I thought it would be interesting to find out what hobbies our forum owners have besides their beags so I'll start it off...
I have enjoyed painting and creating art for many years. My art pieces have been published in an art magazine several times.
Now I have a hobby that no one in my family shares...you'll find me outside alone in the late night hours...I'm an amateur astronomer... here are a few pictures Im sharing I took through my telescope.
(Moon,Saturn,Mars,Jupiter, International space station).

That's very cool about astronomy! I love watching the night sky, but, full confession time, everything looks like a dipper to me. I love meteor showers!!!!!

I'm a (currently very out of shape) trail and ultra runner. Furthest I've run is 50 miles. I do bring the dogs on some runs, but not all of them.

I also like hiking, backpacking, and camping, though the dogs tend to come there too. It's one reason I adopted Luc (my first dog), because he could come on my vacations!

Though, I like winter camping, and my dogs are all wimps, so I don't bring them.

I knit very poorly. Mostly hats, though I made a simple sweater once. I have felted with wool, but don't tend to do that as I find it difficult to make useful things with them. I did enjoy it though.

Some hobbies have fallen by the wayside that I'd like to get into again - I used to go to a lot of indie music shows and smaller more obscure groups, and was really into following that.

Vegan/vegetarian cooking! And I like cooking Toby stuff with meat too even if I don't eat it. I do enjoy cooking and baking. Vegan baking is fun! Unless you're making sesame street sugar cookies, and then they don't turn out and you're really sad.

Wow you two have great hobbies! I have some health issues so I end up watching a lot of TV but should get my butt in gear and take some online courses or get back into my artwork (my degree is in art but I do office work).

One of my hobbies is being an Admin/Moderator on beagle forums (this one and another).

Boating is our main hobby for summer. We have a fairly large Bayliner boat with a cabin which has a bed, kitchen and bathroom.

Because of health issues I have had to give up a number of my former hobbies I used to paint, learn cello, and sew. Now I am am mainly working on keeping the 35 pounds lost via diet and exercise from coming back :D

I am an artist (drawing, painting, pyrography, although educated as a musician). I am currently working on my portfolio (which, of course, with a new puppy Beagle can be hard, but I'm catching up when she is asleep). I will be turning the hobby into work soon and will be approaching tattoo shops here in the Netherlands for aa tattoo apprenticeship. I had one back home, but I didn't feel I was learning much tattooing-wise, so I am hoping for some great outcome here as there are great tattoo studios here in Rotterdam :D

Last year I started taking an interest in night photography. I went to Yellowknife to see the northern lights. I also like to take pictures of the sun just before it rises over the trees. Just new at it so still have a lot to learn but quite enjoy it. We have a fishing cabin in the middle of nowhere which provides a perfect back drops for photos.

Ooooh you got to go to Yellowknife I am super jealous! For all the time I spend outside, I don't tend to go further north than Superior, and have never been lucky enough to see the northern lights. That's a dream!

That is so cool. I used to do drawings for a tattoo shop. I have some ink and my hubby has a whole bunch. Good luck finding a shop to work. :)

The evening of June 10th and a few days after is going to be a great time to see Jupiter and 4 moons. Look for our moon and if you imagine a line down you will see Jupiter and then also Saturn which looks like a star without a telescope. Can be seen in Canada too.
Guess where I'll be...lol!!
Ok, report back...

Saturn was in opposition Tuesday night to the sun which helped me locate it since it looks like a tiny star with the naked eye. I also got Jupiter and its moons..enjoy.
