Home Again

Two weeks. So much happens, changes, and shifts in a two week period. I’m back home and at work but seem overwhelmed with the amount of catching up I have to embark upon. My trip was both business and personal but ended up being fully rejuvenating. Now that I’m back home, I surely do hope some of that rejuvenation carries forward as I plunge into emails and messages, not to mention upcoming writing deadlines. I’ll leave you with a few random images from my two-week road trip.


I likely should have included the following images first since they were taken while I was still in the cold north:


I came across two moose bedded down in an RV parking lot. One in each parking spot.

This seagull was trotting along main street Sidney oblivious of traffic, which all yielded to him. He obviously had quite a catch that he was determined to keep from the other seagulls:


Of course there were some humorous moments:

I’m laughing at the “Thou shalt not park” sign! Beautiful images Diane!

I love all of these! The moose is just too cute ๐Ÿ™‚

If I had to dream myself anywhere though, it would have to be on that water in the golden amethyst light. Beautiful.

Welcome home, Diane! What a fantastic group of shots you brought back with you, too. Glad you found your trip rejuvenating – I usually find them exhausting and need a vacation from the vacation! Ha! Thanks for your comment on my post at V&V – I didn’t expect you to catch up there so quickly!
