Welcome Friends!

Last week’s photo challenge from Ailsa at “Where’s my backpack” was such a huge success,
that she offered up another photo challenge this week:

A Travel Theme:  Summer Vacation

Since it’s hard to beat thoughts of summer for a quick pick-me-up, 
(especially on these cold, rainy days), I decided to play along again.

(Please be patient with me.  This is my first attempt at creating a VIDEO.)

From the Connecticut shoreline towns of Mystic & Niantic,
to the beaches of Cape Cod Massachusetts,
these photos are some of my favorite “SUMMER” shots.

NOW:  If you’d like to extend your VACATION,
stop by Ailsa’s blog:  [ "Wheres my backpack?" ]
 to see what says “SUMMER” to her, and also
take a dip into the links that people are sharing on her site.

Hope you ENJOYED this TASTE of SUMMER!
And come back again – real soon!



  1. Wow, CT looks wonderful - and it's not too far from NY where I am at the mo, I must pay a visit. I've been meaning to get to Boston, but now it looks like I may have to explore some more! Great photos, and check you out with your first video. Two thumbs way up! xxx Ailsa

    1. Thanks, Ailsa! Glad you enjoyed the video! :-) And, by all means, check out our lovely state of CT when you get the chance. But, I have to confess... if you're heading for the beach -- the National Seashore on Cape Cod Mass has all our CT beaches beat -- hands down. You can walk the beach for miles out on there. If you DO make it to Massachusetts (on this trip, or another) try to get out to the (Atlantic side) beaches in Eastham, Orleans, Truro, Wellfleet, Chatham.... all beautiful!! Enjoy your "summer" and thanks for this challenge. It's still cold and rainy here, but I have SO enjoyed my summer vacation! :-))

    1. Thank you! It was an experience, but... I'm learning! :-) LOVED your kayaking pics, by the way -- and I'm right there with you! :-) Just got my first kayak (ever) last summer and love it! Have already been out twice this spring -- thanks to this crazy CT weather we've been having. Thanks for sharing the photos. :-)

  3. Just set a new travel theme challenge I'd love you to join in, if you have the time! Pass it on, everyone's welcome :) xxx Ailsa
