Field Trip on Vacation

by Kay~Kacey on 3/28/2008

We interrupt this blog for a public service announcement. Well, not exactly a public service announcement, but an interruption, nevertheless. The Impish One, oh son of mine? The one who didn’t have spring break this week, and stayed home? If you’re reading this? You sure better not be having parties at the house while I’m gone. You DO know that I have spies people keeping an eye on the house.

Okay, where were we? So it’s a bit too chilly and windy to spend the day at the beach. What’s a mother to do? Well, drag The Photographer Son on a photo shoot, of course! Well, he thought of it first, but I digress.

So off we go to Fort Morgan. A neat old fort, even if it is surrounded by electric lines and towers that just beg to be photoshopped out of all of the pictures. As an aside, notice the almost lack of hair on my son’s head. He was going to have a buzz cut. Well, one thing led to another…Good thing he’s a guy and just shrugged it off and said “it will be fine in a week.” And, yes, he is still speaking to his girlfriend who gave him the “haircut.” :mrgreen:

Where were we? Oh, yes, here I am in one of my stylish outfits. Yes, the only sweatshirt and capris I brought. Yes, I’m well aware I was wearing the same outfit on Easter. Hey, if it’s cold and windy, this is THE thing to wear. We did have 6 people in the mini van on the way down so packed lightly. Well, except for the 4 laptops, two cameras and supplies, and fishing gear for SuperGuy. So extra clothes were given up to have room for the necessities, don’t you know. And you saw how SuperGuy only used half of a suitcase anyway!

Fort Morgan This fort had just a wealth of opportunities for good shots. The Photographer Son took better ones than I did. I keep saying it’s because he has a better lens. Go with me here. It makes me feel better. Yes, most of these pics are ones he took, why do you ask? Well, not the one of him taking a picture. I took that one! It’s on the point of the Fort Morgan peninsula. You can take the ferry from the point across Mobile Bay to Mobile Alabama. Except on very windy days. Which we had two days like that.

I love digital pics. You can shoot and shoot and not keep thinking “that’s 25 cents” everytime you take a shot like you had to with film cameras. I love brick roads. They fascinate me for some reason.

Note to self, don’t wear a baseball cap when you’re taking pictures with a zoom lens. They don’t mix. Notice the stylish hat on backwards look.

So they can take away our internet, they can throw some chilly, windy weather at us, but we still manage to have a great time. Well, SuperGuy would have liked to catch some fish. Even one fish. But he says “it’s too early in the season.” Sure. :wink:

What a relaxing vacation. Taking pictures, drinking, taking pictures, sling shotting Easter eggs, more picture taking…
Can I go next time?

Those are great pictures! That’s the only thing I don’t like about the beach–it’s so windy!

Kacey, you are making me quite jealous!

Kudos to Photographer Son on that shot of the Fort. I love how the archways keep repeating and repeating. Architecture nowadays is all so cracker box dull!

I see your Internet Cafe is still working :wink:

Love the fort photo!!! Just gorgeous! The texture, the lines & curves, the depth… perfect!

Kacey March 28, 2008 at 11:32 am

Yes, The Photographer Son got some great shots. Me, not so much. But I had fun, so that’s what counts, right? The fort really was cool to explore around in.

Beautiful photos!

Love all the pictures. Who cares who took them? It’s sunny there and so much warmer than it is here. And when you’re with people you love, all the better!

Thanks for all the daily updates. I know how difficult that must be!

note to yourself:
keep wearing the baseball cap…
it makes you look like a serious–
to be dealt with–
photographer
who has better things on her mind than hair products…

:-)

i say that knowing i have so much curly
that i cannot even begin to wear a baseball cap…

[[ i might be suffering from baseball-cap-wearing envy. ]]

anyway…
the archway shot reminds me of italy.

well done…
