Sykesville visit


I had a few minutes to grab a few shots as my better half went to one of her favorite stores in town (A La Mode Boutique) that is closing after several years there. I like that town. Has a bit of Ellicott City feel. The trains run through both of them. Lots of small merchants. Nice people.

Had a good snack at Becks together and walked a little of the town. A chilly day for that and when you got out of the sun it seemed to cool 10 degrees instantly. And with that breeze it was a short visit.

A great time today actually. Dinner with some great friends and saw a great Maryland basketball victory. Now I’m back editing some photos and about to make some prints for some people.

It felt good to grab a few frames and maybe that will get me back to working on my craft more. I hope so because there is no time like today to do it. So off I go like this train into the evening.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The best time to drive is when you’re not in a hurry.
  • I just realized its a leap year.
  • Somehow putting in a vacation request sets a good tone for the day.
  • I’m going to try to become more well-read this year. I’m going to try to read some each day outside my normal interest.

I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.

  1. I have not walked through downtown Sykesville in about 10 years! It looks so different!
