I’ve been a little slow about adding to my blog, but finally here is more to read.
We made a speed trip to Seattle in June, where we stayed for a few nights before boarding a Princess Cruise Ship that sailed to Alaska. Great cruise to go on, one week of outstanding views of mountains, glaciers, and water. Especially great if you have never cruised before; this was our 6th.
When we returned to Seattle we were back in the car, over the Cascades and away from the rain, on to the Okanogan Valley. Who knew that Osoyoos, BC could be so green. It is normally 30+C, but not while we were there. Apparently the rain has been pretty constant throughout the Valley. We stayed at B&B’s (such a great way to travel), we meet such interesting people. Check out my husband’s blog–he has written a much more complete story of the trip. http://2012alaska.wordpress.com/ The primary purpose of visiting the Okanogan were the fantastic wineries. So many and so little time and trunk space! We did manage to bring back six cases to add to the wine cellar.
But, now that we are back, I am getting ready for the 2012 Whyte Avenue Art Walk in Edmonton, July 13-15, where the streets will be filled with art and music. It is always such an interesting weekend, meeting people, working on art while on the street, and of course selling artwork is a fantastic bonus. I will have some photography and some paintings set up in front of Grateful Threads (104 Street and 83 Avenue) near the Strathcona Farmer’s Market. Stop by for a visit. I will be posting some pictures so people can have a sneak peak at what will be available. http://art-walk.ca/ You can also look at my website.
Since I am also a photographer, I’m happy to report that I will be shooting a wedding in Costa Rica, May 2013. I am so excited; the bride is very bubbly and has some wonderful ideas of what she wants. I can’t wait to have such a stunning backdrop as the rain forest and ocean. They have some beautiful sunsets there. Hmm…. I think I better start buying some for Memory Cards for the camera. Hey, maybe a new camera. She also wants to have a Trash the Dress day – how fun is that – wedding dress in the sand and ocean. It really gets the creative juices going.
After that, I’ll get back just in time to get back on another airplane and fly to Europe in June for a cruise on the Royal Princess; its maiden voyage out of Southampton, south to Portugal, Spain and through the Mediterranean, finishing in Venice. How great will that be!
Watch for more updates … I really will try to keep up.
