Perfect Day

To celebrate my recent birthday, Mike suggested that we take the day off from work and go hiking up the North Shore. I am grateful that he made the recommendation. The weather was gorgeous for early June. Here are a few highlights of our road trip.

After we arrived home, I insisted on a family photo in front of the apple tree in the backyard.

Thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday.  It was indeed.

The Night Sky

I was hoping to photograph the aurora borealis at the cabin last night, but the northern lights never showed up.  It was a beautiful evening and I was able to capture the stars and their reflection on the calm waters instead.

It was a perfect way to relax after a busy week – listening to the frogs and loons and watching the sky.
