Sky Watch - Cold sunrise

The rain moved on, but the cold stayed for the sunrise, creating contrails from the outbound jets. Warmer this afternoon and spring weather is promised for the next few days.

Header Challenge - Don't rock the boat


At Greenbrier Lake in the summer there are boats that require paddles to navigate and rocking the boat is discouraged by the life guards on the shore. The "boat" in my header is certainly an easy one to rock, but this lady made the trip without getting wet. A couple of years ago the boys and I torued the lake in one of the paddle boats (NO rocking allowed!).

Our World - Grandsons visit

Our two youngest grandsons came for a visit this week. Their visit was short as they have snow days to make up. We flew their airplane in the wind. 



 They built things with their magnetic blocks.

And Lewis suggested they celebrate my birthday with a cake which they help my daughter make.


Thanks all! It was a delightful visit, just too short!

Header Challenge - Night light




My header is night light from far away - sun light bounced off the moon and to my Nikon. The images below are light at night closer to home. I also put another moon shot header on Lew's pics

Our World - First Saturday

First Saturday in Frederick brings out the festive downtown, with businesses open late, outdoor seating at restaurants, and music along the streets. The ladies above were passing out info for The New Adventures of Alice in Wonderland appearing later this month at the Weinberg Center for the Arts. Below I found my self in a window.



Studio 6 has provided music on many Saturday nights. And the balloon and car reflections fit nicely in this window display.
