Tell me a story: March 2018

The Renaissance Fair is always a fun event to visit.  Lots of characters, lots of laughter, lots of beer.  It always fascinates me that folk who are just visiting often do so in character. There are so many interesting things to see and do.  Amy and I headed out there one weekend.  I had warned her that it would be a long day.  We…

Tell me a Story: February 2018

There are times in life when you just want solitude, and when I want solitude I go to where I know it will be quiet.  This week I headed to the sunset.  There are a few people there at night but it is so big that you can have the time alone to focus on your thoughts and still your mind. Each sunset is…

Tell me a Story: November 2017

Two weeks before I got clearance to go back to work after surgery, Richard decided to buy me a new car.  I was pretty excited about the car, but it stood in the driveway for 2 weeks without me driving it because I did not have clearance from the doctor to drive. The Friday before I started up work again he suggested that I…

Tell me a Story: August 2017

My blog is very simple this month.  I had surgery on both my feet 2 weeks ago and right now it is hard to focus on anything. Friday, prior to surgery, Richard and I took a drive down to Key West for an overnight stay.  I decided I would share the quaint guest house that we stayed at.  It was called Simonton Court.  It…

Tell me a Story: June 2017

It is so hard to believe that we are halfway through the year already.  For this months blog post, I wanted to do something different.  After all the rain the wetlands was not a place I wanted to visit.  Hot, sticky and mosquito’s come to mind.  So I decided to go to the Butterfly House…..hot, sticky, mosquitos!!! Add to the equation birds that poop…

Tell me a Story: March 2017

This month I am going to do something slightly different.  As some of you know I am totally into the Lensbaby products and have really enjoyed playing with them.  In November 2015 a fellow photographer was selling her Lensbaby Composer Pro with the Sweet 35 optic.  I had been watching her posts and loving what she was getting with this sweet lens.  So when…

Tell Me a Story: March 2016

Tell me a Story is live once again and on this particular day I attempted to walk the entire route of the wetlands.  First stop is the rookery and the Woodstorks have moved back in again and taken over.  Late winter is mating season and the Woodstorks are doing their mating dance and building nests. And yes, one or two little ones have already…

Tell me a Story: January 2017

Two months ago I shared an encounter with a Cormorant.  This month I had a noisy encounter with two Egyptian Geese.  They were definitely engaged in the activities unlike the Cormorant who just gave me a lazy look.   Clearly used to people, and possibly used to being fed, these Egyptian Geese wandered up to the railings, made a few sqawks and then flew…

Tell me a Story: December 2016

It’s December, a few days before Christmas and Tell me a Story is due to go live on New Years Eve.  I am not sure if we are going pull off the blog circle but I want to do my best to try. This year has not been easy and the foot surgery recovery is still on-going.  The foot still hurts and swells but…

Tell me a Story: November 2016

Tell me a Story is live and I happened to take another walk.  It would be defined as a short walk in the scheme of the length of the wetlands but honestly it was a long walk for me.  Especially since there was nothing much happening in the wetlands.  Aside from the two Comorant hanging out on the boardwalk railing. The weather was cool…
