Dory

I had great plans to print out old negatives when I got the new printer. It seems that a lot of them have faded to the point that they are unusable. I did this one of an old dory on exhibit at the National Seashore . I was going to delete it, but got fascinated by its' strangeness. My original thought for this blog has been regular postings, but I have lost enthusiasm and energy, or,rather, that energy has been taken by medical problems that I hope to get under control soon.

The National Seashore is a favorite place of mine. It was the first landing of the Pilgrims before they moved on to Plymouth. I have walked all the trails many times and bicycled them, too. I believe President Kennedy gets credit for establishing it. He saved it from commercial development, if I have my facts right. Best time for visiting is when kids are back in school (unless, of course, you have kids in which case it's a wonderful trip for them). There is a roped trail for the blind with braille signs and
plants to identify by smell and texture. There are historical places such as the site of the
spring where the Pilgrims got fresh water. If you are lucky, you can see whales off
the ocean side, but you might need binoculars. Visit, if you can.

Hi Dee,
I'm glad you didn't delete that photo, it has a very dramatic look.
Hope you are feeling better soon.

Your picture does have a strange and unique look - it's quite interesting. The National Seashore sounds like a place to put on my wish list of places to visit. Hope you get your medical problems under control soon.

I like this picture also.

I hope you're feeling better. I have not felt like blogging lately either. For some reason, I just don't enjoy it like I used to.
