Okay better sneak one in while we can still call her ours.

The criteria

Holiday

Decorated

Okay lets see - this shot was taken on our last Holiday and as for the decorations we have all the systems running and the para - F needed for a bonus holiday - brand new folding bikes, patio mat, portable table we won at a WBCCI dinner, bag chairs with the old bag laying on the ground and a couple of wind chimes hanging off the windows.


Or you could say that she is decorated by the beautiful palms and OPEN space. Seems we always stay long enough to have the place to ourselves:D :D or get there before everyone arrives;)

PS I wonder who did not put the awning all the way up??? It is up and down like a yo yo in the wind at Paradise park - but it was calm that day and the sun had not reached the other side yet to bake us into little raisins....good thing our AC runs really COLD - hmm could I put a few more pitches in there.....

My Christmas gift from my Hubby last year. If you look close you can see the Airstream parked in the background. Maybe I should put the lamp in the front window of the Airstream and try to get a shot!

Photo taken in Steamboat Springs State Park - one of the most beautiful state parks in the country (IMHO).
We spent four weeks there this summer and never saw another airstream! Our last week, in September (when this pic was taken) it snowed and we had the whole park practically to ourselves.
We made this our Christmas card picture!

A day in Arches
 
This will be my first ever attempt at posting a pic. Nothing Christmasy, just a recent day in Arches park before we parked the Airstream for the winter. We just bought our first 25" ?? 81 Excella 2 back in June. At this point we'd replaced the blue stripe. After we docked it I finished polishing. Right now I'm working on the interior, and should have my new carpet in this week.
Charlie

Pacerized 12-18-2006 08:07 PM

Well it looks like that didn't work. I tried the manage attachments button, and selected my pic. When I just tried again it said my file size was too big. Does anyone know how to compress a picture file?


Thanks: Charlie

str8strm 12-18-2006 09:46 PM

Charlie:
I'm certainly no expert, but here goes. I have a program called Photosmart on my laptop (there are several diffenrent ones out there). I bring my photos up via that progarm and use the "Edit" function. There I edit the photos to "email" size (about 640x480). Then I do the steps that you used. Voila! Deb won't believe that I gave someone computer instructions.:lol:

I'm very new at using a digital camera, and didn't have the photosmart program, but I did have a photo program that came with the camera. After installing it, I was able to edit the size easily. I was able to get the file to upload, so I'll try this again.

Thanks: Charlie

str8strm 12-19-2006 10:45 AM

Success! Nice Shot.

Pacerized 12-19-2006 10:44 PM

Thanks for the advice. I thought there would be a way to edit the pic using the standard windows media program, but it looks like this worked fine. That was one great campsite, I have it booked again for our first outing in the spring. It's so rural in that part of Utah that there's no light polution. I've never seen such detail in the night sky. We had a blast climbing on the rocks with the kids, and it's within a short hike to several arches. Not a place to go in the summer though.
