Textures of the Beach

Natural beauty is everywhere if we just slow down and look closely.

Canada’s Landscapes

Here are some pictures I took when hiking and kayaking in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Saint John.  We took a cruise to Canada and I posted before about exploring Peggy’s Cove, but enjoyed the nature and landscapes much more than the cruise.  Maybe next time we will plan more time on land than sea!

Sky Top Lodge and Hike

Here are some more shots from my recent trip to the Pocono Mountains.  The old Sky Top Lodge is beautiful.

The cottage we stayed in was pretty cool.

Bridges come in all shapes and sizes.  They get us from here to there, keep us dry when crossing a waterway, and help us “bridge” the gap and save us time.  Here are some bridges that I have had the pleasure of crossing:Batona Trail Overnight 035
