Looking Back -- August through November

More looking back in 2008...

The Marmelade Gypsy and I say hello!

My wonderful women friends and I celebrated Halloween in style!

Gotta love a Gypsy!

My friend Nancy, from Colorado, visited. I've known her since I was four!

It was fun talking with my 100-year-old neighbor, Eulah, during lake visits.

A visit to Canada in October brought good times with my old high school friend Suzanne and two wonderful theatre experiences at Shaw Festival. (Not to mention hitting a couple of great yarn shops!)

Visits to the farm market continued. I loved this image from a garden shop at the market.

Rick and I loved our travels to Myrtle Beach for his trade show. It meant lots of beach time!

And time to do a little photography along the way!

When we visited Rick's dad in North Carolina, we enjoyed a long bike ride on the Virginia Creeper Trail! (Well, it was more sitting on the bike for 18 miles, rather than pedaling as it was all downhill, but more fun than anything!)

And we went to wonderful Grandfather Mountain with its mile-high views!

While on the Creeper Trail, I was able to capture these gorgeous butterflies with the camera. They were everywhere and they were fabulous!

Thanks for stepping back on memory lane with me! Don't forget -- comments through midnight on December 31 are entered into the blogaversary drawing!

Hi there-
Hope you had a merry xmas. The MG is a large, beautiful puddy. I like Myrtle Beach too. We used to go in March when we lived in NY. I golf poorly but loved to play there.
Take care and happy new year in a couple of days!

So many wonderful memories....where has the time gone????
You travel a lot....it`s great...
It`s my dream to visit America and Canada, too, but next year we have to renovate our house and it will cost a lot of money.....but if I win in the lottery I will come immediately....*lol* ...I never play...but my husband does!!!
I wish you a "Happy New Year" and the best of everything !!!!
