    This was a friendly Burro at "The Cactus House". It is a little piece of Santa Fe here in Northern Richmond.

    Not Steve, but....

    Of course, you reply to the thread. Then at the bottom (in the reply window) you will see "attach file" there is a button that says "Browse". Click on that button and find the picture on your pc. Then click on that file to add it. It must be less than 110,000 bites. Right click on the picture file, then properties and it should tell you the size there.


    Hope that helps!

    My son Pierce at the PRR Museum...

    This picture was taken on a trip to Strausburg, Pennsylvania (at trip taken with Night Train and his sons, coincidentally). It is particularly meaningful for me because I have a picture of myself about his age at the museum that was snapped by my Uncle years ago...

    Also, the engine in the background is the last type my grandfather engineered before retiring from the PRR...

    This is my daughter Sara in the '65 Mustang we had at the time...

    Memorial Day on Honeymoon Island...

    This is a shot of St. Petersburg taken from Honeymoon Island State Park (about 20 miles from our home) on Memorial Day... I use a larger version of this photo for my Windows wallpaper.

    ...last one for now...

    My favorite vacation shot- taken while diving off the coast!

    Okay, actually it was taken from inside the walk-through aquarium at Ripley's in Myrtle Beach- but I think its a cool shot!

    Try to imagine how much time it took to erode the hole in the middle the cliff.There is a trail along the top of the cliffs which runs for miles. If you look to the skyline above the cliffs, you will notice a couple of hikers.

    Cliffs facing north. You will notice the restored castle of one of the "Fighting O'Briens" who ruled that part of the coast 800 years or so ago. You can walk up to the top and get a breathtaking view of not only the cliffs but the sea toward the next piece of solid land (New Brunswick, Canada)

    Harry and Pete,
    Love the pics. They are both awesome. Pete, that is your son in front of the train? And, Pete, LOVED the rainbow picture at Myrtle Beach!

    Harry, the pics of the cliffs are awesome! Wonder if we have anything similar in the US?

    I guess it is good to revive this thread every now and then.

    Here is one of our own- "karen." She's on the right- the one who looks like Jamie Lee Curtis?

    Harkness State Park - Waterford, Connecticut

    A duck family swimming by. (Note - I am obviously not the most adept at photograpy or photo editing but I thought you would like to see what the CT coastline looks like.)

    Rocky Neck State Park - East Lyme, Connecticut

    Shot from a cliff overlooking the beach. The Millstone III nuclear power plant is just out of view to the left. Gotta love the warning signs all over the place telling you what to do if there is a meltdown.

    Devil's Hopyard State Park - East Haddam, Connecticut

    The hills surrounding Devil's Hopyard. (Note - the overlook this was taken from is not a fun hike if it is over 90 degrees out.)

    This concludes the coastal tour of Connecticut for the time being.
