Yellow Daylily in our Garden

We have a large collection of daylilies which we grow:  pink, yellow, orange, and even white varieties.  This particular one was very large and caught my eye:

a trip to the art opening in St. Andrews

Last evening 9 residents of Campobello Island, plus our Captain Brandon Flynn made our way to Michael's opening in St Andrews by the Sea.  He has the entire Gallery at Sunbury Shores with 37 paintings of "Buildings in the Landscape".  At North Road Wharf, I snapped a quick picture of some of the boats there and it proved to be a great picture for a kaleidoscope.

Original photo was this:

I also took quite a few beautiful sunset photos over the water, so you might be seeing a kaleidoscope of one those photos next week...

My 30th Post! My brother and nephew at Head Harbour Light

Today marks the end of Family Vacation Week.  My 2 brothers and 2 sisters and their families come every year to Campobello Island to visit with our parent's.  They all stay in one house, including the 9 grandchildren!  Early on in the week we took a trip out to Head Harbour Light and I took a picture of part of the group on the beach which is the access point to the lighthouse only available at low tide.

I decided the next challenge to give myself is to collect my growing kaleidoscope collection and format it into a picture book using lulu or blurb or a similar product.  First I have to decide the organizational system!
