365 Photo Project – Week 26

Here we are half way through the year, which seems fitting given our circumstances. We’re in the middle again. Living in two different countries, in the middle of a move. We’re also half way through our big vacation, and not fully settled anywhere. But it’s been a great week! I’ll say it again, I think […]

Setting Foot on the Isle of May

Half way around the Isle of May we pulled into the little harbor on the North Sea side of the island.   Brian and Tam had held back as long as they could, and finally had their fun by jumping in the water. In February. In the North Sea.   I, however, am not a […]

The Seals and Cliffs of the Isle of May

Finally, all snug in our drysuits and on our way to the Isle of May with only minimal splashing.   The five mile ride to the island was freezing cold but smooth, and so fun. It wasn’t long before the little smudge on the horizon loomed just off the front of the boat, and we […]

How to Put On a Dry Suit – Beginner’s Edition

Have I mentioned that Brian likes to surprise me? Every once in a while he’ll take one of my offhand comments and run with it. In this case he latched on to “I’d like to see puffins in the wild”. We were already planning to head up to Scotland for the weekend to celebrate a […]

The Up Helly Aa Torch Procession – 2013

So remember how I was telling you about the beautiful weather during the Vikings’ morning procession for Up Helly Aa? And we were so happy to see clear skies with nearly no wind? And how we thought it would be a beautiful night for the torch procession that evening? Ya, no. That didn’t happen. Instead, […]

Up Helly Aa Morning in Lerwick – 2013

A year of hoping, months of poking around for information, a dozen phone calls, frantic internet searches for tickets and accommodation, some ups and downs during the course of planning, and finally we were there! I first heard of Up Helly Aa a year ago when Adventurous Kate wrote about her experience. I knew right […]

Amsterdam’s Canals by Boat

We really didn’t know much about Amsterdam before we arrived. With only two days of planning we didn’t have time to do our usual routine of research before we left (I should say my routine of relentless Google stalking). I really didn’t realize the extent of the canal system. I knew they had canals, but […]

Minties B&B in Amsterdam

What do you do when you decide to take a last minute trip somewhere? Do you book the flight and hope you can find a room, or do you book your rooms first and hope you don’t get screwed on the cost of the flight? Or are you one of those responsible people who does […]

Running Out of Time in Tillicum Village

We were running out of time. One thing we’re used to after years of a long distance relationship, and living on two continents, is running out of time. This time we were running out of time in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle and the surrounding areas had been so good to us, it was hard think […]

Whale Watching on Puget Sound – We’re on a Boat

You should see Brian’s face light up when he smells the sea. He was born near the sea, and even though he has lived in three countries, on three continents, he’s always lived near a coastline. Water seems to call his name. No matter how wild or cold, he seems happiest when he’s out in […]

Caribbean – Scuba Diving St. John, USVI

So Brian has been a serious scuba diver for years.  He dives wrecks and he goes deep.  The first time we had lunch together it was to talk about diving when I was thinking about enrolling my kids in a course.  He’s wanted to get me in scuba gear since we met. While we were […]

Hot Air Ballooning Across the Nevada/California State Line

We seem to be big on birthday trips here in the Kilt and Camera household. For Brian’s 49th I planned a week in Lake Tahoe so he could see a bit of my own youth. I lived in Reno, NV for seventeen years and spent a nice chunk of my summers catching sun on the […]
