With a beautiful November day to enjoy yesterday (on my day off no less!) I thought I'd take some time to see if I could get some photographs of a train or two but alas, I may as well have stayed home and cleaned the dining room which desperately needs it!
After driving around some I found a railroad crossing in the Noank section of Groton that looked like it had some potential so I took up a position near the tracks and waited for a train or two to come by. Amtrak is the primary operator on the tracks at that crossing and several Acelas blew by while I was there. Obviously I was not having a good camera day as the best shot I got out of all of the ones I took was this one -
Speaking of things to do, I have a couple of suggestions for you today! First off, you could pop over to Everything and Nothing and wish Akelamalu a very happy birthday as she's celebrating hers today over in jolly old England. Akelamalu is a bloody brilliant writer who always likes to add an unexpected twist to her stories and she also goes on some of the most amazing journies through England that has me wanting to go over there even more than I did before - as if that were possible!
After you stop in and wish Akelamalu a happy birthday click on over to PEA's Corner and enter her Christmas Giveway 2009 by simply leaving her a comment saying "Hey! Count me in!" - or something along those lines! PEA, a real sweetheart from Canada, has put together a wonderful collection of snowmen including a soap/lotion dispenser, toothpick holder, candle, and other assorted snowman goodies that are sure to put a smile on your face and holiday happiness in your home. "The more - the merrier!" for the contest PEA says and you don't even have to tell her that I sent you if you don't want to!
When you're done with those two things you're free to have a wonderful Wednesday!
