Looking forward to a great 2018, more photos and more adventures!
2018 Photography Goals
Gonna try to post more in the journal and on my photos page.
I am also hoping to get a shop page up to sell some of my prints, I found a good local photo lab, and recently got some of my photos printed and I was very happy with that (so keep an eye out for that page).
I am hoping to shoot with more people, I would love to find some local people in Baltimore, if you are interested email me (email@example.com).
We really haven’t had any trips yet in 2018 but we are going skiing in West Virginia this coming weekend so there will be some new photos up from that. We also have a trip planned out west in March which is going to be a lot of fun too, its been a while since I have been out there. Might have another big one late in 2018 but not sure yet. We will also be doing a lot of camping trips!
We ended our trip with a little camping in the mountains. We high tailed it from the coast of NC all the way to the Blue Ridge mountains. We ended up making it to our camp site at around 6pm, and to our surprise, there were several campsites still available. This was the first time at this place, Cave Mountain Lake Campground, and I have to say I was very pleased with it, it was very clean the camp volunteer was extremely friendly, great bathrooms, and the sites themselves were very nice! I would highly recommend it if you are in the area or looking to get away for the weekend. There is a lot of hiking and Natural Bridge is also close by if you haven’t been there before.
We are on the road now, on vacation with bear before he has to go back to school. This is probably our last beach trip of the summer/year, we are currently in the outer banks of North Carolina. NC isn’t that far from where we live now, only a 7ish hour drive, there is only really one quick way of getting down here and that is 95 which was, of course, a mess and it took us much longer to get here than we had planned on but we made it. We are currently in a cabin on Cape Lookout, which is beautiful, and pretty empty, probably cause the only way to get here is by ferry. The cabins aren’t fancy by any means but they have all the basic, and important, amenities (bathroom with shower, kitchen, and some beds) oh and a nice little porch overlooking the ocean. So far the weather has been really great and we have been able to spend our time out on the beach. Some of my goals for this trip are to do yoga every morning, spend more time reading, and also writing (here). So far so good on all of them!
Coming down here we didn’t have any eclipse glasses, we were a little too late to the game to order them. But to our surprise and luck when we got down here and checked into our cabin the park ranger had two left, and we were also lucky enough to have a great day for viewing it!
We still have a few more days here till we start making our way back north, we might try to hit a campground in the mountains before the end of this, but Labor Day weekend I think we will spend it at Dolly Sods doing some tent/hammock camping.
