Coffee, cheese cake and Chinese food…not in that order

We had a nice day with our friends Gerda and Hans and their visiting friend Markus from Germany.  We all went out for lunch to the ‘Fortune Buffet’.  As always, the food was very good and you leave with a full tummy.  We then went to our house had a few cognacs and Southern Comforts followed by dessert consisting of coffee and yummy cheese cake. Life is good.

Danielle and John’s house

We invited to come over Danielle and John’s place for an after Thanksgiving party.  Most of John’s side of the family was there and we had a real great time.  Danielle and John made us feel very welcome. Thanks to both of them for having us at their house.  Plum and Cooper were visiting from Pennsylvania.  Plum is the big dog and the little cutie’s name is cooper. DanielleParty 008

Thanksgiving

As usual we celebrated Thanksgiving at Dennis and Chrissy’s house and as usual….everything was great.  Thanksgiving is by far the best holiday.  Not only was the food delicious, it is always great to be together with the whole family.  Three turkeys with all the fixings….yummy!

Great photo-shoot day at Winding River park

Today was the perfect day to take the camera and shoot everything that comes in sight.  Some pictures came out pretty nice, some are so-so.  It’s all a learning experience and most important a lot of fun.Winding River 011

Celebrating Peter’s 69th Birthday

We had a very nice time.  Dan and Tammy belong to the Elks and we were able to have a great dinner at the club.  To top it off, they had a band playing.  The music was real good and we had a very nice time.  On the way home I had Peter stop the car so that I could take a picture of the Toms River by night.

Animals and stuff

This morning we saw a whole bunch of vultures in the back of our property at Silver Ridge.  I couldn't see what they were eating, because it was too far away.  I took the pictures with my 300mm lens.

In the afternoon we went shopping and I saw a huge buck with big antlers jumping out on the road, hitting a car.  It went over the car and I am sure there was some damge done.  The buck landed on the road, got up and ran away.  I was so happy that the deer made it.  However, I felt bad for the driver of the car.  The damage must have been pretty bad.

Fun day at our camera club

Most people know that I have joined a camera club that Ron opened here in our club house. We get together once a months for a meeting and another day each month we meet for a photo shooting at parks, or any place that is interesting enough for a few good shots.  I am not going to post pictures of our members in my blog, but I would like to show you the picture they took of me….not too bad for an old bag….LOL
