From our company Grand Meetup in Vancouver to home in northern NY to working while camping at my favorite beach (Southwick) to relaxing with friends while camping at Cranberry Lake in the Adirondacks. Fantastic week.
** Edited to add that Hudi is definitely the winner in the family category, and Tina is the non-family winner. Great job! You all guessed a lot of these! Answers are now in the captions. **
“Never apologize for not posting in a while. It just calls attention to it.” That’s advice I often give bloggers. And I believe it, but I also relate to the guilt they feel as they put up a post after a long absence. And confession is always a good thing after an action that instills guilt. I get it.
For me, this time, I felt overwhelmed by all the things I wanted to post about. So many experiences and life events I wanted to share. I got some out there, but ran out of time for the rest. So I’m going to do it all in one shot now. Get the images up and move on, feeling caught up.
So I’m going to make it a game.
According to Google, I have been on 43 trips so far this year. See if you can:

Please describe which image you are referring to when you post your answers.
To make things a bit easier, I only did occasions from mid-April through October.
