Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

So here it is, the "first official weekend of summer" and I keep wondering how it got here so fast!  But what else is new when it comes to time flying lately?  I'd better not blink or next thing I know it's going to be the Fourth of July and then the "last official weekend of summer"!

I hope y'all have something fun planned for this weekend.  As for me, you'll never guess where I am again!  Yep, back in Salem but this time I'll be heading up to Newburyport to cheat on my Nikon with an Olympus for a little bit.  Gasp!  There's a good reason I'm leaving the Nikon in the car for awhile though, I'm going on a Photo Safari with my friend Juli which is sponsored by the Essex National Heritage Commission and a local camera shop. We get to take Olympus cameras and equipment out for a spin as well as get some photography tips from a guest photographer and keep the memory card with the pictures we take. Bonus - it's in the historic area of the town - who'd a thunk it?

I've heard all sorts of good things about Newburyport so I'm really looking forward to fooling around with another camera for awhile and seeing some more of Massachusetts and then spending a little more time in Salem afterward.  I'll be heading home on Sunday, recharging for a bit, and then taking a drive across Connecticut on Monday for a family get-together at my cousin Dave's house.  Whew!  I should be good and tired just in time to go back to work on Tuesday where I start my new shift rotation and will now have Friday through Monday off instead of my current schedule of Wednesday through Saturday off.  Still lots of time for wandering around!

So what have you got planned for the weekend other than remembering those brave men and women who gave us cause to have a holiday weekend to begin with??  Whatever it is, I hope it's fun and safe! 


  1. a post... with no photo. Dumbfounded I am.

    Have fun on the North Shore again. I still say you may as well move up there and be done with it. Need a roomie? With 3 cats? And 2 parents? :)

  2. We are on a cruise to Stockton and Cancun is a short walk away. Sorry, I just had to throw that in.

    You enjoy your weekend and we'll do the same. :)

  3. my company left so my weekend is over for the fun part. but monday i shall honor the fallen.
