Back Home!

After a wonderful vacation, it's almost time for to re-enter the reality of my daily grind. I've still got a few days before I head back to the day job to get caught up on things, at least. First order of business is sorting through all the photos I took while at Niagara Falls, Portland, ME, and our quick stop through the White Mountain National Forest range in New Hampshire. We also had a quick overnight stay in Kingsland, Ontario but didn't get to see very much of the city beyond a few blocks surrounding our hotel. We road-tripped it, and the scenery was absolutely beautiful. One of the most refreshing, relaxing vacations I've had in a while. It maybe helps that it's been a few years since I had a real, honest-to-goodness vacation.

On the bright side, all the hours on the road gave me lots of time to plot and figure out Book Number 3. So, second order of business is to outline, plan, and research.

Before I do any of that, though, here's some quickies from my Instagram feed for y'all. Each were shot with the iPhone 4s and processed in-app. In the coming days, I'll share photos that I shot with my Canon 7D when those are all ready.
