“The Spectacle before us was indeed Sublime” – A Trip To Venus, John Munro, (1897) A technical task brings to mind a pleasant memory I love the ornate language that John Munro used here.   I had never heard of his book “A Trip to Venus”,…

I found the poem below to be a perfect description of our evening this past Tuesday.  After supper, we left our cottage and decided to follow our noses to find some pictures. In this windy place, clear and calm evenings are somewhat rare.   This view…

Before starting work, we decided to head to Stanhope for sunrise pictures. Glad that the sun didn’t cooperate because we turned our attention to the blue herons who were feeding in the bay. We managed to fill more than one memory card. Marcy was stationed…
