At the Beach

I am afraid with my not posting for a while on my blog I have lost my followers. I was at the beach the last two weeks so I didn't post or paint much. I will get back into the swing soon. We drove to Florida and back. I had not done that since I was a kid. There are much more distractions for the ride than I used to have. As a kid we had no air conditioning. We would all be packed into the family sedan with just coloring books, word finds books and candy. We were ready to kill each other before we got there. Even though our trip was not easy it was much easier than my childhood car trips. This time we had the DVD player to watch movies on and I had my Ipod if I didn't like the music my son choose to play. We watched a lot of "Everyone Loves Raymond". People say I remind them of Debra Barrone. I think I am a bit less mouthy! Plus I did do some driving during the car trip. They didn't let me do that when I was a kid! I think I would have driven a bit faster than my Dad. He was a farmer and was not used to the expressway--but that is another story!

Mote Aquarium

Visited Mote Aquarium with week in Sarasota Florida. They have a great collection of aquatic wildlife there--sharks, turtles, manatee to name a few. I found the design on the turtles shell to be particularly interesting and took a few photos. I hope you enjoy them.

Fish Art

This is a funky art shop along I-80 on Tybee Island, Georgia. They sell all kinds of fish theme items made from reused stuff aka junk. I thought it was fun and charming. My boys thought it looked like junk. Art is in the eye of the beholder!

Shortly after starting my new job I left on vacation. They knew this before I was hired. So my blog has been neglected. Right now I am traveling in the southern regions on of the United States. I have a fondness for clouds and have taken several photos. The clouds have hung around a bit more than I would like. We have had a few days when it was cloudy and it rained on and off all day. We had one day where it rained all day! The nerve-- to rain all day on my vacation!
