A Selfie from a Short Vacation

We made it home safely from our long weekend on the Eastern Shore. Or should I call it the Delmarva Peninsula? Anyway, the return trip across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge went smoothly; no delays this time. 

Here's a "selfie" I took in Maryland. I look a little goofy but I was concentrating on getting us both in the frame. When I enlarged this on the computer I could see the reflection in my glasses of my arm holding up the camera! And yes, I see that my glasses were askew!

After straightening and cropping, I shrunk the picture down to a smaller size so it will load quickly on your screen. Not as small as it looks here though! You can click the picture to see it larger.

I took plenty of more interesting (I hope) pictures and I'll share them over the next few days.

  1. Great shot, even with the crooked glasses.. I hope you had a fun time..Have a great day!

  2. I haven't been on the eastern shore for years, it is a different world there. I haven't seen the new bridge and was surprised at the traffic you encountered.
    Neat photo, has that fun look about it.

  3. The eastern shore's a part of that area that does tend to get overlooked. I'd love to see it.

  4. I think it's a fine selfie. And it appears in full size in my Feedly page.

  5. The smile, sunglasses and hat spell vacation.

  6. Great selfie, Linda. I hate taking photos from THAT close.. I have WAY too many wrinkles to do that.... ha


  7. Selifes are always fun and gives your readers a chance to meet you in a personal way. Looks like you both were having a great time.

  8. Fun picture. I hope your vacation was nice.

  9. Nice selfie! There are always going to be little things askew. :-) Glad you had a good time. Do you remember Bird's Nest (wide place in the road on the Va side of the Eastern Shore, on 13)--my hubby's people lived there for a while before crossing over into Mathews Co. They were farmers and boat-builders and watermen!

  10. How fun! I wouldn't have noticed, I thought your selfie turned out well.
