"It did rain pretty hard all night. That could have washed them away." the captain pointed out.

  6. True. Well it depends on the type or rain and ground. I'm from Florida so you would be amazed by what hard rain like that and soft ground can do. Sorry. I'm totally playing Nancy Drew with your teaser ;)

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.
