You must be stoked! I haven't stayed to POR yet either but I visited when I was staying over at POFQ and it was gorgeous.

If it wasn't for needing a room to accommodate 5, I would be staying at POFQ. I loved my stay there last time and it's such a smaller resort. Very easy to navigate. I have never actually stayed to POR though.

Just starting to wade through, adjust and upload a long (long!) overdue batch of photos from my last couple of visits to POR.

Here are a few from the Magnolia Bend batch (the rest of the MB pics are at www.portorleans.org/gallery-POR-MB.php):

Andre those are absolutely wall hangers. So breathtaking to say the least. The first one and the fountain shot with the mill hidden in the background are AWEmazing.

Those were shot with a Canon 7D DSLR, with various lenses (Sigma 10-20 for the wide shots, Canon 17-85 IS for others, and a Sigma 30mm prime 1.4 in there somewhere I think too).

More to come soon, here's another reflection one to be going on with for now:
