The holidays wouldn't be complete without a visit to the in-laws.
My in-laws live in the retirement community of Hershey's Mill, Pennsylvania.
The Sullivan House, above, is the historic building of the original estate, now used for catered parties. Hershey's Mill is many acres of condos and single family units that are part of the retirement community.
My in-laws love it there. There is the community center with a golf course, restaurants, pool and so much more. The most important feature is a society of people near their age for socializing.

Autumn colors here on Long Island...
Many trees are already bare. I realized, as I walked through the Bayard Cutting Arboretum, that I waited a week too long. The red maples seemed to be the only trees with color, still holding onto their leaves.
I'm happy to be back on Long Island with Thanksgiving just a few days away!

My work for Harbour Village is finished!
My husband Chris and I took hundreds, maybe thousands, of photos of the Harbour Village Beach Club Resort and finally finished the selection and processing in Photoshop CS2.
Our final count: 200 photos.
Yep, that's the final count, just of the resort.
It is amazing how, after looking at all the photos over and over, you can see the minor differences and make a decision on what is more pleasing to the eye...based on color, composition, sharpness,....so many photos are rejected.
Now my fingers are crossed and I will wait for the response from the resort.
I never thought that after retirement from teaching I would be taking photos and making money from it. It happens now all the time. I'll never get rich from this, but I love it and the extra money is a bonus!
Above are just three photos of the Harbour Village Resort in Bonaire.

Bonaire is known for being a great place to learn windsurfing due to the mild, consistent winds and the shallow waters of Lac Bay.
