Grandson Michael shared these photographs he took on vacation at Split Rock Lighthouse in Two Harbors, Minnesota.
Thank you Joanne who sent the article and photographs from Halifax
The Volunteers Bronze Statue in Halifax, at the Waterfront, Nova Scotia (click link for article written when the monument was unveiled in 2017)
“The bronze sculpture, called “The Volunteers,” features three life-sized figures from three generations: A young girl pulling a wagon full of salvaged metal, an African-Nova Scotian woman holding a tray of coffee and sandwiches, and an older woman seated with a Mi’kmaq basket and knitting.”
The sculptor is Marlene Hilton Moore
Taken from the window by Sue Reinfeld as she was landing in Seattle. You’ve read my friend Sue’s comments on the blog. Recently we were photographing goats together along the Monongahela. Thanks for the beautiful view, Sue.
Mt. Rainier and the Cascades
Last year I received a photo of Mt Rainier above the clouds from 8 year old Ellie and she was guest blogger in July.
Thanks for being guest blogger today, Erika.
These photographs were taken by my grandson Jack, who is 14 and a high school freshman.
He told me recently he’d like to get into photography.
My advice to him was to take a lot of pictures, study them and look for the good light.
I thought he captured the feel of Autumn quite nicely.
My daughter sent me the photos she took when she and Charlie went blueberry picking in Ohio Friday morning.
Today’s post is number 4,446.
It’s alway satisfying to receive a photo and the sender says they thought of me when they took it. This photo was sent by my SIL Bobbie in Kansas City.
I took a photo of this lone shoe, seen during my regular early Saturday morning walk.”
Our family friend Shuey has done it again. Sent photos that create a guest blog post. He’d driven his motorcycle up from Niceville Florida.
“I rode up to be a motorcycle safety volunteer for a charity bicycle event running out of Seneca, PA. It was in support of MS research and I monitored traffic at an intersection to facilitate travel for over 300 cyclists riding a 75 mile course. Weather was decent last Saturday and I think everyone had a good time. The route was quite hilly and twisty; these were serious riders.”
Last Saturday Shuey captured the Snowman after his volunteer duty was completed.
“The Snowman is a one-of-a-kind, 13-foot tall custom built roadside attraction originally from New Mexico. In 2013, he found his permanent home right here in Portersville, Pennsylvania.”
“If you’ve followed the blog you might remember the top post of 2012 was Shuey’s guest post of the stunning Barred Owl
Photos and text just in from Marlene in Florida.
the Sandhill Cranes –Antigone canadensis
They have a nest behind our site. The female and male take turns sitting on the nest. They walk around the campground checking everyone out. The other day I missed a great photo when an alligator swam over to the nest. The male Sandhill poked the alligator with his beak and the alligator swam off. Notice the red eyes they have. The male is a few inches taller then the female but hard tell when they are not together.
