First Day of Spring - Cunningham Falls

It was the first day of Spring so Peg and I decided to take a cruise up to Cunningham Falls State Park in Maryland. The park has a nice 78 foot waterfall that is an easy hike from the parking area. As a bonus, it was the last week of the Maple Syrup Festival and they were tapping trees and making syrup.

Many of the trees had several buckets collecting the syrup

The air was filled with the scent of maple syrup

Springtime had all the streams running

My little wood nymph playing in the forest

Many beautiful moss covered rocks

A little HDR action on the rocks

The falls

All the recent rains made for plenty of cascading waters

Just up the road a bit is the Roddy Road Covered Bridge


  1. Tapping maple trees always makes me think of the Little House books....maybe it was Little House in the Big Woods where they talk about tapping the trees and making candy?

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
