Sharetographers: June 2015: Rustic

Rustic is what we do.  Camping has been part of our lives since Richard and I were teenagers.  Not together back then but from the time we were married we spent weekends and weeks away camping or roughing it.  I have slept in the back of a car, in a cave, in a tent, in a camper, on the edge of the ocean, back to a tent, and now days, we have a pop up.

For me this is a way of life, for many others it is rustic….

Early in the morning - I got up to watch the sunrise, walked a fair way down the beach, settled in to start taking photo's when the heavens opened and the rain came down.

The Green Iguana is a common site down in the Florida Keys and where we were staying they wandered through the campsite.  This guy got really up close and personal.  The Green Iguana is a vegetarian, and fairly harmless, although they do look a little intimidating when you see the really big ones.

This Land Crab's nest sat at the very edge of our campsite.  It was huge and it pincers were enourmous.  I think I was more wary of the crab than the iguana.

For me there is nothing more special than sitting and watching a sunset and reminding myself that this is the glory of creation.
