TWiP: Downtime

It took me three days to notice that my website was unavailable. Oops! I think I can be forgiven at least for two of those days. Right now I’m with the family in Ocean City, enjoying our annual Jersey Shore getaway. I have purposely been spending as little time as possible on the computer.

Yesterday, though, I walked more than 7 miles, and my feet/legs currently hate me, so I thought I’d let them rest while I published this week’s TWiP post. Only, was not available. Ack!

If this had been a regular weekend, I would have dropped everything and made it my number one priority to bring my website back. But it’s not a regular weekend. And so I had some lunch, took a leisurely stroll down the boardwalk, checked out a bunch of cars on display for the “Muscle Car Invasion” that’s going on today, tried on a t-shirt I wanted to buy, sat on a bench with Neil for while, and then figured out what was wrong with 😁

Anyway, the site is back, and I’m still on vacation, so I’ll be signing off now. The beach is calling…

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2018 is mornings: #myyearofmornings2018) and any other extra images I may have posted.

📷 = taken with my Canon EOS 80 D
📱 = taken with my Samsung Galaxy S7

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
