Yesterday afternoon I drove to the high school
Then, noticing the sky was quickly clouding up, I raced over to Gwynn's Island to try and snap a few pictures before all the sunlight was gone.
These first two are from the public landing at the Seabreeze Restaurant.
These last two were taken from the car when I pulled over on the side of the road.
Kids? Nowhere in your driver's ed manual will you find a chapter on taking pictures from the car. There are many, many excellent reasons for this. In short, don't do it. Thanks for your attention to this lesson in the ongoing life class known as Do As Your Mother Says, Not As She Does.
* a book signing Friday night at Dilly Dally Emporium, which was a story in and of itself but a lot of fun;
* a post-Dilly Dally trip to Southwind, where I met several friends and engaged in some very lively conversation;
* Saturday's book signing at Twice Told Tales, where I saw my friends Bert and Brian from school and where I met a very interesting gentleman affiliated with Gloucester Arts on Main. Not only does he have a fascinating life story, which includes many years in Brazil and an ability to speak Portuguese, but he can teach me photography--real photography, as in how to shoot a picture in anything but Auto mode!
* the Waverly Lane Christmas party hosted by my parents Saturday night. My mother outdid herself with the food and the decorations. I was so tired I couldn't hold my eyes open, so I forgot to take pictures. I did eat myself silly, however.
Speaking of pictures, I didn't get many good ones yesterday thanks to the incoming clouds and my camera's ardent desire to take only dark pictures, but there are a few just OK ones I'll post in the coming days.
It's hard to believe Christmas is this coming weekend.
What went on in your world these past few days?
