Late Nite Catechism

Went to a Local H show in Valpo, stopped at that one church on the way home… she’s looking rough, these days. Many have been here, but few come back when lit purely by moon and street light.

Fifteen-ish minute exposure.


... and so to Lake Titicaca ...

One more shot of the awesome scenery from the rail journey across to Puno … it was so special. The observatory car enabled us to see the scenery in the open air; I learnt how to make Pisco Sour cocktails in the bar and listened to some great live Andean music at the same time – a real highlight! 70 more words

So, we’ve crossed the Rockies and have arrived, still awestruck, in the lower British Columbia mainland. Whiterock, to be exact. It’s been a long drive, made longer and more emotional by the visits and subsequent leavetaking of our children. 731 more words


Lake Living (For 3 days at least!)

So this last weekend a few friends and I decided to get away from the hustle n’ bustle of college life and spend the weekend on Lake Coeur d’Alene. 358 more words
