Fabulous Florida...and Beyond
This is one of my favorite photos from our recent trip: a Sarasota sunset. A place so beautiful along the Gulf that I was tempted to frame every photo I snapped of it. I can't tell you how much I'm hoping that the oil spill can be contained before it reaches this gorgeous area...
On our way to visit there, we stopped at Mammouth Caves, where I'm VERY happy to say that we DIDN'T see the bats that the ranger threatened, I mean, mentioned might be inside. My son, however, was quite disappointed. (I'll admit, it was a pretty cool two-hour tour into the underground depths, but I was happy to be back in the sunlight again.)
Somewhere in Charleston, SC we made a new friend. My son named him "Mr. Gray," and he did not seem to mind at all our nearness or our interest in photographing him. Much like a wannabe model on "Project Runway," he seemed rather used to it--LOL.
We also visited the famous fort at St. Augustine. LOVED the view of those swaying palm trees. The Midwesterner in me is always awed by such sites.
And, finally, the Siesta Key coastline during the heat of the day. Look at that white sand!! That breathtakingly blue water!! Sigh... It was great to visit.
However, we are now home and--at 9am--I did a drawing for the winner of the Friday Mornings at Nine ARC. Congrats to Edie Ramer!! Please email me your address so I can mail it out to you next week ;).
To my Canadian friends, hope you all had a fabulous Canada Day yesterday! To those friends in the States, wishing you an awesome 4th of July! And to everyone, everywhere, may you all have a wonderful weekend!
