It has been so wonderful hearing from old blog friends and having comments from new friends as well...I will try to get to see each of your beautiful blogs. Thanks so much to those who want to leave a comment for me.

I love your pictures of the sunsets. Here in Idaho we get great sunsets while forest fires are burning or we get great sunrises during harvest time. The dirt in the air seems to be the key here.

Great photos!!!

Love all your photos. I'm from New Zealand and we visited VI in October last year - have never seen such spectacular fall colours. We stayed at Damali Lavender farm in Cowichan Bay which I can highly recommend!
