Alive, on the beach.

Yes... I am alive!

And I present below, as proof, a sequence of images from last weekend, at the beach in Saquarema. For the skeptics (since there isn't actually a picture of *me* here), you can find a complete gallery update at

Or, go straight to the slideshow -- (look for the crazed gringo axe murderer on the beach!)

This entry marks the gallery inauguration of my new Nikon D-SLR camera. I think you can see a noticeable improvement compared to my phone cam!

I know -- it has been nearly six months, and I probably owe some kind of explanation for the sudden disappearance. Lest one think we have spent all of this time at the beach, however, let me just say that, unfortunately, trips to Saquarema have been far less frequent than my blog posts!

There has been a lot going on with us right now, and for the last few months -- and things have been pretty hectic (whose life isn't???). I'm contemplating some kind of more informative update for the near future. We are all very well, though. Rather than spend any more time trying to justify my lack of posting, however, I'll just post these pictures for now. Last weekend was a great "family" weekend ... with perfect beach weather for us (we barely got burned!).

Bye for now!

Hey Jim!

First of all... Happy Birthday! I know it was last Friday and I'm late getting well wishes to you and I'm sorry for that! Hope it was a great day. Was this trip to Saquerema a birthday trip?

The pictures look great! I trust your Nikon is doing well for you. The picture of Kevin walking with the sandbox toy and the one of him with his hand in the water are absolutely awesome! The others are good too, of course!

Good to know everyone is doing well and I'm sure we are all looking forward to more posts!

Thanks Kim! Thanks Greg!

Kim: Checkout the gallery pics when you can ... there are a couple of shots taken around sunset that I think turned out pretty good!

Greg: it seems like I've been asking myself that question all too frequently!

Take care!

Dude, you're back!

Glad to hear you've come over to join the Nikon digital family. I myself got a D100 about a month or two before the D70 was released (arg!).

Great pics. Those boys have some loooong legs.

But, really, putting Kevin in a Speedo. Nooooooo!

Those ARE good pictures - I'm not surprised though! Everyone looks like they are having a great time. That fisherman is more disturbing in a speedo that Kevin is!!
