Happy New Year and All the Very Best to You and Yours for 2023

(Famous Canadian 2-headed moose above)lol

I want to wish a Happy New Year to everyone and give thanks to everyone who reads my Blog and/or enjoys my photos.

You know who you are and I appreciate the time you spend reading my posts. I have been doing this Blog a very long time and have not reached as many people as I would have liked but I do enjoy writing it and posting my photos. I guess I will stick around a while longer and keep on writing.

I also want to thank my husband for editing my posts as well as all his support, friendship and love. Thank you Clint ! He has a photography website, if you click here you can see his photos.

I almost forgot to thank Trum! It’s because of him I started this Blogging adventure so Thanks Trum. And no I don’t get embarrassed carting him around, trust me I have done way more embarrassing things than that! lol

This winter I did a presentation on my wildlife photography and in the spring, Clint and I did (together) a presentation of our trip to India for the Armchair Traveler series at our local City library. Clint also did a solo presentation at our Probus club on “Photography Then and Now.” We really do enjoy sharing our photos and stories.

We traveled quite a bit in Ontario and the Province of Quebec and had a lot of fun this year as well as some heartache but all in all, 2022 was an okay year, could have been better, could have been worse. That’s the only way I can sum it up properly. However, we are very grateful for what we have.

2023 is going to be great! We have lots planned, hopefully weight loss is included in that! But you know, I will soon be 64 years old so I don’t worry about that as much as I used to. We keep active and try to eat healthy……or healthy-ish haha

I wish everyone great health and happiness in 2023 ! Stay safe and stay strong.

Now….here are a few photos from this year of things we did, places we have been………(You will notice a LOT from Algonquin Park, I think we spent 6 or 7 weeks there this year and it IS my favourite place……..)

  2. Susan, I’ve enjoyed your photos and narrative about your RV travels this year and am envious of the sights you see and the photos you take. I promise myself when I retire, I may not be traveling like you two, but I would like to get a more powerful lens than the kit lens I have (75-300mm) and maybe I’ll get some close-ups like you have. I liked all the photos you chose for your year-end wrap-up and went to look at Clint’s photos. I looked at 2021 and wow is all I can say. Clint likes taking moose pictures too. 🙂 He had many other photos I liked … the two deer were so sweet. Hard to pick a favorite with either of your photos. I will soon have 10 years for my blog and the first four and one-half years, I had a handful of e-mail subscribers, just two ever commented … finally in November 2017, a WordPress blogger wrote a comment. It appears like I have a lot of followers, but I only interact with ten or fifteen tops and not all on an ongoing basis. Trum is a cutie and I ordered the fixin’s from Amazon to repair Joe the brown felt monkey and provide him a tail for my 2023 Mother’s Day post.

    1. Thank you for your comments, I’m glad you enjoy my posts Linda. As I enjoy yours! Yes Clint likes moose too lol. We are always standing side by side, well usually anyways so we quite often have almost the exact same shots. I think I have been maybe I have been doing this Blog about 7 years if I remember correctly. Yes Trum is a cutie and I think it’s great that you are going to fix the brown felt monkey! It must hold a lot of memories.

      1. You are welcome Susan – it is nice to see what other nature lovers are seeing and photographing. Photography is a great hobby to have and your blog and Clint’s site are a great way to share those photos. I thought you two might be taking similar photos, then comparing notes later. I generally write a short draft of what I saw or did on each walk as I’d never remember where I was, but you spend a lot of time at Algonquin Park so likely don’t have to do that. Blogging is a labor of love, that is for sure. Today I spent another five hours going through the last weekend of July photos. (Only July … September through mid-November await me – I didn’t take any big camera photos in August.) Yes, I will leave Joe the monkey out for good now that he will have a tail again and it will be a fun post to write. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Julie! I enjoy your photography too! Too bad some of our clubs haven’t started up so we can see each other sometimes.
      All the best to you and your family for this year, which is gonna be great!


      1. Thank you Susan.
        I wonder if the clubs a will even startup again. It was sad to see the Napanee club fold.
        In the meantime time I will enjoy you photos through social media and hopefully we will bump into one another in our photography travels.
        Cheers to a wonderful 2023
