One month to go….and info about our blog

It’s been a while since we posted anything, partly due to lack of cell data or wifi at our place.  We just haven’t taken the time to come into town to get the work done.  We’ve been playing instead!:-)

So in the past few weeks we have visited Mystic CT where we consumed lobster rolls, took a “lighthouse” cruise, and watched beautiful sunsets over the water.  We hiked into Lye Brook Falls (the most photographed falls in VT), attended a Volunteer Appreciation lunch for the state park camp hosts, and kayaked Echo Lake and Sugar Hill Reservoir.

We continue to enjoy our spot in the state park and are beginning to see the first signs of color in the trees…hope of things to come!  Most of the staff has returned to school and the park attendance has slowed way down.  “It’s the beginning of the end” says Jesse (the park ranger).  You can feel Fall in the air, a few leaves are falling, and apples are almost ready for picking, pumpkins and sunflowers are everywhere.  We are told we need to go apple picking and try the apple cider donuts….so I’m sure we will!

Our plan is to leave here on Oct. 13 to begin our journey south for the winter.  The park closes on Columbus Day, Oct 10.  This next month will be all about finishing our job well and becoming “leaf peepers”.  We plan to soak it up while we are here.

Now as to our blog…….

Some of the staff here were checking out our blog and informed us many of our pictures are rotated.  We were told this was happening earlier in the year and thought it had been resolved.  But alas, it was not, and we would have truly appreciated someone letting us know this was an ongoing problem.  It is a little embarrassing to think we have been publishing this blog for over a year with screwed up pictures.  But in our defense, our pictures are all in order on our devices (iPhone, iPad, Mac).  There is nothing for us to correct as the images are not rotated.

So we are thinking the issue has something to do with iPhotos not transferring to non-Apple devices correctly.  It seems (and please let us know if not) the images are okay on Apple devices.  We are able to login to our blog on another type of computer and edit the images, but then the images are not okay on the Apple devices.  Therefore, we are looking into trying to fix this with our blog host.  We apologize for “our amateur blog” and will try to correct the issue at hand.  We hope you will continue to follow us and we will keep you informed of any changes.

I am including a few photos even though they may not appear correctly.

Peace, love & joy to all!

Hiking to Lye Brook Falls, the paths here are rocky with lots of tree roots. You really have to watch your step.

  1. You are coming into the best time of the year there. Paula & I leave for Oregon Friday for two weeks. We fly into Portland, rent a car and take a big circle down the coast, Crater Lake, Mt. Hood, Columbia River Gorge and Willamette Valley. Your pictures are still rotated but all of them the same direction. They are rotated 90 degrees to the left. I can’t wait to see your fall foliage pictures.

    1. Thanks for your comments. We hope you enjoy the northwest. We’re working on the (picture rotation) situation and hope we can get it fixed soon.
