Sunday at Mayport

Been awhile since I’ve been there. No crowd, in fact the base looked almost as deserted as a ghost town. Couple of ships in, wasn’t able to read a name and I don’t know the numerical designations (the one close to the road was 21, if that helps you any) – and no, I didn’t […]

Happy Happy Happy!!!

On this day in 1986 – about 5 minutes ago, to be precise – my Lovely Daughter came into this world, and changed my life forever. I don’t have the words to tell you what a blessing she’s been…she’s funny and smart and loving and kind…but also snarky – no idea where THAT would come […]

Second Home…

Pensacola Beach This was taken at sunset, on my first trip to the National Seashore at Pensacola. Bay on one side, Gulf on the other…which you can’t see in the picture. It reminded me of my beloved high plains… I’ve been back once since then, and am going again in two weeks. Love it!
