Less than two weeks until the next trip!  🙂

Spectacle Lake

I’d forgotten about these pics until a few days ago when I was looking for pictures to go with my last post.  This is Spectacle Lake in Algonquin Park in Ontario.  This was just a one night stop at Spectacle Lake Lodge on a trip to Quebec City in 2010. It was a beautiful, peaceful evening and the lake was so calm. I remember thinking it would’ve been nice to spend more than one night there and sit in one of the Adirondack chairs on the beach and just spend a day reading.

fun with editing

So, I discovered editing with the iPhoto app and am now obsessed with the artistic effect.  Here are a few pics I edited using it :
