..and so it ends..

2013 has come to an end, along with my ‘365 photo project’..

When I started this endeavour I thought to myself..’oh this will be so easy’ hard can it be to take a picture a day?

For the last couple of nights I have been busy making collages of each month, reliving each and every picture..

There were highs and lows this year..some months were better than others and some we would just like to forget..

January..this had to be the easiest or so I thought..each day there as a real life altering events..just a winter month on the west coast ..

january 2013

February..the shortest month of the year, and the longest too..the dishwasher had been leaking for a few weeks before we noticed..this would be our ‘first insurance claim of 2013’ but of course at the time we didn’t know it..february 2013

March..the beginning of camping season 2013..our first trip of the year was to Blue Lake, just outside of Boston Bar..

April..another camping trip, this time we camped alone along the Nicola River and woke up to snow…I also had hit day #100 of my photo project..

april 2013 the birthday month at our house, Doug and I both celebrated being 54..two camping trips this to Kentucky/Alleyn and to Monck Park

June..the weather was warming up..and we made a trip to Keremeos one weekend, visiting some wineries between Osoyoos and Oliver

July..let the Summer vacation begin..Nehalem Bay State Park was our first stop, visiting with Dave and Carol..and then we ventured to the town of Twisp for a  week..last stop was Riverhaven Rv Park, in Hedley..where the weather turned and we left two days early and headed to Keremeos to ‘dry out’ was a lovely summer getaway!

july 2013 was this month we discovered our ‘new favourite spot’..the Larson Hill exit on the Coquihalla.dry camping at it’s finest!!

December..a cold winter blast hit..and of course the Christmas season was upon us before we knew it..

december 2013 as the year 2013 is now over and we are embarking on 2014 it is nice to look back on a short and concise re-cap of the year past…


  1. Well done recap with the collage idea. That was quite a task you set for yourself with a photo a day. A bit of pressure I'm sure some days coming up with a subject. You may miss the challenge now in 2014 but it's probably not something you would care to do all over again each day for another year.

  2. Excellent job. I didn't even attempt to do the project for one day!

  3. Wonderful wrap up. I love the collages..

  4. That is such a great recap!

  6. Good 12 month overview of your self imposed task of taking one photo/day.

  7. Hi Sue, Loved the collages from 2013! Great keepsake for the year!
    I hope there are no more floods in 2014! :)
    Best of wishes for a Happy and Healthy New Year,

  8. Love the collage idea to end of the year. I am doing this for 2014 and have missed a few days but love your collage idea for the end of the year...and yes taking a picture a day is quite the task in the long run!
