The annual sojourn to Maine is set for today and this year will be a little different.  Instead of the usual hiking, climbing and paddling we normally enjoy, this year’s new amusement will be seraching for the handicapped parking spaces.  As luck would have it, my wife has a series of hairline fractures in her heel, making it all but impossible to walk.

I was originally planning on renting a super telephoto lens for the whale watching trip, but the last minute snafu with my wife’s foot delayed our decision to head north so no lens.  I will look into renting a nice wide angle lens this fall for leaf peeping season.
