Austria Vacation Log: Introduction

OK, enough procrastinating. Time to start writing up the stories of our Austrian vacation. I’ll break it up into manageable 1-day stories. Manageable for you, the reader, but more importantly, manageable for me, the sometime writer. When possible, I’ll include pictures. I don’t have a digital camera, but four friends who do have sent us pictures from various points of our trip. I’ll cheat a little as well, and add in a few pictures that I find from Google. Enjoy!


Undisclosed location disclosed!

We went to Victoria, Canada. We had a great time exploring the city and eating some spectacular meals. The weather was surprisingly good, and we took advantage of it with 2 sea kayaking trips and a hike.


Dorinna's Birthday

Dorinna turns 4o this weekend, so we're making a weekend getaway to an undisclosed location. I told her we need to be the airport at 9:15am Friday morning, and we're coming back Tuesday. I also told her that our destination is within 6 time zones of here.


Red Cross

Dorinna has done some volunteer work for the Red Cross lately. She drove down to Denver yesterday to help with Hurricane Katrina evacuees.


New House Colors

We just got the house painted. The painter painted a swath on the side of the house, which somehow looked nothing like the result. Dorinna loves it, and I'm basically indifferent. The neighbors seem to like it, and they'll have to look at it more than we will.

By the way, this (bad) photo was taken with my new digital camera- also known as a Motorola camera phone. Expect more bad pictures on this blog until I get a real digital camera
