It’s been over a month since I returned from Scotland and have discovered that I am past the point of being able to blog the pictures effectively. So here are the highlights.
I am sorry to say I am too tired to post about my day – the trip to Niagara Falls. But I managed to upload the pictures, if not edit them. Sorry about those people that got into my view. I believe if you click on the photo, it will take you to my Picasa site. Then you can see it in full screen.
I am home; had a horrid trip back. Haven’t decided if that is worth writing about yet.
These are the pictures, if anyone cares to see the whole thing. They really look better in full screen. Couldn’t much be bothered to edit, so feel free to move along:
I tried to keep to something resembling my average weekend schedule while on vacation, so I was pretty much up and out around 8:30. As Rich and Jodi are rather nocturnal types, I was on my own for breakfast.
I felt stupid about not taking the picture of the fountain, so I went back on my last day in town. On the approach:
And from behind:
I just can’t get into it. I prefer the pictures from Fort Jackson.
Joy and I went there on Sunday, on the way back from Tybee Island. Where I almost got my rental car ticketed because Georgia is not a friendly parking state.
Anyway. I am now exhausted and have to get to the homework. I didn’t slack while I was away, but we only have two weeks left in the semester.
Here’s something worse. Joy and I walked over to Forsythe Park before dinner. I am not much impressed by fountains, but the sun was just breaking through the clouds as we were walking up the path and it was all framed with the trees and the Spanish moss and I pulled out my camera but there were too many people and I was too far away and by the time we were close enough the sun was gone and the moment had passed and I was all disappointed and didn’t bother to take a picture of it.
It seems I went all artiste for five seconds. I am rather disgusted with myself.
Monday night Must See TV has messed me up so that I couldn’t even pretend to do homework. But I managed to talk the Blackberry into coughing up the pictures I took at St Bonaventure yesterday:
I actually like these because they catch the contrast with the foliage. It messes with your head. I don’t remember it messing with my head before. Maybe because the other couple of times I visited were in the summer?
