Peaks of Otter Again

We went to Peaks of Otter again last Saturday. The Fall foliage was not as pretty as our 2005 hike, but the trails were better than when we tried them last January. The weather was beautiful and perfect for our trek up Sharp Top (the adjacent mountain). We weren't able to secure reservations in the lodge, but we had dinner at the restaurant prior to returning home.

Megan and Pumpkins

Fall is here and the air is crisp and clear. I decided to take some pictures of Megan by the pumpkins beside our home. After setting the tripod low and taking the first pictures, Meg wanted to try her hand at photography.

The big picture is the one that I took first. The first of Megan's photos is of Granddaddy acting silly. I was trying to keep her in a jovial mood. I got in front of the camera and told Megan to be the photographer and take MY picture. Much to my surprise - SHE DID IT! The picture on the right is the one that Megan took of Mimi and Grandaddy. The picture on the bottom is one that Meg took of her dad after I called him out to show him her new skills.

Not bad for a 2-year-old!
