Two days after Christmas we traveled over the mountains,
past Spruce Knob, the highest point in West Virginia,
past Seneca Rocks, site of WWII training site for rock climbing,
past rushing waters,
and wind turbines,
to see this crowd:
my four oldest sons' grandmother from Florida, now 83 years old (and their only living grandparent),
4 of my 5 sons (our youngest had been home at Christmas, and had returned to Morgantown),
10 of our grandchildren,
and of course the WVU football bowl game (which WVU won in a cliffhanger 31-30).
Great trip? You bet!
I took these photos with my new Nikon camera. Am I happy with it? Not entirely. The USB cord doesn't work with the camera for some reason. The card reader on my computer wasn't working either. Grrrr.
So I could not retrieve these photos until I soled at least one of those problems. An hour on the phone with India determined that the card readers were defective (duh). A week later the new piece arrived. A week after that I finally had time to install it, and a week after that I remembered to get the camera out of the car and see if I could get the photos. Happy day! It worked.
I'm still thinking the camera may go back to the store; I mean, why would they sell a camera that didn't have the right USB cord packaged with it? Weird.
But still--it was a wonderful day, and a beautiful trip with rare good weather in late December.
