Make a Slide Show
Have digital pictures you'd like to tell a story with? This Slide Show Web site is so easy to use and it stays on the website. Hoping to capture highlights of our Chesapeake Bay trip, I downloaded low resolution images then sequenced them by simply clicking and moving each picture. For a snappy musical background, I chose an Electronic tune, after sampling Pop, Alternative, Happy, even Wedding songs on the list. Fast or slow speed. Slide, revolve, remix, fade, swirl, and random mix are a few of the presentation styles. The combination of movement, music, and photos makes sharing memories fun for the creator and the audience. Enjoy our Chesapeake Bay trip slide show.


Wildlife and Trails In Virginia
Browsing Discover Our Wild Side: Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail makes me want to grab binoculars and a water bottle and drive south. This is a ring-bound, easy-to-open flat book of picturesque trail maps, site directions, and site descriptions including specific birds, butterflies, and other wildlife from Virginia's Eastern Shore to the western Daniel Boone loop to northern Skyline Drive. Published by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. View to order or to view on the web.
