Another Foggy Day at Cannon Beach, Oregon

Foggy day at Cannon Beach, Oregon by Anne McKinnell

As my summer on Vancouver Island draws to a close and I start getting ready for my trip to Africa next month, I realize I have so many photos from our last snowbird season down south that I still haven't shared with you! I'm going to share as many of them as I possibly can over the next few weeks because I have a ton of new photos from British Columbia coming and I know I'm … [Read more...]

How Cute is a Baby Burro?

Baby Burro by Anne McKinnell

Baby animals are always pretty cute, but I'm not sure there are any as cute as a baby burro! At our campsite in Why, Arizona, I could often hear the burros eeyore-ing off in the distance. So one evening, as the light started to get soft and golden, I decided to take a walk on a trail behind the campsite and see if I could find them. Please click on the images to view … [Read more...]

Turn Point Lighthouse by Anne McKinnell

As you probably know by now, I love boating. Probably as much as I love photography. Sometimes I even get to combine the two. I made this photo while boating this summer in Boundary Pass, which marks the border between Canada and the USA. The Turn Point Lighthouse marks the point where the border takes a sharp turn.

One bald eagle sits on the top of a dead tree for hours every day. A few days ago, he was joined by a friend... I made this photo while practicing with my new Canon 400mm f/5.6L lens. I love that lens! But the eagles were a … [Read more...]

My husband bought me this feeder as a little present. He always gets me things that are so unexpected! There were lots of hummingbirds around our last RV site so he thought it … [Read more...]

Mobius Arch and My Arch in Alabama Hills

Mobius Arch in Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California by Anne McKinnell

There is so much to explore near my favourite new campsite in Alabama Hills, California. So many amazing rock formations, piles of boulders, and green plains, all with the majestic Mount Whitney and the Sierra Nevada Range in the background. There was even a slight dusting of snow remaining on the mountains during my visit. But even with so much to explore, I just had to … [Read more...]

Sunset at the Estuary in Campbell River, BC

Sunset at the Estuary in Campbell River BC by Anne McKinnell

A few evenings ago we were treated to the most beautiful sunset at our campsite at Thunderbird RV park in Campbell River, BC. This is our view from the back window of the RV! I'm so glad we picked an RV with a big picture window in the back. The estuary fills up with water at high tide, which just happened to coincide with sunset, producing beautiful … [Read more...]
