Yellowstone Vacation — Hayden Valley and Old Faithful

This is another really long post, so feel free to jump straight to the bottom to see the photos. But don't forget to come back later to read the story! For our second day in Yellowstone we decided to get up early and hit the highway right away instead of cooking breakfast at the campsite. There is a gas station adjacent to the Canyon campground so we went there for fuel: gas, coffee, tea, milk, and cinnamon buns. We wanted to be on the road in the early hours of the morning in order to have the best chance at seeing big game (and of course for … Continue Reading ››

2009 Cottage Vacation

It's been awhile since I updated this blog (again), but I'm not as far behind as it might seem. I've been editing photo's like crazy over the last month and I've actually even been uploading them to the galleries on this site as I go through them. Some of you have even found them and commented about it! But I realize that posting them to the blog makes them much easier to view, so I will be making a new post for each album as well. The commentary will be light, so the images will have to speak for themselves! I will be starting with about 8 … Continue Reading ››

Vacation in Jamaica — Day 2

Our second day in Jamaica (really our first full day) was much more relaxing than the first, yet still busy...  We started the day with a slow breakfast at the poolside restaurant.  When we were finished we mosied down the beach to check out the nursery, the kid's camp, and the dive shop.  They were all at the same end of the beach, so it only made sense to check them all out at the same time. We hadn't really intend to leave the kids at camp, but we discovered that we had to do a "check out dive" in the pool before we could go Scuba diving, and that there … Continue Reading ››

Vacation in Jamaica — Day 1

The first day of our vacation was very long... We left home around 10 PM on the Sunday night to catch an 11:30 PM flight to Toronto. A 4 hour flight led to a 3 hour layover before another 4 hour flight. Just when you think you are almost there, you realize that the line-up for immigration and customs snakes for what seems like miles through the airport. Ouch. But somehow we were told to ignore that line and to go stand in the much shorter lineup for locals only! I'm guessing the normal line would have taken at least an hour, while ours … Continue Reading ››
