Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Roaming in North Carolina

Roaming in North Carolina

My husband and I sometimes just hop in the car and drive around our state of North Carolina (and sometimes dip down into South Carolina too, seeing as we're in Charlotte and right on the border). He had surprised me for my birthday with a new lens - the delicious new Canon 11-24mm <3  It is the most beautiful thing ever.  Heavier than my other landscape (erstwhile 16-35mm 2.8 Canon lens) but wow.  Just. Wow.  I'll never need another landscape lens again.  My kit is so complete, I'm seriously happy.  It's *so* good, no distortion.  Wild.

The photos speak for themselves really.  We just had a wander.  I *really* need to take that summer road trip across the states this summer.

The Gaddy family had this land back in the early 20th century and used it to winter thousands of Canadian Geese.  People came from all over to observe them here and in fact it was this protection of the land for the Geese that ended up turning this into a National Wildlife Preserve.
