Still Here



July is almost gone and there is little in this blog that shows that I am alive. So it goes. We were on a "Discovery Tour" if Iceland during the last few days of May and the first few in June and I have been playing catch up ever since. I do not seem to be very good at the game.

I did not think, until I was home, that I should have been writing when I was in Iceland. That being said, we were so busy that we did not even have time to download the cameras every day and we certainly have not had time to sort through all the photos since then.
I would like to make a book of some of the photos, just in case the internet and/or the computer breaks down but I have not got beyond thinking about the first day's photos so who knows if it will ever happen.

My web page re flowers and flower walks is calling me so I need to make up some maps for a couple of new locations and it has to be done yesterday or before so I guess I better stop writing here.

Sigh!
