  1. Thanks goodness I've got enough vacation pics for Twitter and 40 acres (I only took about 900 photos).

  2. Morning Andi,

    Very cool pic. Only 900 photos? Geeze Andi, we could go through that in an afternoon. :)

    Take care.

    1. So true FM. We'll have to work on our patience I think. :D

    2. Hi Candis,

      It's so good to see you. Hope you're doing well. Oh BTW, have you been using the ice cream machine much? :)

      Take care.

    3. Haha -- I've figured out how to make gelato that doesn't require an ice cream machine, and takes minutes to make, which is both awesome and terrifying! :D

  4. That does look like a sandcastle! In terms of scale, if you were standing on top, would we be able to see you in this photo or would you be ant-sized. :D

    1. I'd be easily visible. This particular one was about 60-75 feet tall. I'd guess the tallest ones were 300-400 feet.

  6. Morning Andi,

    I don't remember if I saw Lake McDonald when I was in Glacier. That was so long ago. I wish I had a camera on those travels. So we have a little over 890 pictures to go. Lets get going. :)

    Take care.

    1. It's a 9 mile long lake on the main road so it's likely you did.

    2. Morning Andi,

      I'm sure I did, but the biggest thing I remember is going up the Highway to Heaven (I think that was the name) and looking down out of the window of the bus. All I could see was open air and a long long way down to the bottom. I guess it's odd that sometimes you remember the more frightening things than the more beautiful.

      Take care.

    1. I know I shouldn't be, but I'm jealous of your travels. As Candis said we have to exercise patience on the pictures, but they are great.

      Take care.

    2. Thanks. And you get to see more of them than Twitter because I don't link to my post over there. :)
