Ahh vacation! It was so fabulous to get away. I’m back from the Pac Northwest with a boatload of awesome photos and stories from our adventures.  We started in Seattle ( go Seahawks), hopped a deHavilland Otter seaplane for Victoria and set up in Sooke for some exploring and whale watching. From there we boarded one of the huge ferries through the Gulf Islands and headed to Vancouver. We wrapped up things up in offbeat Portland and even managed a day on the Oregon Shore. It’ll be a little bit before I can catch up and get more posts online, but here’s one of my favorite shots from our trip to the falls in Columbia River Valley Gorge.

Even though the party’s over (and I’m stuck battling redeye jetlag) I have one more bit of  awesomeness… While I was gone I won a sweet little prize in the Spread the Love contest over at JustinMarantz.com
