What We've Been Up To This Month

What We've Been Up To This Month:

 A lot has happened this month. As a sort of sum-up, I thought I would write a post that highlights our accomplishments and trials.

Out and About:

U.S. Space Walk of Fame Museum
U.S. Space Walk of Fame Museum
For the unveiling of their new 'Mercury Room', Chris and I visited the U.S. Space Walk of Fame Museum. It was far more intricate than I had expected. Each section/room focuses on a different era/mission. I enjoyed seeing the actual memorabilia from the different shuttles and crew, as well as learning from our guide about how some of the items came to be in their possession (like a door found in a scrap yard!).

Flagler College - St. Augustine
For a day trip, we drove up to St. Augustine. It's always a fun time when we visit. Although my husband and I have walked the Flagler College campus a few times, it wasn't until a recent visit that we decided to go on the tour. At a gift shop just inside the entrance we purchased our tickets and were led around by a student guide with probably 50 other people. I would definitely recommend going on the tour! From the guide, we learned how it used to be the Ponce de Leon Hotel. Going on the tour is the only way to see the mural inside the dining hall and museum area.

Chris has taken his motorcycle photography to a new level with light painting. He's broken down his equipment and procedure into this post: Light Painting with Motorcycles

Our favorite stop:

360 Photosphere Chaine of Lakes Park
360 Photosphere Chain of Lakes Park
Chain of Lakes Park has become a favorite stop for us! We love the trails around the water and especially the lookout. The height lets you look over not only the park, but also the river.

Our top meal:

Irish Pub Black and Blue Burger
Black and Blue Burger
The Irish Pub on Harrison St. has become our weekly stop. Everything comes out perfect! Burgers, wings, chicken sandwich, bangers and mash, etc.; I've sampled them without disappointment, and Chris loves how the beer menu changes weekly.

Our challenges this week:

Kawasaki ZX14

Chris attempted to light paint a black ZX14. It proved to be more difficult than the red Ducati.

Although I think that I'm improving with my photospheres, I still struggle with shadows...
