There’s nothing quite so precious as a baby pig. Especially a naturally dirty one. Near my home is a farmer’s market with a petting farm. None of the animals are raised as food, mostly educational. They are put in smaller pens on Saturday’s for kids and adults to enjoy, then released to much bigger spaces … More A Photo a Week Challenge – Livestock
Travel + Leisure, Afar, National Geographic, Scuba Diving, Yachting, I’m not picky! Taken atop the white cliffs of Long Island, Bahamas. We were searching for a little alcove or cave we thought we had seen. We eventually found it on the other side. But the journey there was just as spectacular. Unspoiled beauty everywhere.

What is it?!” Me. “I don’t know, but you won’t be finding out today.” Him. “Florida Caverns State Park. Florida Caverns State Park.” Me, imprinting it in … More Crossing Borders
I have met every color dragonfly there is, I think. But this Navy flyboy was something special. He flew so close to me that I thought for certain he would ride home with me on my head. Realizing my hair was not the nectar he was seeking, he alighted instead on this fluffy thistle – … More One Word Photo Challenge: Navy
Apalachicola Day 2 There is something so inspiring about waking to the sound of seagulls singing their early morning fishing song. Beyond that I can faintly make out the sound of ropes and masts meeting each other as the wind and surf rock the sailboats nearby. It’s a beautiful day, I just know it, before … More Apalachicola – It’s Just Fun To Say
Not far from my home is a beautiful, largely unspoiled spate of old Florida called the Merritt Island Preserve. A friend and I were sauntering along dirt roads, slipping into swamps and running into spider webs in search of anything that would make us stop for a moment in awe.
