers from Montague to Rollo Bay. Technically, we could have gone further into Souris but my ass said NO!

Oh and luck continues to be on my side, I had my 2nd flat tire but it happened at our stopping point.  Really, if I'm going to get a flat there isn't a better location. Plus the guy who was driving the support vehicle swung it at the moment I was going to change the tire and her did it for me.  In about an 1/8 of the time it would have taken me.

This is really a beautiful island and the people are incredibly considerate about bicyclists.  The cars give a wide birth and people just randomly wave and give you a thumbs up (OK fine the thumbs up only happened 1x).  Sure, I guess it's possible that people are waving more as an acknowledgment that this group of women on bicycles in the rain are insane.

Tomorrow we ride to St. Peters.

September 9, 2015 - Prince Edward Island Day 3

Montague to Panmure Island with a side stop at St. Andrews Point
Have I  failed to mention this is a bicycle tour organized by Woman's Tours? Well it is.  This is only the 2nd tour L and I have gone on and I can easily foresee us doing others with them.   Anyway onto our regularly scheduled content.

We rode a total of 59 kilometers today.  Some of that was because L and I missed a turn to go to St. Andrews Point and had to backtrack.  It was an optional stop but we wanted to check it out because Cy and Jackie (the guides) said there were seals in that area.  Turns out there were more than a few.  What do you call a mob of seals? A pack? A pod? Whatever, there were a lot of them and I managed to get some really good shots which I'll post next week when we get home.  The extra miles were made all the more worth it when we requests Cy do her seal imitation.  She let loose with a guttural honk-like nose and don't you know it sounded like the seals called back.

Then we headed to Panmure Island.  Now I admit there was some groaning and bashing of teeth as L & I made our way there through a headwind that I am sure was only in existence to torment us.  Just to clarify, the complaining etc, is in fact part of the fun. If it were ridiculously easy how could we give ourselves an "atta girl" for surviving another day. Well that and the chocolate ice cream shake we had at lunch as a preemptive reward.  I don't even feel remotely guilty about that or anything else I eat this week.  I'm pretty sure this is the only vacation I will go on were I have fun, eat what I want, and still lose weight.

The country side is just beautiful.  Yes, pictures will come.  Now I believe I'm going to take a nap.

September 7, 2015 - Day 1 of PEI Bike Tour

We'll have to wait for photo content because I can't upload those yet.  Anyway, L and I drove into Prince Edward Island yesterday and the 1st sign of panic hit when we got to the Confederation Toll Bridge.  The toll $45 for a car. Yikes.  Fortunately, we aren't required to pay it until we leave the island but it sure as heck took a few years off my life.  Neither of us were carrying any Canadian dollars and I envisioned a line of cars behind us as we tried to talk our way through the toll.  One disaster averted.

Today, we met up with the rest of the the women on the bike tour and took a brief ride to check out the bikes and make sure everyone was comfortable. L and I did the loop 2x the second time was because 3/4 of the way through the 1st trip I discovered I lost my Rx glasses.  How could I have not noticed such a thing? I was wearing my Rx Sunglasses at the time.  No luck finding the lost pair and I am sure I will make do, it's just a PIA.

Onto upbeat news, its beautiful in Charlottetown and the people seem extremely nice.  Tomorrow we head to Montague and I am hoping to snap lots of pictures on this adventure.

July 9, 2015 - Photo A Day July 2015 List from The Idea Room

Someone asked that I provide the list I am using for the photo a day challenge.  It's from
The Idea room Photo A Day July 2015 List

They provide a list every month and anyone can use it.  I'm using it for inspiration to get out there and take pictures.  Some of them are good others not so much but it's fun.

July 9, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Work

Geez, I really need to clean up my desk.  Regardless, this has been my work for the last couple of days.  What you can't see on the computer monitor are two documents side-by-side that I need to respond to.  All the crap on my desk, just that, well except the two glasses of iced tea.  Why two?  It was an accident.

July 7, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: In Between

This was my original option for "in between"

but then I saw the girlie laying there and she's kind of in between the fence and the ground.  Sometimes she lays with her head on the gate with her snout between the spindles but not today.

Well since we have 2 pets it didn't seem right to make one of them feel bad.

June 26, 2015 - Photo A Day Challenge: Oops

Turns out I had an actual oops moment yesterday.  I was helping my mother wipe dirt off the leaves of a plant,  (0k yes, I know that seems like a weird statement but I was) when I accidentally pulled several leaves off one of the branches and I literally said "oops"

It was much funnier that it might have otherwise been just because of this particular assignment
