...take me home...
Took a little ride into the country this afternoon. Trying to discover a little of the countryside out here in Yorkton without getting lost. :)

59 of 365 Wine Holder

I love this wine holder. I love it's sleek lines - especially on the floor with the late afternoon sun streaming in the window. Our son and daughter-in-law gave it to us Christmas 2009.

58 of 365 Ceramic Guy

David and I saw this end table/stool/ piece of art when outfitting the Yorkton condo. We weren't sure what he was but we liked him and he was a reasonable price. We still don't know what he is but right now he sits beside a chair. I told David we would have to get an ivy and put it on top of him so he would have hair. But David's suggested I just turn him upside down on the shag carpet and give him an afro.
So no photographic feat tonight. Just our yet unnamed ceramic guy with an afro.

57 of 365 Miss Eva

Well we are home (sort of) and what better homecoming then our Miss Eva. She was over this afternoon briefly, before we took off again.....for Yorkton. yes we were home for all of 15 hours, but you can get a lot done in 15 hours - like 2 loads of laundry. :)
We sure love this little one and are anxious for the arrival of her sister.

56 of 365 Waterfall

We went for a brief walk at Whitty's Lagoon before heading home. Had time for just a few photos. I certainly want to come back with the tripod and about 2 hours to spare. Next trip.
WE are now sitting in the Calgary airport and Lord willing our plane will land safely in Saskatoon despite storm reports. Almost home. :) Wearing sandals and a windbreaker. :)

55 of 365 Beauty

Saw this little flower as we were heading out of our B&B for the day.  I don't know it's name. It has rained all day today. The air is fresh but it is that cold damp Victoria air that really chills you. However nothing like the snow storm we will be flying into tomorrow night.

54 of 365 Abigail's B&B

We are in Victoria, B.C. to visit my Mom as well as our son and daughter in law and our grand-daughter. It is much cooler here. We are acclimatizing on the way home. If you ever come to Victoria and want a fabulous B&B/Hotel located near downtown and Beacon Hill Park, I highly recommend Abigail's. We have been treated royally. Got in at 1 am this morning.

49 of 365 Cliff Diving

As the sun begins it's decent into the ocean, torch lighting signals the nightly ritual of Lele Kawa (cliff diving). Legend tells us that the chief of Maui (Thunderer), was provided his spiritual strength by leaping from the sacred Pu'u Keka'a to the Pacific.

48 of 365 Under the Banyan Tree

Yes, besides wonderful views, incredible food, the sounds and sites of the ocean here in Maui, there are numerous tourists shops of every kind willing to let you part with your money. And in the midst of it all there is poverty and suffering.  James chapter 2
I am reminded that all these wonderful things about me are temporary and that my real treasure lies in knowing Christ Jesus.

47 of 365 Just Us

Spent a relaxing day together - just the two of us -  and then went out for supper. This is one of the reasons I brought my tripod to Maui - photos of us. Yesterdays photo is another - long exposures.

Another photo off the lanai this morning.

This rainbow stayed with us all the way through breakfast. It was just amazing. At times there was a second rainbow over it.

41 of 365 Moon Over Maui

I was thinking that another shot over the water might be overkill but I liked this photo of the moon early this morning with a cruise ship on the horizon. The runner up photo of the day though was the guys shirtless in the kitchen doing the dishes while Linda and I watched and finished off the wine. :) THIS is vacation land.

Okay - if you really want to see the guys doing dishes shirtless, check out the regular blog.

38 of 365 Memories

... like the corners of my mind, misty water colored memories.....

I digress...

I should be good for 12 days of shooting in Raw (not in the raw).
For the photographers - I am picking up a ND filter for the 16-35mm  2.8 tomorrow!
Yes! Hoping for some spectacular water shots.

36 of 365 Shag

It got cleaned today.
So I can imagine it is a beach somewhere.
With palm trees. JK

Yes, this is one of those "oh no it is 10 pm and I haven't got a 365 shot yet" photos. 
Very unlike yesterdays shot that took two people and 45 minutes to do. 
I have been on line trying to book a car rental. You would think it should take maybe 15 minutes but it was well over an hour - only to find there are no cars available in Maui this week. Except Thrifty's - they want $400 for 2 days of rental - not very thrifty in my books.
hmmm do I know anyone living in Maui that would like to pick us up at the airport?

35 of 365 SPLASH

Playing with water......

are you kidding?

There's no way I was going to use my Blue Sapphire Gin!

By the time we got this shot there were 2 cups of water on everything.
My thanks to Harold for being my olive dropper.

33 of 365 Waiting

It has been a long, but productive week - well, productive at work. I was able to accomplish quite a bit this week and that feels really great!

But, alas,  my sweetheart has been away all week. I don't sleep when he is gone.
Now I have a sinus cold. Yuck - I haven't had a cold in over a year.

All will be well once again. I bought OJ to drink tonight and Lord willing my love will be home tomorrow night.

This is his guitar. It too is waiting for his touch.
I get first dibs!

32 of 365 Orchid

I am feeling a little disgruntled with the fact that it is February. I don't know where 2011 went and January is just a momentary flash in my life. Here it is February. Life, please slow down. I can't get it all done!
And this also means I have t think when numbering my photos now because they no longer line up nicely with the date. Dang!

Hopefully anonymous will make sure I don't get off track. :) I am counting on you.
