Enjoyed camping at Wekiva Springs State Park for two nights this week. Had a very good time. Would have been even better had Mother Nature not soaked us pretty good the first day. The first night, actually. Oh well. This is my fave foto… Continue Reading “Fave Fotos: Wekiva Springs State Park is So Beautiful”

Fave Fotos: When Seagulls Attack!

I love this photo. Took it at Cocoa Beach a few months ago. Once in a while an amateur shutterbug like me gets lucky. Maybe in life it really is all about the timing. Hope you like it. By the way, the main reason… Continue Reading “Fave Fotos: When Seagulls Attack!”

Fave Fotos: A View of Orlando’s Lake Eola Park

Here is a foto I like especially. Lake Eola Park is probably the most recognizable spot in all of Orlando. It’s certainly a fave hang out for denizens of Central Florida of any age, shape or race.

In Praise of Blossoming Trees

There are few things in Nature as beautiful as a┬átabebuia tree. The photo here is of one I tended, watered and pruned for nine years. Lovely tree; it was a gift from our next door neighbor. The fact that a tabebuia only blooms for… Continue Reading “In Praise of Blossoming Trees”

Bulldog Ben Really Loves the Beach

It’s so very true. I’m just not myself if I can’t see it, hear it and smell it at least once a month. Nothing promotes serenity quite like a trip to the beach. I’ve got my fave spots on the Atlantic coast. Daytona Beach… Continue Reading “Bulldog Ben Really Loves the Beach”
