Long Eddy Point Lighthouse, Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick

Long Eddy Point Lighthouse

This week I have more sunset photos from this area of Grand Manan Island. A beautiful spot, with lots of greenery and water too, of course! I've included a shot of some berries that were beside us as we were waiting for the sun to set.

This week at school went by quick! I'm still working on the Dreamweaver's slow going as I had to create a website for each lesson so far! It's fun, but is sometimes time-consuming, when you run into issues! 

On Friday, went out and ran errands, got my haircut, did some Easter shopping for the girlies and did some laundry! On Saturday we went to the Big Apple and then to Campbellford and then stopped to visit Grammy on the way home. Busy day, but fun to get out...The wind was a bit too cool to go hiking...maybe next weekend? :-) Today, is a lazy day at home, doing homework and finishing laundry..lots of fun! :-)

Have a great week!

Long Eddy Point Lighthouse

Welcome Back!

This week and for a few weeks, I'll be highlighting this area of Grand Manan Island, at the Long Eddy Point Lighthouse.

This is the place to go for awesome sunset photos. We always go at least once with every trip to Grand Manan.

The first two photos were taken first, before it was even sunset, just from shooting into the sun. Makes nice silhouettes. You can see from a couple of them, how bright it actually was that evening. Those water shots show the currents flowing...apparently, it's a great place to see whales too, but we've never seen them there. We have seen seals here in the past.

This is probably one of the busiest places on Grand Manan too, because of the sunset there, you get all the tourists with their cameras..they usually come a few minutes before sunset, take photos and leave, whereas, we spend alot longer there, checking for whales and just enjoying the out-of-doors!

Well, we had a great time in Niagara Falls..was fairly beautiful weather. We did a lot of walking, around the falls and Clifton Falls, the mall, The Bird Kingdom and the Butterfly Conservatory, so, lots of photos for future posts! 

Haven't been doing too much the last few days, some homework stuff, laundry, cleaning and even did some crafts!

Have a great week!

Southwest Head Lighthouse

Welcome Back!

This time I'm highlighting a few more photos, actually the last of them of this area on Grand Manan, a beautiful sight with all those rocks and cliffs. I added some shots of thistles and a couple with a bee on them.

Well, school went well this week! I wrote the exam for Web Design I on Thursday, so I'd have it done for March Break. I am now studying Dreamweaver II. This is one program that I love using and use often for building websites. I usually end up hand-coding a lot while using it, but use some of the shortcuts when I remember! Thanks to a few of my friends, who helped me out this week testing the usability of a website I had to create!

We went to see Brooke yesterday in Waterloo. Took her out to eat as she doesn't get out much and bought her some groceries and stocked her up at Costco too!

Today, we are just laying low and taking it easy, laundry and movies..tomorrow we are heading to Niagara Falls for 3 days...should be fun! I hope to take some photos as I haven't touched my camera in sooo long! Some photographer I am!

Keturah is working after that, so not sure what I'll do the rest of the week...might have to do some homework! :-)

Have a great week!

Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick

Welcome Back!

This week I'm continuing with the photos from the Southwest Head Lighthouse Area. These are various views that I shot along the walking trail. Sorry, if some of them look similar, I liked the sky or something different in them and added them to my list! It's such a beautiful area. Looking at these photos makes me wish I was there right now..yep, even in the winter, I'd definitely go!

Loving my new computer, it's so fast compared to my old took me about 1/2 the time to post this as it used to!

This week seemed to go by slower, probably because I was sick with a cold and didn't really want to be at school..I still have the cough left, but am on the, if I could just shake these stomach issues, I'd be a happy camper!

Last week of school before March Break! will be nice to have a break. We are heading to visit Brookie on Saturday. Keturah is working on the Sunday and Thursday, so we are thinking of going to Niagara Falls for a few days in between...see if the falls are still frozen over!

I will hopefully post next Sunday again in between trips!

Have a great week!
