Sorry for being so late everyone. I am still trying to catch up on things. My email box is still full of things I have to attend to and I hope to accomplish catching up with that today.

I spent the evening uploading pictures to my Picasa account and I mapped everything from the trip out so that took some time. I didn’t really ‘fix’ any of the pictures in Photoshop, so what you see is kind of what you get. I created a separate album for each day:

Day 1

Day 2

Day 3

and Day 4

Here are slideshows for those of you who don’t like leaving the site:

Day 1:

Day 2:

Day 3:

And Day 4:

I hope all of these work. I am trying to figure all this photo stuff out and I suppose it is good to try it here. You will all let me know if I goofed, I am sure! ;)

And for those of you who just want to see a picture, here is a photo of the road we were on:

It sure was a lovely time.

I will be spending today finishing up catching up. Then on to new things! I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Wow! 1st let me thank you for takin me & the rest o us on vacation with you. I set up a box fan in front of me while watchin these video clips, and it felt like I was in that super nice Ford Mustang GT convertible…. thank you very much. Ahhhhh the wind blowin thru me beard, and, Wow, the sites. Part of the trip, I found myself humming to the tune from Gilligans Isle, and, I used to live in Lorain, but, it was Lorain, Ohio. You were missin one thing while sittin in that big ole adarondak chair, and that was an ice cream cone… lol This was a wonderful vacation, and thnx fer takin me with you both. For sure much beauty and serenity along the way. Very awesome sites. Thnx again. :)

Hi Sheila,
Should be titled photo blog> no words can describe the photos you shared. I like to hit the road over there and drive…. no traffic, fresh air, beautiful sites, relaxing breeze… thanks for sharing.

Thank you all very much! It IS beautiful here! It felt good with the sun shining and the wind in my hair and the fresh smell of the ocean. Unbelievably good!

I found it funny that I didn’t have much time to write today because preparing the pictures and uploading them took so long to figure out! (AND I didn’t even Photoshop any of them! It was a “what you see is what you get” kind of upload – or nothing would have made it if I got picky!)

I love to share the pictures of the beautiful place I live. While Cape Breton has a bit more hills, much of it is like what is in my own back yard here. I am so fortunate to be in such a wonderful place. Peaceful and beautiful. I am happy you like the pictures. I love seeing pictures of others’ homes and vacations. It is like traveling there myself. Tomorrow, you will get a ‘real blog’ I promise. :)

Have a great night!
