About Last Night

This was my view.
While I was fishing.
From this pier. I will resume back-blogging tomorrow, to try to catch up the summer. But this was too lovely to leave out before the month ended. Happy July, all!

Backblogging: The non-calm before the non-storm


I was out for a walk around 7pm on June 30th, and noticed that the sky looked weird and the Lake was roiling. I even took a video to try out my new phone video feature:

As you can tell, it was NOISY and wavy. And then, about 90 minutes later, this.

BackBlogging: Mid June



These were all taken from my new phone, but downloaded to the computer first, which I guess accounts for their better quality (and the fact that they are not upside down)? Still learning the new phone/camera, but the pictures are not bad. They aren't dated, however, which is a bit of a problem. Another thing to learn.

BackBlogging: Early June




I have been neglecting to post but not to photograph. Here are some beauties from 6 weeks back. I love the gulls.

Blogging by Phone

I got one of these new-fangled phones, thinking I could blog from it easily. Not quite. But I'm learning. Here's a pretty beach sunset to start.
From Thursday, 7/8/11.

Update, by computer: Okay, so that went comically wrong. But that is how we learn, no?

Lakefront Devastation




Last night, I was going to sit down and blog all the beautiful photos I took in June, so that June would not be a post-less month. The wind had other ideas. Our beautiful lakefront trees have been destroyed. We are all devastated. When we get power at our house, I'll try to post some before and after pics. So sad. So, so sad.
