Weekly Winners – March 15th – March 21, 2009

March 22, 2009 at 5:06 pm 6 comments

This week’s Weekly Winners come from a variety of locales. I started the week at home in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Wednesday was an eventful day. We woke up at dawn, did some hiking in Fairy Stone State Park, Virginia. Next we attended the planting of a blight-resistant American Chestnut. The afternoon brought more hiking and then a quiet night in a lake front cabin. The weekend was spent in Occoquan, Virginia where I attended my brother’s 30th Birthday Party.

    The waterfall and lake shots are awesome. I grew in East Tenn, and my dad is near Bristol. I love the mountains. Great set this week.

    Happy belated birthday to your brother.

    Love Henry yawning and the shadowy trail shot is really cool. I’ll have to try and get a shot of Oliver taking a poop for an upcoming WW! LOL!

    I carry on listening to the reports talk about receiving free online grant applications so I have been looking around for the most excellent site to get one. Could you advise me please, where could i find some?
