Please bear with me, dear readers, because this is yet another post about my recent visit to Mathews, VA where I attended Blog Fest. However, it didn’t start out that way. I was going to post something else entirely today but after a phone call gone bad with my youngest son, I felt a bit peeved. I went outside to tend my petunias, but soon found that if I didn’t calm down, I was going to inflict some damage on the fragile petals.
I tried to force myself to relax and clear my mind, but this is easier said than done. And then I came inside and looked at photos I’d taken last weekend and immediately I began to feel better.
Here, I’ll show you why.
How cute is she? This is Meg, a fellow Marylander.
I took all these photos on our first morning of activity. On the schedule was a trip to New Point to see the lighthouse, Bethel Beach to see the shoreline, and an old tabernacle that we all found really interesting.
He had a lot of expressions like that and when I first opened my photo files when I came home and saw that one, it popped into my mind.
Angie from VA, Shelley from Vancouver and Diane from Seattle are learning the proper way to wave like a Baroness. Shelley demonstrates.
Lauren from CT.
Fun fun fun fun fun!
Meg from Maine is on the left and Annie, also from CT on the right. Annie can identify birds just by hearing their sounds. And there’s a beautiful photo of Meg [here] on my photoblog.
I feel so much better now.
My husband would have a field day with this photograph because it’s of everyone’s back. [Here’s what he thinks] of my photography when I shoot photos like this.
I like the perspective, however, and will continue to do whatever I want to do. He says I do that all the time, too.
Shelley, Grandma J and Angie above. Grandma J’s name is Janice and she arrived from Texas.

I love landscapes. I wish I could have bottled the scent, too.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
