Drive to Cape Pogue Lighthouse

Picture 1 of 7

This morning we took a guided tour out onto the Cape Pogue Wild Life Refuge. The refuge is managed by the “Trustees of the Reservation.”  Mary was our driver over the dunes, and out tour guide.  We had a wonderful time, and these pictures don’t do the place justice.

Out and about in OKC

A rare Saturday morning in the fall with nothing to do!  No football games, no baseball practices, no work!  Robbie and I got up early (well, not that early) and jumped on our bikes, rode down to my favorite coffee shop, Coffee Slingers.  They seem to be the only coffee shop in town that can make a real cappuccino (and not just a frothy latte).  After coffee, a cinnamon roll and a few pics, we rode down to the OKC bombing memorial.  I brought along my M6/summicron 50 with Kodak Ektar 100.  These are Wallgreens scans which I always find a bit saturated and contrasty, but saves the trouble of scanning with my CoolScan unless I need higher quality.

Paines Prairie State Preserve

During our recent spring break trip to Florida we made a quick morning trip to a state park on the outskirts of Gainesville.  The Paines Prairie State Preserve is a facinating place.  It is a flat prarie with areas of swamp and sink holes.  It is home to a large variety of wild life, including dozens of species of birds, alligators, and even bison!  The kids loved it!
