November Collage


It snowed almost all day today. I went for a walk around Kenny's Pond to take pictures of it because it's supposed to rain tomorrow.

Blue Jays

Today there were several blue jays on the deck taking the peanuts so I decided to set up our small camera and take a video of them. Joe edited it, just click on it to start it playing. It's a bit long but I think the end is cute. As you can see from the video it was snowing a bit this morning.

Bright Star

My sister was here for a visit this weekend, she gave me this new Willow Tree angel (I collect them). I haven't seen this one in the stores yet, it's beautiful.

Cabot Tower

Cabot Tower on Signal Hill this evening. If you look closely you will see that the horizon is tilted but I had to leave it that way or it would look like Cabot Tower was leaning over.

This is a macro of a US $10 bill. The name under the portrait says Hamilton, I assume he was a president.

Leaving Washington

One last walk along the mall before we left Washington, the first picture is outside the Air and Space Museum. The second picture shows the inside of the Dulles airport where we waited for over an hour to sort out new tickets after we found out that our flight was cancelled. Now we won't be home until late tomorrow night, we're stuck in a hotel just outside the airport (but it's a nice hotel).

The Smithsonian

It rained and was cold all day, so we went in some of the Smithsonian Museums and Galleries. We also walked around an outside sculpture garden.

Reston Town Center

Today I went to Reston Town Center while Joe was in meetings. The cab driver told me it was a small town......looked like a big, busy city to me! The town center has lots of stores and restaurants, a fountain, a Christmas tree and a skating rink. There were people skating there today and the temperature was over 20 degrees celsius.

Today I shopped while Joe was in meetings. We're not actually in DC yet, we're in Herndon, 25 miles away. Here are a few pictures of the hotel lobby. Friday the pics will get interesting, that's when we'll be in DC.

Up, Up and Away

We're in Washington DC for the next few days, today we spent the whole day flying and waiting in airports. The first photo shows Bell Island as we were leaving the airport home. The next photo is somewhere over the eastern United States and the last photo is over Newark, New Jersey. While we are away I'll be editing my photos on a laptop so the quality may not be that great.

For the past two mornings we've had a heavy frost. Winter is coming!

Whenever I write the word November I am reminded of the poem by Thomas Hood. And while this is only November 2nd I have to disagree with some of his words. The first photo was taken near Kent's Pond early this morning and the other two were taken in Pippy Park around noon.

No sun - no moon!
No morn - no noon -
No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! -
