Swallowtail Lighthouse, Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick

Swallowtail Lighthouse, Grand Manan Island

Welcome Back!

This time I'm including more photos from the Swallowtail Lighthouse area of Grand Manan. It's an area where we usually spend a good couple of hours every time we visit...just sitting and enjoying the view..it doesn't get better than this!! I can't wait to go back..hopefully in July!

This week went great...I finished the Web Practical Simulation and am taking a course on Web Portfolio...it's suppose to help you create an online portfolio. So, it should be a very useful course.

Our house is still in shambles...I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel of flooring! :-) Painting is next, I believe..sigh...My house will never be back to normal! Oh well, it will be worth it, if we sell it!

Tomorrow, we are heading to Waterloo to pick up Brookie! Yay! She's coming home for summer, so that should be fun and crazy too, if we all have to go 4 directions with 3 cars..yikes! I will hopefully be done school in about 6 weeks.. I only have 3 courses to go after this one! Another light at the end of a tunnel!

Have a great week!

Swallowtail Lighthouse, Grand Manan Island, NB

Welcome Back! This time I have some photos of a beautiful area and the most photographed on Grand Manan Island! This is the Swallowtail Lighthouse and the landmark of the Island. It's such a beautiful area....walk down a flight of stairs (going down is the easy part :-)) and then follow the trail to the lightkeepers house and all the trails around that lead to the edge of the cliffs. There are also benches where you can sit and watch the ferry, the kayakers, the seals and fishing weirs! That's what I hope to do when I retire there! :-)

Today's photos include the lighthouse, some views from the trail down to the lighthouse, some kayakers going by, a fishing weir and Long Island ( I think!) in the background. These photos make me want to pack and go there right now! :-)

Well, this week went by quite fast..I say that every week! At School, I finished Dreamweaver II and wrote the exam and now I am doing a Web Practical Simulation course, which includes a little bit of everything we've learned so far...lots of fun!

Friday, I spent most of the day working on my own small business website stuff...there's still lots to do! :-)

This week/weekend we've been busy spring cleaning and Kevin's been hard at work putting in laminate flooring in all the upstairs bedrooms. So our house is more of a mess than it usually is! :-) I'll be glad when it's finished!

Today I went to an open house for Sunset Gourmet Foods. I am doing some website/social media work for a consultant in Kingston, so she invited me to come and try the new products! Yummy!

Have a great week!

Sunsets at Long Eddy Point Lighthouse, Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick

Long Eddy Point Lighthouse

Welcome Back!

This week I have the LAST of the sunset photos from the Long Eddy Point Lighthouse on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick! These are some of my most favourite ones! The photos really do not do the sunset justice...So much more awesome and breath-taking in person.

This week went by fast..another short week! Of course, every week is a short week for me with having Friday's off! :-) I worked on my last lesson for Dreamweaver and will write the exam tomorrow! Not sure what's next on the agenda! More fun stuff, I'm sure!

The website I just finished will be uploaded tomorrow and because it's photography-related, if you'd like to check it out,  you will find it at:

(but not til tomorrow morning sometime!)

Not much new to report...Keturah and I headed to Ottawa yesterday for a baby shower for our friend, Sheena...It was lots of fun! Tired today as we got home after 11 last night! Today, just doing groceries, laundry and homework--all that fun stuff!

Have a great week!

Sunsets at Long Eddy Point Lighthouse, Grand Manan Island, NB

Long Eddy Point Lighthouse

Welcome Back!

This time I have more photos of the beautiful sunsets at the Long Eddy Point Lighthouse on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick.

These are all of the sun setting---no lighthouse to be found this week!

Another week went zooming by..probably because it was a 3 day week for me! I had a medical appointment on Monday...I'm still working on Dreamweaver II. Love it...creating a lot of websites along the way!

Brookie came home for Easter on Thursday...we met her at the Whitby Go station...tried that route this time...it didn't seem too bad for us, but she still had a lot of travelling and bus changes! :-)

Friday, we finally got out hiking to Lemoine's Point in Kingston. It was a beautiful day, but the trails were kind of muddy and/or slippery from the slush! On Saturday the girls and I went out shopping for the day. Today, we are heading to take Brooke to catch her train to go back to Waterloo, Keturah is off to work and Kev and I will be going for a turkey dinner at my sister's...Yumm!

Happy Easter!
