Mike and Patti left late on Friday night. We had such a wonderful time with them visiting! We filled each day to the fullest with outdoor activities, sight-seeing, and hanging out sharing laughs and great times. We’re so happy they could visit. We are already talking about their next visit - perhaps in winter to see the aurora and enjoy our winter activities.
I haven’t had a chance to sort through the thousands of photos I took yet, but I promise to get to it as soon as I can. It’s going to be a very busy week for me, as I have several senior/grad shoots scheduled. It’s that time of year when the Class of 2013 has to think about having their yearbook photos taken, and because Steve and I will be traveling in September, I’m limited on appointment slots.
I foresee many late nights this week, but that’s to be expected when the darkness starts to return. We’re down to 18 hours of visible light, and believe me - I miss those other 6 hours greatly! There is one advantage to darkness. The stars are back - and so is the aurora. It’s been visible several nights last week, although I slept right through them. When the window of opportunity is narrow, it’s hard to pinpoint the exact time to be out there and ready with a camera. It’s OK. Winter will soon be upon us, and I’ll have plenty of time to chase the lights. Right now, getting as much sleep as I can, before winter insomnia hits, is the most important thing.
I don’t have any photos to share in this blog entry, but I did want to share the itinerary I made for my brother Mike and his girlfriend Patti. It might look a little odd in two pages, but when it’s folded up, it makes more sense. We did just about everything on the list, and then some! This will give you a general idea of all the fun stuff we did over the last 10 days! More details to follow…
Until next time!
