Memories of a time gone by....

As I close my eyes, I can see the fire crackling and smell the smoke...

With the of the passage of time one can hardly see my mother chatting with my daughter, but I'm sure the memories of these times will last my daughter a lifetime!

Hope you enjoy

Doug, this is a beautiful picture! It's such a peaceful serene setting, and I love the "barely there" images of the people. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Yolanda for your kind words. It took a bit to create, but I had nothing better to do the other day as it snowed (again). Good thing our new baby is undercover in a heated shop..... Don't want her to get cold now do we.....lol

Hope all is well on the coast!

Buy the way - if you get a chance ask Phil the best grill for us to buy as I'm assuming he will know a thing or two about that type of stuff....

Cheers
Doug

Doug, You have the snow, we have the rain. Your "baby" is definitely getting the star treatment. Undercover in a heated shop! Does it get any better than that!

We have a Weber at home and love it. But I'm sure you're asking about portable grills. We bought a Coleman Roadtrip Grill. Just like anything here on this forum, you'll get a million different opinions on the best grill. We bought the Coleman for one reason: it was almost free! I had a gift certificate to Sports Authority (of all places) given to me at work. The gift certificate was enough to cover about 95% of the cost, so we bought it. And it's actually a great grill. 10,000 BTU's for each side (total 20,000). Super easy to set up, and easy to fold down. It has legs, so no need to find a table to set it on. Cooks steaks and hamburgers perfectly. Haven't tried much else on it, but it works for us.

You can hook it to the propane port, but then you have to buy an propane hose. Instead, we ended up buying one of those small little propane bottles, works great.

Phil's advice, if you can get it for free - go for it! Otherwise, get one that's durable and has enough BTU's. He had his eye on the the Weber Portable Grill. But we haven't really done much research on it, but it looks nice. A bit more BTU's, but it has no legs, so you'll need a table. There's trade-off's in everything I guess.

Found this article about portable grills:
The Best Mini Gas Grill for Destination Cookouts

We hope to see you in October. And word of warning, I'm going to pick your brain for a few photography tips!

Hi Yolanda - Thanks very much to the both of you for the advise. I will look into it as soon as I get time.

You are more than welcome to pick my brain on Photography anytime! It should not take long as there is not much left.... Or at least that's what Sharon tells me.

If we can get to meet up in October it should be fun and the photography will not be bad either. I plan to bring my big kit so I will have the ability expand my effort a bit. I also want to stop at Zion after the balloon fest and do a bit of exploring there. I have a client who wants some nature light paintings done from that area, so that will be interesting...

After looking at your website - I think it will be me who is picking your brain!
