I hope I get the order right here...but these are the alleged sunrise pics from the morning of July 21st. Sunrise here was at 5:32 a.m. that morning.

Pic 1, looking at what is supposed to be the sun, 17 minutes after sunrise.

Pic 2, looking over towards Ladysmith on Vancouver Island. You might be able to see some little orange dots...that is the sun reflecting off windows in some of the houses over there. About 8 - 10 miles away.

Pic 3, looking towards Vancouver, 23 minutes after sunrise, the far distant mountains are just behind North and West Vancouver. That would be about 35 miles from here.

Pic 4, here I climbed up on to the roof of the house and once again tried to find the sun - an hour and 37 minutes past sunrise.

Last one, two hours after sunrise and you can now see the sun peeking between the trees...it was another hour until the sun finally cleared the trees.

The trouble is that the fir trees are around 100 feet tall, and they sit up on the ridges on the island, so it takes awhile for the sun to get that high.

Nope, the 'puter put the fourth pic in first place. That one is from the roof of the house. I guess it is the orientation of the photo that caused it to do that.

Beautiful pics Keith!

If you want to put pictures in a specific order, here's what I do. Sorry if it ends up not making sense or if I'm telling you something you already know.

Type what you want to say first.

Hit the 'enter' button on your keyboard to move the cursor down 2 spaces.

Click on the little paperclip at the top of the box. A window will open giving you a list of the pics you've just uploaded.

Click on the picture you want.

Some words and numbers in parenthesis will show up where your cursor was. Move your cursor to the end of that line and hit your 'enter' button twice again to double-space. Leaving these double spaces makes it possible for you to go back later and add text or another picture.

At this point, you can add more text or click on the paperclip to add the next picture.

Repeat.

Hope this helps.

Barb

Man I could just feel a cup of coffee in my hand looking at the beautiful sunrise pictures and feel the warm cozy feeling of a new day dawning. (OK so I'm a whimp ) Thanks buddy.

Barb, I also appreciate your information on picture posting, I will print that out and see if I can get it to work for me.

I'm sure there are other ways of doing it too, but that's what works for me. I hope I didn't leave any details out.

No, don't do that...leave it there. That way we all know what works and what doesn't. I'm going to try some pix later on and use Barb's method. I think what she was referring to was how to get pix in order.

Just waiting for the missus to get ready to go across this morning, and sanded and re-coated the table again.

Yesterday I varnished when the sun was too warm, and in a couple of places the varnish wrinkled. That was from tipping off too slowly. Sanded the entire top with the random orbital this time. It seems nice and smooth.

That is not done yet, but the material for the tub is all cut out and awaits assembly.

I would love to see the finish product.

That looks like a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Sam. It's getting there, not too much more to do outside. But I need to get all the outside stuff finished while the weather is good.

Thanks for visiting, and better yet...thanks for posting such a nice comment!
