The Captain and I have always enjoyed the beauty around us…. brilliant sunsets and sunrises, birds in flight, the unfolding bloom as a flower bursts forth with color, majestic mountains, rolling fields of golden wheat rippling under the wind.
Retirement allows me to pause longer! 🙂
I find I want to snap more pictures to keep a permanent record for posterity! 😉
When the sun began peeking out from under the clouds as we drove across the bay bridge one early morning (zero dark thirty),…. I snapped the pic and I wanted to share this beauty with you, my Blogger Buddies.
To give you an idea of where I took the pic…the site is actually about a mile from our home on the Cape. It is a relatively new little township, developed in the late 1950’s from acres of cabbage palms, pine trees and marshes. The developers decided to clear the land and make this community home to 400 miles of canals that zig and zag around and eventually end up in the Gulf of Mexico. Because our laid back little town is on a Cape, there are three different bridges that connect us to the hustle and bustle of a larger city. It was on the bridge you see below that I snapped the slideshow picture that is shown at the beginning and end of my post.
There are so many photo opportunities in this area, but I find the simpler ones some of my favorites. The series of pics below show our Cape, bridges and canals…and I have also attached a marina pic.
This picture is one I couldn’t resist taking a few days ago! The sun was peeking out from under beautiful fluffy clouds…..I just love this Paradise that I call home!
Ron and I once dreamed of living in your paradise, Kari. We had a canal lot very near to you, I think.
Really Sandy? I would love to know the exact place….the brothers who developed the area originally had a story of their own to tell….and a not so good one. 🙂
