Boy, has the time slipped away from me. Summer is fully upon us and I haven’t had time to blog since that “knitting injury” I told you about in my previous post. My ankle is greatly improved though still not 100%. But I am being much more careful with my photography shoots now.

It has been an eventful spring and summer. We took a lovely vacation, I have been designing like mad and I survived another Week of the Screaming Hordes (aka Vacation Bible School). So where to begin?

I suppose I should begin with the vacation. You didn’t think you could escape without seeing the vacation photos, did you?.

What I Did on my Vacation
A Photo essay by tabitha

I saw trolley cars

and pyramids

and really cool bridges

and I knit socks.

I saw Old Mills

and museums

and more cool bridges

and knit more socks

I saw the Titanic

and butterflies

and Sock monkeys (scary)

and Donnie and Marie (even scarier)

and Mr Spock (live long and prosper)

and even a McDonald’s with a caboose (though I’m not exactly sure why a McDonald’s needs a caboose)

and knit still more socks.

And then I came home.

The End

I actually finished some socks but that is a story for another day.

To make up for the long absence, how about a blog contest?
See how many of the places pictured you can identify. Include the name of the attraction and the city and state, if possible (the entry with the most specific information will be chosen in the event of a tie). Just ignore the photos that are the interior of the car on some highway since I am not sure I can tell the highways apart. The person who can identify the most locations will get a copy of my two soon-to-be-released sock patterns (unless you don’t like knitting socks, in which case, I will offer a substitute prize). There are a total of 10 locations pictured because a couple of the photos were taken at the same place.

To enter, just comment with a photo number and your guess for the name of the attraction (if applicable) plus the city and state of its location. As a hint, all of these locations are within about 500 miles driving distance of one another. Those of you who I met in person along the way are not eligible since it gives you an outrageously unfair advantage. In the event of a tie, the entry with the most specific information will be chosen. If there are loads of people who have identical entries, winners will be chosen at random from among the correct entries. If no one guesses anything correctly, a winner will be chosen at random from all of the entries. Contest ends at midnight PDT on 4th July, 2010. Winner will be announced on the blog some time after 5 July 2010.

    I think I might have a “slight” advantage here though not much… Perhaps I’ll let the others venture their guesses first.

    Love the photos, by the way.

    LOL – I guess I am totally out of this one, unless my google skills pay off! I have NO CLUE about that part of the country. This, of course, must be rectified :)
