Getting our Feet Wet

June 1st, 2007

I am not so good at updating this blog, I am realizing. I have been checking out other people’s blogs – people who update their blogs regularly…sometimes daily! My mother-in-law is one of those who is on top of the blog thing. You should check out her blog, and website. Besides her luscious hand dyed yarns, she says some really nice things about my photos. I am super lucky to have such amazing in-laws. I have heard so many horror stories about the evil mother-in law syndrome, and I can happily report that I can not relate! I actually love telling people this – I love seeing their confused expressions. Anyway, it’s pretty awesome having a fellow artist and AMAZING female business owner role-model. This is the real reason I married my husband . All joking aside, I have been so busy working and reading up on flash techniques that I have put aside 3 skeins of Lisa’s Blue Faced Leicester yarn (in peacock). I am waiting for a worthy project.

Speaking of flash techniques, I was second shooter for the talented Autumn of Autumn Photography about two weeks ago. I can’t even tell you how much fun I had (nerve racking at times, but definitely fun)! Autumn is just so fun and easy to work with that I couldn’t have planned it any better. I am looking forward to working more with her, and I will eventually post some of my photos.

So, I titled this entry “Getting our Feet Wet” partially because I am a total noob to the area, but also because Erik & I did just that this past Memorial Day weekend. We took a bike ride down to one of Milford’s Beaches and Erik put his feet in the Atlantic ocean for the very first time!


I was hesitant – the water is cold! But I eventually followed suit


It was pretty humid, but otherwise we couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. Sunny and warm!


There are tons of seagulls by the beach, and I saw a lot of empty shells and half eaten fish (apparently fish heads are a delicacy).


Erik was also very interested in the shells and rocks


It is so awesome living so close to the beach! We are gonna have a fun summer for sure.

    The fishy bits look like the remnants of a flying fish…that is what the colors are telling me. Do they have them in that neck o’ the woods? Erik looks like he could use some beach days cuz he is a big whitey like me. :o O It should be a magnificent way to refresh the brain cells…get out of the HOUSE and to the beach. Do not turn on the computer and just go outside. :o )
    You guys will just have to come west to hang out in the Sugar Pines for a different way to decompress. Sit out under the canopy and watch the turkeys…
