This summer I have been all about the mini-vacation.  My vacations have included extremely short visits to Maine, New York, Vermont, Ottawa and of course, rural Quebec. The advantages to the mini-vaca include both minimal cost and time commitment.  If you have a general idea on where you are going and you have a somewhat natural sense of direction/ability to read a map to get where you are going, the mini-vaca can be extremely energizing.

Do you have photos from your 2012 mini-vacation?  Please send them our way, we would love to see them.  Our email address is: fleurbain@gmail.com

Here are some trés amateur photos from my shortest and cheapest vacation yet; the three hour tour.

I arrived at my destination by bicycle.  🙂

the Biosphere, up close.

Some ducks. It is not always easy to show you my love of ducks through photography.

Out of Focus Ducks.  Is it just me or is this a bad name for a band/bad photo for an album cover?  Haha.  I have included this photo because there is something appealing in the form of the grass and soil retention mesh (or whatever you might call that…)

Surprise woodpecker sighting.

The tree stretches as the bird bops about.
