OK.. I'm back..

I've been out on vacation. Nothing gastronomically great, except for some fantastic Italian sausage sandwiches, but it was a great vacation.

First part of the vacation.. 3 nights 3 days canoeing on the Wisconsin river.
We then sailed lake Michigan on my brothers boat for a little over a week. I turned off my cell phone and didn't turn it back on until I got home. It was great to totally break free for a couple of weeks.

I guess I had better go and pick out something to cook tonight...

Welcome "home" Jeff! Unfortunately, the pic links didn't work. Anything else you can do?

Pictures link worked for me and Your Vac looked like a lot of fun, I'd love to do something like that. The sunrise\sunet pictures are beautiful.

They work for me.

Well, you can just go to "www pbase com/sloopsailor (dots left out so it won't parse to HTML). The vacation galleries are at the bottom.

It looks like you had a great vacation! I love the pictures. We are on our vacation right now. Hopefully I will be able to figure out how to do gallery pictures when we get home. I've taken over 1,000 pictures, so I may have to pick and choose a little! LOL

Glad you had a good time!

Barbara

1000 Pics.. well that' the beauty and danger of digital.. It doesn't cost to just shoot.... Unfortunately you can overwhelm yourself with photos.

Hope you are having a great time.

Thanks, we are. We spent time with family, and since then we have met 7 DC members and will be meeting at least a couple more. There has been some great scenery on our drive, and we have met some fantastic people.

I have taken a lot of pictures, but I first delete the obvious duds from the camera. Then I delete a lot of others on the computer. I will have to make a lot of choices when I start putting together gallery photos!
