Vacation Love

Well, I am back from my lovely vacation! I have lots of photos for you... but first, a clear-up about the Taylor Swift video: it will be coming out on the 27th, not the 16th. Sorry, I was given false information!

First, my parents and I drove up to a lovely little town because the charterers for our boat needed to be given the low-down on how to sail our baby. So I wandered around for about four hours... I swear, this town needs a sign that says, "Hello, Welcome To The Town That Has Not Changed Since 1952!"


Next, we drove a little further for a family reunion. A bonfire was lit and all my little cousins roasted marshmallows. Cuteness!


I visited a tide pool to capture exactly 309 photos of plovers and other lovelies. I kept about 8. This one is the best plover, and a snail...


I stayed at a little cabin called "the Stain". My family has summered there for generations. It's owned by some family friends, the Cliffords.


My parents left, and I stayed for a few more days. I discovered this scary clown mask and took a picture to satisfy my inner horror film villain.


Now I'm home. *sigh* Time to unpack...

  9. Lovely photos, Olive Tree! I am so jealous of your photo-taking ability! :)
    I wish I was in that town...I wish I lived in the 1950s...but then there wouldn't be blogger! Or such awesome cameras! *gasp*
    Wow, Olive Tree. *sigh* I never knew you had an inner villain.
    Haha, teasing! Looks like you had an awesome trip!

  13. In my opinion, your town doesn't need to change! And I fervently await the release of Taylor Swift's new album, not only because of you, but because I am a huge fan as well!

  20. No, there's nothing wrong with it; I just was going through my Dashboard and there was an overwhelming amount of posts! I found that because there were so many posts I wasn't clicking on many, so I unfollowed most blogs.

  21. Were having a family reunion all this week. My family memebers have been coming and stuff and hanging and playing foot ball and catch. My cousin/half-sister, (yeah. It's a long story... Our whole family is like that..) is a lot of fun. She's like, 23. She's awesoem. She has done everything and I wouldn't be surprized if you had heard of her. She's been everywhere and done just about everything! Skydiving, Hang gliding, Bungie jumping, Skiing, hockey...And she's done EVERYTHING!! And then she goes and *almost* kills herself falling out of an ATTIC! LOL! What next...? She's here now though. Were all going to Fort Bragg!! In the BUS!
