For the Thanksgiving holiday, Josh and I took a nice looong road trip up to Michigan. We had a great time spending time with his family, but on Friday we took a break from a full house to take a nice walk around Michigan State University in East Lansing. In doing so, we chose the coldest day of our trip to visit campus. We bundled up in sweaters, scarves, gloves, and hats and had a marvelous time out in the cold and wind.
A few weeks ago, I was a bit bummed I was missing all the beautiful fall colors in the Pacific Northwest.. however being in Lansing and walking around MSU almost made up for it. Many of the leaves had already fallen from the trees, but as you can see there were still some hanging on.
More photos from the trip to come soon.
It was so nice editing and posting San Francisco photos yesterday, that I decided to do a few more today!
These are all from the same trip, back when Josh and I visited in April. Such a beautiful city.
So.. I’m still kinda sick. Mostly well, but still coughing. Which means I haven’t been out to many places in Austin the last week to take photos. So instead.. I bring you some from the archive.
These are photos from when Josh and I took a lovely week-long road trip down to California (from Seattle) back in late April. These photos were all taken close to Ocean Beach on the edge of San Francisco facing the Pacific. We just happened to be there on what was probably one of the windiest days of the year. My hair was blowing all over the place, and sand was blowing up onto my camera lens when we were walking on the beach. Also.. it was cold. I was wearing a jacket. Not exactly what I was hoping for on a vacation to California, but the views.. the beauty… it’s hard to complain when you’re looking at a gorgeous building like the Cliff House and looking out towards the blue-green ocean. Oh, this makes me want to go back.
Do you know what’s lame?
Barely leaving the house last week.
Sunday I bought more ram for my macbook and installed it (yay!) and now it runs so much faster. The jump from 2 to 4 gb makes a huge difference. When Josh and I were out running from place to place, it was sprinking rain.. then steady rain.. then pouring rain. Two of the photos here were taken while sitting in the car in a parking lot, waiting for it to slow down so we could go into the store. So Sunday was good. Monday was nice and sunny and I spent a bit of time running around to different parts of Austin.
However, starting on Tuesday.. I didn’t leave the house for the rest of the week. I caught a cold. And while it’s not a bad cold, it does mean I’ve been coughing a bunch. And with the Swine Flu scare, I didn’t want to head out to the store, library, etc.. and be getting death glares whenever I cough.
So most of my time was spent inside the apartment, watching tv, editing photos, doing crossword puzzles, and attempting to finish a jigsaw puzzle (almost done!).
Oh well, better luck this week? Hope so!
