I’m home from the 2nd annual Blog Fest, held at the home of Chesapeake Bay Woman, in Mathews VA. It’s late and I’m tired, so I’ll just show you some of the pictures caught in my camera lens this weekend.
How fun are these? Worn by my friend, Lauren (Mental P Mama).
Colorful local characters. This is Miss Pookie and her husband.
Miss Pookie gave us a little tour and told us of the history of Gwynn’s Island, where she was born.
My very first dragonfly capture.
I’ve been taking photographs for years and until this weekend, have never been successful with a decent capture of the elusive dragonfly. It’s not like I was making a serious attempt at it or anything, but still worth noting.
I discovered a trick. It includes being very hot and sweaty and using a long lens. Taken with my new Nikon 70-300mm.
I met new friends IRL. (Look at me, using cool abbreviations). This is Tracey Grumbach from Nine Acres Photography. It’s crazy we haven’t met before now. I’ve read her blog for over a year now and she lives in the next county over from me.
I took a fantastic sunset boat tour.
The mate was a mighty sailing man, the skipper brave and sure.
(you’re gonna be humming that all day now, aren’t you?)
This was our cabana boy at the beach.
Nah, I’m kidding. I couldn’t resist posting this photo of BHE’s nephew because he’s so darn cute. And I’m not getting my cougar on, so don’t be thinkin’.
George sent buttons for everyone.
He’d rather do that than meet IRL. Have I told you how shy he is?
This is the chandelier in the blue room at the White Dog Inn in Mathews VA. I was absolutely enchanted with this magic ship.
By the way, the White Dog Inn is absolutely, hands-down, fantastic. I need to elaborate but I am too tired tonight.
I had a such wonderful time and will continue with more pics tomorrow.
See you then,
