We built a firepit last year right by the bayou and have enjoyed it as long as we could. Needless to say, we don't use it much in the summer...but just wait till autumn!
Sailboat with Friends
On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, motoring up to our friends' gorgeous sailboat, where we visited with friends and all of our dogs - a fun day! Check out the city of New Orleans in the background.
With the sun set streaking across the skies, and the moon rising, with its reflection in the quiet, still waters - this is my definition of "Ahhhh!".
Red Tinged Dock
Christmas on the Bayou is very different than other places - cold, damp, sometimes windy, but also has its own special beauty. The sunset-lined trees were framing the one, red chair on this dock. Lovely.
This was taken on the dock at Halifax, Nova Scotia. My daughter and I later went to the Immigration Museum and heard immigrants speak about the freedom that they were seeking in coming to Nova Scotia. Sometimes a message just jumps out at you and, after the movie, I realized how much power there is in its message - What WILL you do with your freedom?!?
A huge downpour had just ended, and the sun popped out, illuminating the waters, lighthouse and these lime-green chairs with a lovely view of Halifax Harbor & Lighthouse in the half-sunlight.
Halifax Lights & Lighthouse
The lights at the marina are works of art - it takes you awhile to see them, but they are so clever, representing different states of inebriation!
I love the interplay of light and shadow, color and black and white. How stunning Nature is!
Fronds in the Sky
At a nature preserve in Puerto Rican rain forest, and I looked up at the lines on the fronds, juxtaposed against the puffy cumulus clouds.
French Quarter Red Bike
A hot and blustery summer evening and a resting red bike. Love the curtains!
A lone bench at an RV park in New Mexico, with a storm moving in above. Lovely.
The Living & The Dead
There is beauty all around us....even in something as simple as a dead tree and lilies, gently reflected in the bayou waters....Keep looking!
Driving by an old boat that has been unused for years. Even it can look beautiful in the fading light.
Blue Door Bahamas
Loved the tree roots, blue door, red buds, and hanging tendrils - all different angles in this one photo.
Bahamian Shuttered House
We ran across this shuttered house/business in the Bahamas and loved the various signs.
Walking along the beach in Belize, I looked up and saw this young boy with a lobster that he had caught. He was SO proud of himself, and I can only hope that he brought it home for dinner.
