Mini Me

You know those days where you don't do anything really out of the ordinary, but it's just a good day overall and you feel warm & fuzzy inside? I've had one of those. I spent the day with my daughter today - just us girls. :-)

It was only a matter of time

Ok, I'll admit it. Not one day has gone by that I haven't thought of the beach since my trip. This is where I want to be. Period.

Upon closer inspection...

One Saturday afternoon I went out to the area by the Big Dam bridge to take pictures. There were several fisherman in one area and I had a great time snapping different pictures. It wasn't until I got home and downloaded them to my lap top that I really noticed this guy... he's fishing with a BOW??!! Is that even legal?

My feelings went from 'fun little fishing trip' to 'jerk!'. I'll admit, I know nothing about fishing, but this seemed akin to shooting fish in a barrel.

One night in Bankok...

This is one of the vendors at the River Market. I haven't eaten here, but I like the colors & decor.

Happy Girl

I've posted about Bitsy on here before (Happy Birthday, Bitsy & Elvis!), but this is one of my favorite pictures of her. It captures perfectly what a happy little silly dog she is. You'll never meet a Pekingese who is more likable!

Crazy for the Storm

Our first night at the beach, we had a storm roll in, complete with huge streaks of lightening. I got a chance to test my skills with slower shutter speeds & my tripod. Sure - I still need a lot of work, but I got a few cool pictures.

On a side note, this title seemed applicable, but this is actually the name of a wonderful, amazing non-fiction book that I highly recommend - Crazy for the Storm, by Norman Ollstead.

Blue skys & bridges

Yep, that pretty much sums it up. I took this on the pedestrian bridge at the River Market. I like the lines, but the OCD side of me realizes that I should have lined it up much better.

Insert toes here

I'm home from my trip and I'm already feeling like I've been punched in the stomach by the real world. I'd like to be able to walk along the beach right about now and dip my toes in the water. It was so much more effective than a therapist.

Broken Record

Have I mentioned my love for the beach? :-)  Simple things like umbrellas and a chair left seem so pretty to me. Do I really have to leave soon?

This is Gulf Shores, Alabama - a few miles from where we're staying. I took this picture from the pier. I wish I had something profound or witty to write, but I can only just sigh. I love it here.
