Swallowtail Lighthouse, Grand Manan

Hello again!

This week I’m highlighting another photo of the Swallowtail Lighthouse on Grand Manan Island. It’s from farther away and shows the peninsula that the lighthouse is found on.

We love walking down the trail to get there and climbing rocks, etc. There are also benches where you can sit and watch the ferry, fishing boats or kayakers go by! That’s the life!


Swallowtail Lighthouse, Grand Manan

Welcome back!

One of my favourite places, or quite possibly my FAVE place is Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick! I don’t know why, it’s quiet and small and no shopping malls! 🙂 But I love it so!

When we’re here we do a lot of hiking and I take a lot of photos..maybe that’s what the attraction is… It’s pretty scenic for sure!

Anyway, today I’m highlighting the Swallowtail Lighthouse. It’s the most photographed lighthouse! Not sure if that’s in Canada or in the world, but it sure is one of my favourite places to go when I’m on the Island!

Here’s my photo:


Another Quick Post

Welcome back!

Wow, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted…I thought I might post more often, given that I have this WordPress App on my iPad, but I guess not!

Things at school are going well…there’s so much to learn, at school and then I come home and pursue other learning…WordPress and Social Media at the moment! 🙂

Here’s one of my favourite photos! It’s a humpback whale breaching in the Bay of Fundy, or I guess you could say out of the Bay! 🙂


Happy New Year!

Thanks for your patience while I get organized with this site, my blog and all the web sites I do during the school day! It’s sometimes tiring, but lots of fun too! Wish there were more hours in the day though!

I promise to return soon! Until then, here’s a cute photo of my sweet dog, Zeek. This was taken by my talented daughter, Keturah!


NEW Website!

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for visiting! Today I have exciting news! Yep, I created my very own website! Well, I had help along the way! It was part of  a Web 101 Course that is part of my Web Design Program.

It’s been a challenge to say the least! I’ve had some issues with naming folders—I have to remember to use the proper case on a Linux based system! I also had some issues getting my Flickr slideshow working..it worked, but didn’t include any of my photos…it did include someone’s cute cat photos though! Adding a video was a challenge as the video I tried to include was copyrighted..it was an “official” Foo Fighters Video, so that’s to blame! With help from the facilitator here, I managed to load one that I like with one of my favourite songs! In the future, there will be photography videos here!

If you follow me on my BlogSpot site, you will know that I’ve taken an HTML/CSS course last spring, so this wasn’t my first time using it. I found this to be a good refresher!

You can find the new site at:


I hope you will come and visit me there! So far I have 4 pages completed and will be adding to that in the very near future! If there is anything you’d like to see me include on the site, please send me an email. My email is working at the new site!

As you know, I am an amateur photographer who likes to show off or should I say Highlight my photos. I currently do this on a weekly basis on my blog, which many of you visit at smaracle.blogspot.com. On the new website, I hope to offer more and different photos as well as some resources for new photographers, some videos that I have found helpful and a wonderful slideshow of some of my photos on Flickr—if I can get it working with my photos!

I hope you’ll visit the new site often as I will be adding new material on a regular basis!

Have a great day!
