: Pandora's Beauty Box
Yesterday, I went sailing on my Uncle’s 40 ft boat. Evidently, many other people had the same idea and were parked on the bay side with their flags displayed. As we approached the Gulf Side of Shell Island, a rainbow appeared. It was truly magical- A promise of remembrance of those who paid the ultimate […]
Along Crawfordville highway in between Panacea and Tallahassee is a Ford Car Graveyard. Twenty + cars dated from early 1900’s to mid are arranged in a semicircle from oldest to youngest. My girls and I stopped here coming back from the beach in Panacea. Evidently, all these cars were used on Pat Harvey’s family farm. […]
Florida County Hwy 65 runs from the interstate south through Hosford, FL through Apalachicola National Forest and dead ends on Hwy 98 on the coast in Carrabelle. It’s 54.7 miles from Hosford to Carabelle. While driving down this highway, there are no cities, there are no dollar stores or gas stations or any other […]
As promised, here are the wildflowers I encountered while driving on FL Hwy 65 towards Sumatra in the Apalachicola National Forest. I included the common and scientific name in the caption (for all that I could identify). You are welcome to share any of the pictures or use them as backgrounds. Tomorrow, I’ll post the […]
I hope everyone had a happy International Astronomy Day! Friday night, I finished photographing wildflowers and that photogenic water moccasin around sunset.

Upon this rock, this land,
I pledge my heart; I pledge my hand.
Water is life; I stand-
Water protectors hand in hand,
1st Nations and veterans stand,
Upon this rock, this land.
Promises given, promises taken, and
Ripped away by a soldier’s hand;
Water is life; They stand-
Eye to eye across the sand,
Defenders, desecrators, take a stand,
Upon his rock, this land.
The fight- the soul of the land.
Which one shall win this hand?
Water is life; You stand-
Upon the Earth, our only land.
Promises should be kept as planned.
Upon this rock, this land;
Water is Life; We stand.
