On the Road to Newcastle

I had some time on the tour bus riding to Newcastle to get some much needed work done.  I am juggling so many things out here, part of which is to try and get some design work done for my “day job” back at home.  They have been so gracious to allow me the time to go on this tour, the least I can do is make sure there is time to get some of their needs met.

While traveling I selected a couple of photos and wrote a few thoughts for the update page over on the “official” live blogging at OsmondMania.com.  I should have a gallery of photos selected soon as well and placed on Donny.com.  Stay tuned for that.

The countryside between Glasgow and Newcastle was so beautiful.  I’m afraid I didn’t get near as much done as I had hoped because I kept looking up from the computer to gaze out the window and watch.  I kept lamenting to those near me how I wished we could stop at every beautiful farmhouse and town to photograph the amazing scenery.  I love those old stone buildings and miles of stone walls.  Finding a good portrait location would be a piece of cake out here!

As I loaded into the hotel before sending this off, I was pleased to see the hotel had free high speed access.  I quickly fired up the VoIP soft phone and gave my kids a call before they headed off for the day.  I love the Internet!  Time to sign off for a bit because I am really in need of finding a place to do my laundry!
