Sunrise in Flagler Beach

Finally made it up and down to the beach for sunrise... well, almost :-)  Should have been there just a bit earlier.  Great Sunday - photos, breakfast, coffee and conversation at my sister's cafe and then a movie later on.  Hope your weekend was spectacular!

Inside Breezin'

I just have to post again this week... not that I have anything profound to share.  No, it's just that I can't stand looking at that dog picture every time I open my blog:-)  What was I thinking?  It seemed funny at the time and certainly more entertaining than real pictures of Grace not feeling well!

Someone asked to see pictures of the inside of Breezin' - so here they are.  I don't have a wide-angle lens so they are not the best but you get the idea.

Went to check on her and start reorganizing for our trip..

The dullness you see on her roof is pollen!  In need of a bath...

Looking into the sleeping area - door on the left is the wet bath

Little Bit of This and That

I missed my weekly post last week. But truthfully, it's been pretty quiet around here and not a lot of interesting going on. Grace was sick last week.  A trip to the vet, a few antibiotics, and quite a few dollars later she was back to her old self.  I swear she knows when I am saving for a trip!  Spent the rest of the week working and crossing things off the to-do list (like taxes, which I hate).
No - this isn't Grace, but I wish I had taught her to do this!
The T@B trailer is washed and waxed and ready for sale
(please feel free to pass that along if you know anyone looking).  I spent a little time getting Breezin' ready for a road trip but most of that will happen next week.

We've not had the cold weather that the rest of the country seems to be locked in the grip of, but we have our own weird weather phenomena here...
I swear, this is true-- this is what my car looks like!
Now time to start planning for a trip to visit my granddaughters and watch some softball.  I am SO looking forward to seeing them again.

Hopefully, I'll get out with the camera this weekend.  Have a great week!

Time for a Change... and more flowers

As close as I could get -- wish I would have had a longer lens to get closer!

Shell Game

Air plants hanging from the tree - neat idea
Can you believe it's daylight savings time already?  Wish the weather would catch up a little.  I LOVE having an extra hour of sunlight, not so much when it's cold and gloomy.

Am I boring you to tears with flower pictures yet?  Saturday was sunny after several cold days so I headed to Orlando today to visit Leu Botanical Gardens.  Beautiful place and a good way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Some more flower pictures follow -- I swear I'll have some actual Airstream travel to talk about soon.  I'm waiting for the weather to clear north of here to head out.  Camping in Florida in the winter is a lovely thing, but you have to plan in advance, there are very few (if any) campsites open on the weekends.  They are filled with snowbirds escaping the northern climate.

Almost Spring

Sending some sunshine for my friends that are getting blasted by icy weather yet again.

A sunny (but windy) day at Washington Oaks; a few more plants were blooming this trip.  It's almost, really.... it is

Dinner with Friends

Tam, Judy and I met in Gainesville last night for it's monthly "Art Walk" where local studios showcase artists of the area.

Home to the University of Florida, the largest and oldest university in the state, as well as the Santa Fe Community College, Gainesville has a college town vibe, with a strong art and music undertone.

We started with dinner at The Top Restaurant.  Great menu selection with lots of vegan choices, or local meats.  I had blackened flounder, which was delicious!  As usual, I didn't get any pictures until we got to dessert.  We all shared a piece of carrot cake... I highly recommend.
