Favorite Vacation Photos:
I recently finished creating a folder of my favorite photos from our last vacation. There's still more than anyone would probably want to look at, plus I'd like to find out how to add a watermark before I post too many. In the meantime, I'm posting just a few more of my favorites from that trip. It's best to open them up to see the detail because some of them are kinda fun.

The brilliant sunset is taken near Crater Lake, in Oregon. If you open it you'll see a single star in the gorgeous sky.

The forest path is one that I'm thinking about using for my banner...not sure if it has enough color though. Let me know what you think.

The lighthouse is in Crescent City, California.

The one of Terry crossing the street is pretty cool. He didn't want me to take his picture , so he thought I wouldn't be able to catch him if he ran across. If you open the picture, he's in pretty good focus compared to everything else around.

If you open the one that looks like a bunch of sand and trees, you'll see me sitting at the bottom of the hill. Terry was taking the picture from the top of a huge sand dune near the southern part of the Oregon coast! I had no idea there were even sand dunes there until this trip.

I took several of the sailboats in the moonlight on the Columbia River in Portland. There were two boats that passed in front of each other. I couldn't resist with the reflection on the water. I didn't have my tripod with me (it was in the car) so I set my camera on top of a post and used my remote to keep the movement to a minimum. Not bad for makeshift, huh.

The last one is raindrops on a branch full of leaves in Redwood National Park. I just love the way they sparkle.

Anyway, these are just a few that I thought were kinda cool.

Love em all Nancy!!!
Great memorable pics! I would want to enlarge and frame them all!
Can't imagine how you are going to pic one for your banner! Too many to choose form... but I like the winding road pic.

Hi Nan:



Thanks for commenting on my blog. I’m new at blogging, but having so much fun. Our pastor, who we adore, recently moved to Arizona – Scottsdale, to pastor a church which wishes to grow in the manner our church has under his leadership. Someday soon my husband and I want to visit him. We miss him terribly, but we understand the Lord’s leading.



The positions available with IBM also include individuals with functional knowledge and experience with the SAP products. People like yourself that have worked with those in the IT area and understand the SAP products are in high demand as well. You don’t necessarily need to know how to program as much of the SAP work is configuration versus customization. The majority of positions due require travel, but if you’re interested my husband said he can look into what is available in your area. There could possibly be positions in your area which would not require travel. In many cases, IBM has long term support agreements with companies using SAP.



If you are interested at all, or would like to communicate with my husband, here’s his e-mail address: rdmclaug@us.ibm.com His name is Richard McLaughlin. I also cc:’d him on this e-mail so feel free to communicate, should you wish to pursue further job opportunities.



Blessings,
