About Me

About Me & My Blog
Me? I'm just having fun with my camera, learning as I go. I'm late to this photography thing but better late than never, I say! I enjoy taking pictures of things that interest me - mostly nature, architecture and critters. People pics are not my forte.

I started the blog shortly after we bought what has become the Chicken Dance Ranch. I wanted to document our progress as we finished building the house that was on the property and share it with family and friends. Before long, I discovered other blogs of interest and then started participating in several memes with my developing photography hobby. I have truly enjoyed connecting with my fellow bloggers around the world. I feel as if I have become a world traveler through the power of the web and the blogging community.

About the Chicken Dance Ranch
It's not a working ranch with livestock or any other farms animals. Just some acreage that we and our two dogs, occasionally our parrot and eventually our two cats enjoy. Visitors may be asked to do the Chicken Dance with us so be forewarned! Not familiar with the Chicken Dance? Go to a hockey game where it always seems to take place or let us teach you. It's easy and fun. And, I promise to take pictures of you doing the dance and share them on the blog (just kidding - I'm too busy doing the dance myself!)

My Location
Currently living north of Seattle, Washington on the Wet Coast (no, that is NOT a typo) with hopes to relocate permanently to the Chicken Dance Ranch in the beautiful Okanogan Valley in North Central Washington. Our little slice of heaven.
