Congrats on the accolades.
Just seen your award by others on this site for photo of the week... congratulations it did look stunning. Todays photos look very good too. You lucky guys. I believe Shelley cat has been posting her first blog online to Rio and Nala today. We have tried to ignore it.... http://shelleycathomealone.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/ronery-i-am-so-ronery.html See you soon. Love Gareth Rose James and Tom xx xx

That crazy Shelley Cat always has to be centre of attention! She certainly didn't think through the duct tape protest very well - especially then posting it online to embarrass us. We'll have the last laugh though - she needs to go to the vet in a couple of months for her annual injections and so that will wipe the smile off of her face. Looking forward to seeing you all when we're back. Love Ash and Nicky

Gee
Hi guys We can't believe the trip is over Friday.. No ....what will we read in the evenings.! The photos look stunning and glad you both enjoyed the helicopter trip. Ash do you remember the fisher price camera we use to have as a child, with the circular cardboard cartridges.? A certain smokey the bear was in it and was teaching us about fire safety in the American forest. It looked exactly the same picture as the one you took... Just 40 years different, I guess something don't change. Enjoy today. See you all soon. G R J & T Xxxxx

We had seen 'Smokey' at several points around the USA on the entrance to forests but kept missing the opportunity to take the photo. Fortunately he made an appearance on the outskirts of the Grand Canyon and so managed to photograph him. I thought he looked familiar but couldn't remember where I had seen him. Thanks for reminding me. It was funny that you mentioned the circular cardboard cartridges because we saw one of those devices for sale in the Grand Canyon. Nicky remembered them as well and neither of us had seen them for years. The one we saw for sale had 3D pictures of the Grand Canyon.

We are all enjoying your blogs and great hearing where you have been. The cable cars in San Francisco look just like the movies. The boys have a ritual every night now to read your blog before bed and tracking you on the map. Enjoy the National Park love Gareth, Rose, James and Tom x

The weather looks perfect you both look very relaxed... Great to see. I didn't realise just how many seals seem to reside on the west coast. Will you be clubbing whilst you are there! How are you both finding the driving? Take care
