West Woods Hike and Birds

Last fall, we went for a walk at West Woods.  It was so relaxing and fun!  I can’t wait to do it again!  The ledges there are beautiful!  I only wish we could go see the cave, but the bat population has a fungal issue at this time, so we are not allowed near there.…

Edgar Allan Poe’s Grave

As mentioned in my post about going to the B&O Railroad Museum, we were in Baltimore for a sort time.  While there, I wanted to see something I’d wanted to see for 20 years.  The grave of Edgar Allan Poe.  My boyfriend, being the awesome guy he is, took me to see it.  Poe influenced…

Frozen Lake Erie

A month ago, Lake Erie was so frozen over, I just had to go down and see the pretty sight of it.  We were not disappointed!  It was gorgeous!  If you’ve never seen a large lake frozen in the winter time, you’re missing out! Note:  We DID NOT walk on the frozen lake.  In some…

Building My Own Camera

I have a huge love for cameras.  Especially old ones.  So, a few years ago, when I came across a twin lens reflex camera kit, I couldn’t resist.  Well, a few months ago, I finally got around to assembling it.  I meant to post about it earlier, but I kept forgetting, so here’s some photos…

ASM Dome

Not far from where we live is a really awesome structure and garden called the ASM Dome.  The garden under it is actually a mineral rock garden!  It’s a very beautiful spot and I hope to explore it even further later this year.  In the mean time, enjoy some photos from our visit there! I’m…
