[sunday photo fiction] My card says “No Odd Job Is Too Small”. So when received a call about removing a pedestal that used to hold a potted tree, I agreed to take a look, no promises. The thing looked a couple feet tall, and about the same across. If it…

Doors two months after #flood #EllicottCity

Norm’s Doors normally features impressive doors. This week I’m taking a leap and featuring doors of tragedy and hope. A bit of background Ellicott City sits in a valley that leads down to the Potapsco River. Over the years the city flooded, the most…

DelMarVa Doors

Traveling always opens new doors, some of them are worth photographing, others are just for opening. The DelMarVa Peninsula is one such place. The northern portion is between the Chesapeake Bay and the Delaware Bay. The further south one goes the eastern…

Chicken

Pot Pie This week’s One Word Photo Challenge by JENNIFER NICHOLE WELLS is a simple one, “Chicken”. Though I’ve been to the Eastern Shore of Md. recently I wasn’t on the “Chicken Belt”. So I only had one recourse, dinner one night. I don’t usually have…

QAJAQ Paddling on the South River at Galesville, Md. with a hand carved paddle! I even prefer one of them when I’m in my factory made plastic kayak. Amongst us paddlers we even refer to them as ‘skinny sticks’. Go ahead and try to pronounce it and you…

[Sunday Photo Fiction] A Ghastly way to wake up Gosh did I feel awful when I woke up earlier. I had a headache to beat all headaches. My head felt as huge as a really big pumpkin, and I felt sick as a dog. Add to that the entire room was moving. Somehow…

Mingo, a 3 horse town

I’m always on the lookout for more Small Towns. This is possibly not qualified as a Town, Hamlet, or even a Village. It’s just a place. But I’ll call it a town for now. One of my stops on a vacation trip to Colorado was a small town of Mingo Kansas. From…

Train, Tracks, Tea, Terrapin: what's in common?

Some subjects for 26 Weeks Letter Challenge: “T” came easy, with a quick search through the database along with some new ‘challenge responses’. Speaking of Trains and Tracks You might think that cold, snowy weather is a time to stay indoors with a mug of…

Story
Tagline
Get Outdoors and do it.
Introduction
Photography, Sea Kayaking, Bicycling and Geocaching are among my top activities. See my Geocaching profile. All that and in my spare time I spend time at the lathe working on old pieces of wood, I guess that makes me a woodturner. And a sometimes ham radio operator - now W9QBJ, the call my late uncle used for many years, I've held the call W3CCV since the mid 1950's

Bragging rights
Seven Geocaches found via Kayak, 4 of them FTF
