Storehouse: A Pilgrim Amid The Ruins

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 11.27.43 AMIt turns out that mostly what newborn babies do is sleep (and eat and poop, but who’s counting?).

Which means there is a lot of time to fill when hanging out with a newborn.

So I used the time to work on something I’ve been thinking about for a while:  I’ve joined a site called “Storehouse” which makes it really easy to create and share photo essays.  I’ve been thinking about compiling an post about the day I spent at Fountains Abbey last October, and finally got around to doing just that while we were in Portland.

So have a look at “A Pilgrim Amid The Ruins” on Storehouse.

Fountains Abbey At Twilight

I recently joined a Facebook group called “England from the Roadside” and submitted this as one of my first posts to the page:

These Ruins Are Forever

Yet another attempt to come to grips with my “ruin lust,” this time in the form of a “graphic meme” that I posted to Instagram:

The Old Dead and The New Dead

The Old Dead and the New Dead – Kinloss Abbey, Scottish Highlands – October 2012
I have been posting images from my two recent (2012 with Ann, 2013 by myself) trips to the United Kingdom, experimenting with Instagram/Twitter hashtags to see the posts might lead to some new contacts and or friends when I return later this year.   So far…. not so much.
This is the ruin of Kinloss Abbey on the northeast coast of Scotland.  Ann and  I found it by accident in the fall of 2012.  We’d been to the top of Cairngorm Mountain via the “Funicular Railway” (Google it), didn’t find it all that interesting (might have had something to do with the sub-freezing temperatures and the fact that they didn’t let you out of the visitor center…), so we came back down and just started driving around.  We made it as far as the village of Lossiemouth, and found Kinloss on our way back to the B&B where we were staying in Aviemore.
